This is a Sponsored post about Buffalo Chicken Pizza Cups Recipe written by me on behalf of Texas Pete. All opinions are 100% mine.
My family loves anything Buffalo Chicken flavored. Thanks to my husband growing up in Buffalo, NY he has brought these flavors into our home. While he is the Wing maker, I try to replicate the flavors in different dishes. My kids love Pizza so I thought I would try mixing Buffalo Chicken Wings and pizza in this Buffalo Chicken Pizza Cup Recipe using one of our favorite, Texas Pete Hot Sauce.
Texas Pete Hot Sauce is a great condiment, perfect for adding spice and flavor to hot dogs, fries, pizza, soups and sandwiches but also works well as an ingredient in a variety of dishes from ribs to barbecue to red velvet cake icing? We love it in our Man Dip we make for every super bowl party. Check out other great Texas Pete Hot Sauce recipes.
These Buffalo Chicken Pizza Cups are very simple especially if you start with a frozen bread or store-bought pizza dough. Plus they would be great for a buffet or appetizer tray. You can use smaller muffin tins too for mini pizza cups. Like many good recipes, it starts with some sautéed onions. Add some cubed chicken. (I wonder if you could take a super short cut and use canned chicken like the dip? Maybe just cooked frozen chicken.
Add your Texas Pete Wing sauce and allow to heat up.
Meanwhile, Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Depending on how much pizza dough you are using, I used 1 frozen bread loaf, divide the dough into 2 pieces
Spread the chicken mixture and cheeses evenly over the dough.
The hardest part for me, I still have not perfected a good cinnamon roll, is to do just that. Roll it like a cinnamon roll and then slice into 1 1/2 to 2 inch rolls and place into the cupcake tins.
Bake and allow to cool before serving.
Of course you can serve some extra Texas Pete hot sauce or wing sauce on the side, with blue cheese or ranch dressing and carrots and celery. I may have cooked mine a little too long since I was not good about making even slices, I will do better next time. You can find Texas Pete Hot Sauce at most retailers.
