Ingredients
  1. 1 pound fresh pizza dough*
  2. 1¼ cups chopped roasted chicken†
  3. ½ cup buffalo sauce, divided
  4. 2 tablespoons cornmeal, divided
  5. 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  6. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  7. ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  8. ½ cup coarsely shredded mozzarella cheese
  9. ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles, divided
  10. Garnish: sliced green onion, chopped celery, and parsley leaves
Instructions
  1. Let pizza dough rest on counter at room temperature for 1 hour before using.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°.
  3. Place a pizza stone in oven while oven is preheating. (A baking sheet can be used if a pizza stone is not available.)
  4. In a small bowl, combine chicken and ¼ cup buffalo sauce, tossing to coat. Set aside.
  5. Sprinkle work surface with 1 tablespoon cornmeal.
  6. Cut pizza dough into 8 equal portions. Place dough portions on work surface, and sprinkle lightly with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll out each portion into a 6-inch round.
  7. Brush each round lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Divide mozzarella, chicken, and 3 tablespoons blue cheese among rounds.
  8. Remove heated pizza stone from oven, and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cornmeal. Carefully place pizzas on pizza stone, and return to oven.
  9. Bake until pizza crusts are light brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup buffalo sauce and remaining 1 tablespoon blue cheese, if desired.
  10. Garnish with green onion, celery, and parsley, if desired.
Notes
  1. *Available at most grocery-store deli counters.
