Fire energy is a funny thing in the world of witchcraft. Just like in food, a little bit can go a long way, and too much can knock you down for a while afterward. It's like if you had a pile of sticks and logs to last a certain amount of time. You needed a lot of energy for something, so you threw all your wood on the fire all at once to make it burn big and hot. But once that fire dies down, there's no fuel left to keep you going.
And like sure, you can eat one or two Atomic hot wings, but you'll never be able to consume enough to properly fill you up and fuel you for the day. Fire energy is best approached with caution. We often can't survive without the warmth it provides, but it can easily burn us, or burn us out.
What makes Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza so awesome?
This Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza has just the right amount of fire energy. A thin but not stingy layer of Buffalo sauce replaces the usual tomato sauce in a pizza providing consistent heat throughout. It then gets topped with juicy shredded chicken, plenty of shredded mozzarella, crumbles of blue cheese, and a sprinkle of green onions for a bit of crunch. It's spicy, but it won't blow your head off.
The thing I love about making pizza at home is that everyone can get exactly what they want. Make a half and half or divide the dough and let each person top their own pizza before it goes into the oven. Serve this with a big crunchy green salad with creamy dressing for a fun family dinner.
Magical Properties of Chili Peppers
Chili peppers of all types, along with their related hot sauces and powdered spices all carry the same energy. They can definitely take on subtle differences, but the similarities are undeniable. The most prominent metaphysical property is obviously fire energy. Chilies can also be used to speed up spells or to remove obstacles. They're sort of like a metaphysical explosive charge that blows open the doors of possibility.

Tips for making Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza
Pizza making is pretty personal. I've given suggested measurements in the recipe card, but seriously, just eyeball it. Add as much as looks good to you. You do want to make sure your oven is fully preheated before baking your pizza, though, so give it plenty of time to heat up. If you have a pizza oven or some other fancy method for cooking pizza, that's cool, too. And my pizzas are rectangular just because I don't have a round baking sheet. Do what works for you.
You can definitely use make ahead homemade pizza dough here. It's totally delicious. Or if you have a store-bought version that you prefer, that's cool, too. I always just stretch and form my pizza dough with my hands instead of getting out the rolling pin. It works just fine.
Once you've got your dough in place, all you need to do is spread a thin layer of sauce, then scatter your toppings over to your heart's content. Put the chicken under the cheese, and the green onions on top. Bake until the crust is golden and puffed, then slice and eat. Easy peasy.
Yes! The pizza goes in the oven at a high temperature for a short amount of time, so all your ingredients should always be pre-cooked, especially chicken, which should never be eaten undercooked. Chicken will not be done in the amount of time it takes to bake a pizza.
The main difference with buffalo pizza is that the tomato sauce is replaced with buffalo sauce. Other than that, everything's pretty much the same.
Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza is always going to be a yes from me. It's perfect for, well, basically everything.Print
