Re-Do: Buffalo Chicken Pizza


This week is one of those weeks where I feel like each day is actually a day ahead of what day it really is.  Does that make sense?  Remember that song Day-Oh, I say Daayyy-Oh…  (Ok I just wanted to say “day” again a few more times), but seriously I have no idea what day it is.  Also that song reminds me of Beetle Juice.

As you can see I’ve lost all coherency at this point. 

Either way, those weeks are the worst, because just when you think the weekend is almost here, there’s ooonnneee more day in the way.  Sigh.

So without getting into details, it’s been kind of a rough couple of weeks for me, and I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer and bum you all out, so instead of bog you down with the details, I figured I’d share something that makes me smile:


Not just any pizza.  Spicy, wonderful buffalo chicken pizza.

I did this as a guest post a few months ago for the adorable Gracie and since I haven’t had a lot of time to cook this week (sorry Brandon) I figured it was a good time to recycle.  And really, when isn’t a good time to recycle?  Mother Earth and my sanity thank you.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
(Adapted from Rachael Ray)
You’ll Need:
Whole wheat pizza crust (store-bought or homemade)
1 lbs. boneless skinless chicken tenders
1 T olive oil
1 tsp grill seasoning
1 T light butter
2-3 T Frank’s RedHot Original hot sauce (or hot sauce of your choice)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, cut into long slivers
1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread your dough out on a round pizza pan.
In a large skillet, sautee chicken in olive oil over med-high heat for about 4 minutes on each side. Slice into small pieces and set aside. Throw onions into the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes or until caramelized.
In a small sauce pan, melt butter and add buffalo sauce, tomato sauce, Worcestershire and minced garlic, mix. Add diced chicken and stir until all pieces are coated. Spread chicken and sauce mixture over your pizza crust and top with onions and cheese. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown. (You could definitely sub bleu cheese for the mozzarella, but we’re not big bleu cheese fans in the SSH household.)

Pizza is hands-down my favorite food.  I could legit eat it every almost every day.  And mix it up with buffalo sauce and crispy grilled chicken?  Do.  Work.

So hopefully tomorrow I’ll have something uplifting and sunny and all filled with butterflies and rainbows for you, but if not, I promise I’ll at least post a funny video or something.

What do you like to eat when you are having a bad day?  Or are you one of those enigmas who can’t eat when they’re stressed out?  Who ARE those people?

  1. What is the deal with the last week or two? Seriously- I’m with ya.

    I’m not a person who doesn’t eat when they’re stressed. Quite the opposite. Luckily, having a roommate around sort of keeps me in check. Otherwise, I’d of inhaled the pantry supply of cereal by now. Meh.

    We’ve also been walking a lot in the evenings. Which has helped. Or at least until we go by this amazing pizza place that smells amazing. Then I get hungry. Pizza is soooooooo good….

  2. If I am overly, spread beyond thin stressed out, I can’t even think about eating. (I ARE one of those people!) This in turns makes me hangry and then I am not just stressed out but really bitchy. It’s a treat! 😉

  3. I can completely relate right now. I am completely stressed out and all I keep thinking is the weekend is near. I hope things turn around for you 🙂

    That pizza looks absolutely delicious! I am definitely trying your recipe! 🙂

  4. I think these last few weeks have been hard for everyone! So at least you’re in good company. 🙂

    That pizza looks absolutely delicious!

  5. Hahah – I love pizza and ice cream when I’m stressed. Your pizzas looks AMAZING!

    Also – I HATE when that happens to me with the days of the week. The past two weeks I’ve thought every Wednesday was Thursday and everyday Thursday was Friday! I finally feel on track this week thank goodness!

  6. let’s be best friends. if it were socially (and nutrionally) acceptable, I’d eat pizza for every stinkin’ meal.

  7. Pizza fixes everything. I’ve eaten a lot of it over the last week, and those 2 pounds that it left on me are sort of worth it. Somehow, even though I’m completely obsessed with buffalo chicken, I’ve NEVER had buffalo chicken pizza. This needs to change immediately.

  8. I am a total stress eater. Like 5,000 calories worth of stress. It’s usually sweets though. I’m craving them right as we speak.

  9. I woke up on Monday morning thinking it was Sunday, and today I keep having to remind myself that its Thursday, not Friday. Im all messed up this week too. Its so confusing.

    That pizza looks delicious though. Now Im thinking I need to make myself pizza too. Maybe it will get my head back where it should be.

  10. I’ve been eating shit tons out of stress lately. I just polished off about 5,345 peanut m&m’s. Blah.
    It’s totally felt like one of those weeks for me too. Ick.

  11. I haven’t read the other comments, but would like to add that yes, this week has sucked ass and seems to drag on for-ever (hence the little dash thing there for emphasis.
    With that said, I hope you’re okay. I won’t be nosy, but I kind of am.
    As for food, I would love to bitch slap those people that claim they forgot to eat or were too stressed to think about food. Ummm…it stresses me out to go longer than three hours without food. Hello?
    Amy’s Organic pesto pizza, oatmeal, sunbutter and banana sandwiches and a big bowl of rice/beans/veggies with butter. Those are just a few of my go-to “this will make Abby happy for five minutes” foods. Not all at once…

  12. I am all about the cheese on a bad day…come to think of it, on a good day too! 🙂 Chocolate definitely helps as well!
