Buffalo Turkey Pizza
Buffalo Turkey Pizza is a clever leftover turkey recipe because pizza is awesome.
- Whole Wheat Pizza Dough or a purchased crust
- 1/4 cup ranch dressing original or spicy
- 1 1/2 cup cooked turkey or chicken meat chopped
- 1/4 medium red onion thinly sliced
- 1/2 large green bell pepper seeded and thinly sliced
- 2 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
- fresh cracked pepper
Preheat oven to 425F with the pizza stone (if using) on the middle rack. Once the oven is ready, continue to heat the stone in the oven an additional 10 minutes to make sure the stone is fully heated.
Remove the pizza stone from the oven. Put the pizza dough or prepared crust on the stone.
Layer, in order, the ranch dressing, turkey or chicken, veggies, and cheese. Drizzle Buffalo sauce over top. Finish by grinding fresh cracked pepper over top.
Put the stone with the pizza back in the oven and cook 10-20 minutes, depending on the crust you are using and its thickness, until cheese is melty and crust is toasty.
Remove from the oven and serve. Yields: 8 slices.
If you want to spice up this pizza more, you can use spicy ranch or just add a bit of Sriracha to regular ranch. I have used regular ranch and spicy with good results every time.
I have used both whole milk and part-skim mozzarella for this pizza, and the whole milk melts much better.
