Naan flatbread. Naan is a soft, fluffy flatbread that makes a perfect base for this buffalo chicken pizza recipe. You can find it in the deli, bread, or sometimes freezer section of your grocery store. You can also use a different crust like pita bread or other types of flatbread.
Blue cheese dressing. Blue cheese dressing stands in for pizza sauce in this buffalo chicken pizza recipe. If you're not a fan of blue cheese, you can use ranch dressing.
Colby Jack cheese. I'm all for the convenience of a twofer like Co-Jack cheese. It provides the flavor of the Colby and the meltiness of Jack cheese. You can also use cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, or whatever you love.
Shredded chicken. This is a great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken. You can also use freshly poached or grilled chicken breasts.
Buffalo wing sauce. We like Frank's RedHot Wing Sauce -- use your favorite buffalo sauce or homemade buffalo sauce.
Blue cheese crumbles. To us, hot wings aren't hot wings without blue cheese. If you're not into blue cheese, try crumbled feta cheese or goat cheese instead.
Green onion. Sliced green onions add fresh flavor to the spicy buffalo chicken.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Flatbread
Preheat the oven to 450. Place the naan flatbreads directly on the oven rack. Warm for 2 minutes per side.
In a small bowl, toss the cooked chicken with the buffalo sauce. Set aside.
Spread 2 tablespoons of blue cheese dressing on top of each flatbread.
Add ¾ cup of shredded Co-Jack cheese, ¼ cup of buffalo chicken, 1 tablespoon of blue cheese crumbles, and ½ of the green onion to each naan pizza.
Place the flatbread pizzas directly on the oven rack. Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges are golden brown.
If desired, serve with extra buffalo sauce, blue cheese dressing, and blue cheese crumbles.
Storage & Reheating
Store leftover buffalo chicken flatbread tightly wrapped in plastic wrap or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
How to Reheat Flatbread Pizza
Reheat flatbread pizza on the stovetop or in the oven.
Stovetop. Warm a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Place the flatbread pizza in the pan and warm until the top glistens. Add a few sprinkles of water and cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil. Warm 1-2 more minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Oven. Place the flatbread on a rimmed sheet pan and cover with foil. Place the pan in the oven and turn the heat to 375 (no need to preheat). Warm for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and gooey.
Pre-bake the naan to keep the crust from getting soggy.
I know it seems like a pain, but if at all possible, shred your own cheese. It melts much smoother and creamier than pre-shredded cheese.
Naan is just one type of flatbread. Flatbread is a general term that refers to any type of bread that is flat. There are many varieties of flatbread from all over the world including chepati, focaccia, frybread, lavash, matzah, naan, pita, roti, tortillas, and many more.
Not quite, though they do have a lot in common. Hot sauce has a thin, watery consistency and is typically made from chili peppers, vinegar, and other ingredients like onion, garlic, or spices. Buffalo sauce is thicker, richer, and smoother and is usually made with hot sauce, butter, and sometimes other seasonings like paprika.
Besides buffalo sauce and chicken, common toppings for buffalo chicken flatbread pizza include shredded cheese, sliced red onion or green onions, bell peppers, chopped celery, blue cheese crumbles, and fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish. Feel free to customize your pizza with your preferred toppings, but don't overdo it. Too many toppings can make the crust soggy.
