A Family Favorite

We love meals that are as much fun to make as they are to eat! Homemade pizza can be made to your liking, thick or thin crust, and your choice of toppings.

This recipe uses Marie’s Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing as the sauce. The dressing adds a great tangy flavor and of course chunks of blue cheese because more cheese is always better!

We all know that a great creamy dressing pairs perfectly with buffalo wings (and helps to cool the heat a little bit)! Marie’s Creamy Ranch Dressing is great on this pizza too!

    1. It will depend on the size of your chicken breasts, but approximately 3 chicken breasts. And any brand of pizza dough will work just fine.

  1. I would like to make this Pizza, but my Chicken is boneless, skinless Breast. How would I cook it to shred it?? I usually make Baked Chicken Fingers with them. I don’t have the Marie’s Blue Cheese, so what can I use instead?? Some of my family doesn’t like Blue Cheese. Want to make this fantastic to go with the Baked Buffalo Wings. My family loves Spicy. I’m sure these will be a joy along with good games. Thanks!!!

  2. I made this using the for lunch using the excellent dough recipe. I took the short cut route and used canned chicken breast (from Costco), mayo for the “sauce” because I wasn’t sure if my kid would care for the Blue Cheese. I sprinkled a little bit of garlic over the mayo, then topped with the buffalo chicken, very thin sliced yellow onion, and mozzarella. I baked it at 550 for 7 minutes. When it came out I drizzled the Blue Cheese dressing over it and topped it with mounds of shredded iceberg lettuce.
    It was divine!5 stars
