Easiest Buffalo Chicken Pizza Ever & a Delicious Hard Cider

2 Comments

I love pizza. seriously… it’s ridiculous how much I love pizza. It’s so convenient and easy and carb-y goodness. And nothing goes better with pizza than an ice cold beer.

Then tragedy strikes and I’m gluten free! So pizza is no longer as easy as calling Pizza Hut and ordering delivery. Beer is no longer as easy as going to the local store and grabbing a 6-pack. It actually takes some forethought.

So cue last night when I’m STARVING, craving pizza and beer (hello it’s like 9 million degrees outside of course I want an ice cold beer) and don’t want to leave the house. Luckily, I had picked up a few of these the day before:

OH WOW! They’re so good and gluten-free! I am not a huge fan of hard cider… Most of them I find too heavy and sweet, not light and refreshing. This is exactly the opposite. With only 120 calories per bottle and a light refreshing flavor that’s not too sweet or heavy, I could have a couple of these and not feel so full. DELICIOUS summer drink for those of us who can’t enjoy a Corona.

Then I had to tackle what to eat. After opening my cabinets and freezer, I found a GF pizza crust and decided to throw this baby together:

Easiest pizza ever, and very good!

Ingredients:
Pizza crust of choice (shown is Udi’s personal pan GF pizza crust)
1 can chicken breast meat
Franks Red Hot
Bleu Cheese
marinara sauce
mozzarella cheese

Before assembling pizza, drain the chicken meat and pat dry. In a bowl, coat with Frank’s Hot Sauce to taste. I then popped it into the toaster oven on broil, to soak up some of the moisture. I don’t like soggy meat!

Prepare dough as instructed. Once dough is done, Top with marinara sauce and cheese. When chicken meat is a little drier, put on top. Put pizza in oven until cheese is melted. Take out and crumble Bleu Cheese on top. That’s it!

I use ranch dressing to dip my pizza in because… I like a lot of spicy and it was overpowering at some points. yumyum.

and on another note: I started packing and moving today and I’ve been super stressed out. I stress badly, as in panic attacks… I found this in an old purse:

So true, and so needed on a day like today! ❤
