I’m totally obsessed with Frank’s. Like really obsessed. Like I so put that **** on EVERYTHING! I swear it! Like, for example, in the past month I’ve put it in or on my tacos, nachos, wings, popcorn, eggs and now my pizza. I even had a little anxiety issue while pouring the last cup of it to make this recipe. I clearly need therapy, but the retail kind not the sit down in a chair and gush about how I’m sickly addicted to Frank’s Red Hot I suddenly am… because I mean c’mon THAT would be crazy.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza Ingredients
This past weekend we took a trip to Costco and the grocery store to get some much needed staples i.e garlic naan, a big fat bag of frozen berries, a rotisserie chicken… oh and wine.

I already had this leftover hunk of Maytag and I wasn’t afraid to use it. Blue cheese, add that to the list of addictions.


Now I feel I must confess. I did NOT make my own naan. I know, tisk-tisk. But I honestly just love this brand, plus it’s all natural so I feel less guilty about it. And shortcuts sometimes are a necessity in life.

Buffalo Sauce
Start by making the buffalo sauce. It’s easy… just throw together a cup of Frank’s, 4 tablespoons of butter, a 1/2 teaspoon (or more if you like it real hot) of cayenne and then some salt and pepper to your liking.

heat on low
Heat it up over low heat to melt the butter.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Saucy

Whisk to combine and there you’ve got it. Now if you wanted to go even further and venture out to make your own buffalo sauce then be my guest. But in my house… using something other than Frank’s would be illegal.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - green onion

While the sauce is warming go ahead and prep the green onions. I trim the ends off and quarter the thick parts and then just give those a rough chop.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Blue Cheese

And go ahead and crumble up the blue cheese. Of course if you don’t particularly like blue cheese, then you can totally omit it. But me personally, I could pick up this wedge and snack on it all day long.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Garlic Naans

I lightly spray an aluminum rimmed sheet pan with my Misto and place the garlic naan down, pretty-side-up.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Buffalo Sauce

Drizzle each naan with a little or a lot of the buffalo sauce. You’ll most likely have left over sauce that you can save for pretty much anything that or just double the rest of the pizza ingredients {keeping the sauce recipe the same} to make more pizzas.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Chicken

Sprinkle each pizza with a cup {give or take} with shredded cooked chicken.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Cheese

Then a half cup {give or take} of Farmers Cheese. Mozzarella or Monterey Jack would work perfectly.

Buffalo Chicken Flat Bread Pizza - Blue Cheese Sprinkle

Sprinkle with a little blue cheese…

more sauce

Drizzle with a little more buffalo sauce before popping them into a preheated 425 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.

Give the Buffalo Chicken Flatbread Pizzas a good slice and serve with a few sliced green onions over top. This would absolutely make a kick-butt app for some HUGE football game coming up… or serve this up with some pinot grigio and watch Friends with Benefits and recall how cool Kris Kross really is/was/were?!?.

    Ugh, ughhhhhh, ughhhhhh. That is all I can say since this pizza is not within my reach at this current moment. I’m just going to ignore the fact that it’s 7:30 and wish I could eat this pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Oh lord.

    You and I share the love of Franks Red Hot. I have two bottles at home and I keep one in my desk at work. People may look at me weird, but only you can understand the power of Franks. Love the simple sauce you made! That’s actually what Zingermans Roadhouse uses for their maize and blue hushpuppies. I tried asking them if I could buy the sauce and they told me they couldn’t sell it because all it was, was a bottle of Franks with a stick of butter lol. Good times.

    I found out that you can buy Frank’s hot sauce in the UK a couple of weeks ago and now I am hoarding recipes that use it. This is definitely getting made soon!

    This is making my mouth water. I might have to go out and buy the stuff to make this today. YUM.
    We love Frank’s too. We usually buy it in bulk at BJ’s. It runs in the family. My sister drinks it, well, not really, but close. She dips everything in it and goes through an obscene amount.
    thanks for a yummy recipe. can’t wait to try it.

    I’m obsessed with Frank’s too Laurie! Like, dangerously addicted. WE always have two bottles in the fridge. I’m a condiment hoarder. 🙂 I love finding new ways to eat buffalo chicken, too. And I love flat bread pizzas!! Making them especially is the most fun. Along with the green onions, I’d love caramelized onions on this baby. YUM!

    This looks so delicious. Waiting on morning sickness to ease up (hopefully!) in a couple weeks, then this and that yummy steak with compound butter are on the menu!

    Made it tonight on the grill and it came out really good. I was able to buy Frank’s Wing Sauce in a bottle and saved a little on the butter content. Can’t wait to make it for friends during football season.

    Saw this, grabbed some naan from the store and prepared it with my children. It went into both of their cookbooks they will take with them when they move out! New family favorite! I am obsessed with buffalo chicken dip and buffalo chicken pizza! Thank you!
