Buffalo Chicken Baguette Pizzas

If you are a lover of spicy chicken wings then you'll die for these simple to prepare Buffalo Chicken Baguette Pizzas.  Pizzas are quick and easy to make when you are using a prepared crust such as a french baguette.  They make the perfect base for all your toppings.  Today we are making a crowd pleasing pizza that everyone will die for.  

Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside baguettes are topped with shredded chicken that are smothered with buffalo sauce.  Add a little ranch dressing, some mozzarella, and some blue cheese to the mix and you have one heck of a pizza.  These are perfect for the up coming game day celebration, lunch or dinner.  You can also cut these into wedges and serve as appetizers.  Any way you slice them these pizzas will wow your taste buds and having you saying "more please", in less than 20 minutes!

What Ingredients do I need?

  • french baguette
  • shredded chicken
  • buffalo wing sauce (we like Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce)
  • ranch dressing
  • mozzarella cheese
  • blue cheese crumbles
  • cilantro
  • scallions

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use shredded beef and BBQ sauce for a BBQ Beef Pizza
  • Use a rotisserie chicken or use chicken thighs
  • A french bread loaf will work instead of a baguette
  • Use Monterey Jack cheese instead of mozzarella
  • Use blue cheese dressing instead of ranch

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Use a serrated knife to easily cut your baguette without squishing the bread
  • Watch your bread closely when broiling it, the oven toasts very quickly.
  • If you baguette does not stand up on it's own cut off a piece on the bottom to make it level.
  • Position the baguettes together on the sheet pan to avoid rolling around.
  • Using a silicone brush make spreading the dressing an easier job.

Buffalo Chicken Baguette Pizzas

yeild:  2 pizza loaves

1 french baguette (about 24 inches)
2 cups shredded chicken (rotisserie or pre-cooked roasted)
2/3 cup buffalo wing sauce (ex: Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce)
2-3 Tablespoons Ranch Dressing
1/3 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
Toppings:  chopped scallions, and chopped cilantro

Prepare the bread - Turn the oven on Broil and allow it to heat up.  Split 1 baguette in half lengthwise and arrange on a baking sheet with the cut sides up.  Broil until light golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.  Reduce oven to bake at 375 degrees.

In a small bowl combine the chicken and buffalo sauce, mixing until coated.  Set aside.  Spread the ranch dressing over the cut side of both toasted breads and sprinkle evenly with the mozzarella.  Top with the chicken mixture and then sprinkle with blue cheese.

Bake on a sheet pan until cheese has melted and bread is crisp, about 3-5 minutes.  Top with scallions and cilantro.  Cut and serve hot.
