Cheesy, crispy, spicy and full of flavor! The perfect Game Day Buffalo Chicken Mini Pizza.
Game season has officially begun and my son is more than excited about it. He is such a sports fan and loves to watch all games, from all teams, at all times. We like to encourage his love for sports, and more often than not, I find myself throwing mini game day parties for the family just because there’s a game going on.
My brother-in-law and his family usually join us and when we are all together, our gatherings always turn into a food affair. Because there is no party without good food. Am I right?
This week, I took game day as an opportunity to fire up my grill one last time before summer is over. If you have ever been to the Northeast during this time of the year, you know how fast temperatures can change and before you know it, it’s winter again. Seeing that temperatures are still nice, I headed outside to make these awesome game day buffalo chicken mini pizzas.
First, I made a delicious buffalo sauce to coat the chicken with and it was super easy. Simply combine butter, garlic powder, brown sugar, soy sauce and hot sauce in a sauce pan over medium heat. Then, I simply added the chicken to the sauce pan and mixed it with the sauce.
To make the buffalo sauce, I used El Yucateco Hot Sauce, which I purchased on my last run to Walmart. Boy, that was some good sauce!
After coating the chicken with the buffalo sauce, it was time to build the mini pizzas. I used store-bought pizza crust and added a layer of the buffalo chicken. Then, I topped it with a bunch of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses for extra gooeyness. I placed the pizzas on the grill, covered with the lid and allowed the cheese to melt.
When done, the pizza crust will be crispy and slightly, but deliciously, charred. Slice into quarters and enjoy!
Beware, these Game Day Buffalo Mini Pizzas are super spicy and incredibly addictive.
