Ingredients

Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce it’s gotta be Frank’s, no substitutions!
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste optional. This will help to thicken the sauce

Toppings:

  • 1 pizza dough homemade or store bought
  • 1 heaping cup precooked smoked chicken shredded
  • 2 medium sized celery stalks diced
  • ½ small onion thinly sliced
  • 1 medium sized tomato diced
  • ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees with pizza stone placed in the center of the oven.
  2. In a small saucepan heat up the butter, hot sauce, tomato sauce, and tomato paste until combined and thickened. Approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Roll out dough on a wooden pizza paddle to desired thickness (I prefer my dough as thin as I can get it). After rolling out the dough, transfer it into the oven onto the pizza stone and par-bake it for about 1 minute — just to give it a little strength to hold the load, and then remove it. (If you don’t have a pizza stone and use a round aluminum pizza pan then you can just omit this step of par baking the dough. I find it helpful to par-bake the dough so you easily load it up with the ingredients without the pizza falling apart.)
  4. After removing the dough from the oven, load it up with sauce first; then evenly layer the chicken, celery, onion, tomatoes and cheeses. Bake approximately 12-14 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is nicely melted.
