As part of the FoodBuzz Tastemaker program with KC MasterpieceⓇ, I received a bottle of Buffalo marinade on the very day we were making pizza for a group.
Why not make a Buffalo Chicken pizza? To begin, I poured some of this Buffalo marinade into a small bowl and added some chunky blue cheese dressing.
Mixed it up well, and spread it on the pizza dough.
Next, I tossed some cooked chicken with some additional Buffalo marinade...
How about some thinly sliced red onion?
Top with mozzarella cheese .... and blue cheese crumbles ...
Here it is, ready to be fired up!
Some have asked me what the difference is between cooking a pizza on a stone in your oven versus baking it in a wood fired oven.
I have narrowed it down to two things ~
One is the amount of time it takes to cook. My oven, at 500°F, will cook up one of these pizzas in about 8-9 minutes. The brick oven? Two minutes, flat.
The other thing is flavor ... with a wood fired oven built with cherry, hickory, apple or alder, you get a sweet smokiness that you just can't get from a kitchen oven.
Ahhhhhhhh...there it is, in all its cheesey, bubbly filled glory.
One bite, and my husband declared it his absolute MOST favorite pizza! He said the marinade is HOT (as indicated on the label!) but was tempered and balanced by the mozzarella and blue cheese.
Hubby liked it so much, that he had me make an extra pie to take to work the next day ~
stay tuned for another creation with this marinade ...
