This recipe is incredibly quick and easy. The pizza crust is made with store-bought flatbread. You can use any flatbread you like: pita bread, naan bread, or even small pizza crusts. You can use English muffins, bagels, or even French bread slices if you want mini versions.

The great thing about this recipe is that it’s super easy. You don’t have to be specific with any of the measurements, and you can adapt it to use whatever ingredients you have on hand.
If you don’t have flatbread, you can use a different crust, and if you don’t have shredded mozzarella cheese, you can use any combination of cheese that you like. Use the recipe as a suggestion and have fun with it.
Flatbread – You will need pre-made flatbread. Any type will work, naan bread, pita bread, or small pizza crusts are all good choices. Store-bought is fine, but if you have a favorite recipe for homemade flatbread, you can use that too. You can use raw pizza dough for this recipe as well. However, it will take longer to bake than when using pre-baked flatbread.
Chicken – This recipe uses pre-cooked chicken. You can use leftover chicken breasts or shredded rotisserie chicken or pre-cook some chicken in the Instant pot or slow cooker.
Hot Sauce – Frank’s Red Hot is our choice for hot sauce. The hot sauce is combined with blue cheese dressing to make a thicker, creamier sauce. But feel free to use your favorite buffalo sauce or you can use homemade buffalo sauce. You can add different hot sauces depending on how spicy you like it. You will want enough to spread on the pizza crust, along with some extra buffalo sauce to drizzle on top of the pizza before serving. If you like your pizza sauce extra creamy, you can mix a bit of cream cheese with the buffalo sauce before spreading it on the pizza.
Creamy Dressing – You will want a creamy blue cheese or ranch dressing. Blue cheese is our choice, but if you don’t like the strong flavor of blue cheese, then ranch will work just fine. Choose your favorite store-bought, or make your own.
Cheese – You can’t go wrong with any cheese you choose. Mozzarella is a good choice because it melts well, but cheddar, swiss, and Monterey Jack cheese all work well, along with some crumbles of blue cheese.
This delicious flatbread can be kept simple, or you can dress it up with additional toppings. Some choices we like are sliced green onion, diced red onions, or sliced bell peppers.
