Freakin' Awesome Buffalo Chicken Pizza

These are approximate amounts, make yours to taste-  if you like buffalo wings, you will really love the combo of flavors.

Quick 30 minute rise pizza crust
Creamy bleu cheese dressing (if not using homemade blue cheese dressing use a good quality one found in the produce section- Marzetti's or Litehouse)
Butter
Hot sauce (preferably Frank's)
Cooked chicken, torn into bite-sized pieces (we like to use the breast from a rotisserie chicken- you can make your own slow cooker rotisserie style chicken if you don't have any leftover)
Shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven and pizza stone or baking sheet placed on lowest shelf to 500 degrees

Melt enough butter to coat chicken (a half a stick or so for a large pizza) and mix with hot sauce* and add the shredded chicken and give it a little stir to coat
Roll out dough onto floured surface into desired size/shape

Place on pizza paddle lightly dusted with flour or cornmeal*

Top with a nice layer of creamy bleu cheese dressing

Add chicken that's been soaking in buffalo sauce

Top with shredded mozzarella and slide onto preheated stone or baking sheet and bake 15 minutes for large or check after 10 for individual pizzas  (Only bake on one rack - lowest in oven- at a time for best results)

Remove from oven; slice and enjoy
*We eyeball by color/taste and though we've seen lots of recipes calling for a few drops of hot sauce to a stick of butter in various wing recipes, we don't know where that's coming from because although I am not the biggest fan of hot pepper heat, the proportion we use when making our perfect wings is 1 stick butter to 1 bottle Frank's hot sauce unless there will be lots of young children in which case we make the first batch 1 stick butter to 1/2 bottle.  Go by your own taste, but it's not too spicy with the stick to bottle ratio if you tone it down with the bleu cheese dressing.
