Buffalo Chicken Pizza Roll [Recipe]

If you love pizza, chances are you also like pizza rolls, maybe even more. And if you love buffalo chicken, then this buffalo chicken pizza roll has excellent potential to become your favorite!

Don’t be alarmed by its name since this combo is super easy to prepare, even more so if you happen to have pre-made dough from the store, so you don’t have to prepare your own. Here’s how to make this delicious version of everyone’s favorite pizza roll.

Why Should You Try to Prepare This Roll?

First of all, it’s very delicious but super easy to make, while it can be both an excellent appetizer idea and a whole meal if you add a salad or maybe some sauce on the side. 

What’s more, this is an excellent chance to find another use of that Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce you’ve been only using for the chicken wings and has been standing on your kitchen shelf for too long. 

Pizza is one of the favorite meals worldwide. Originating from Italy, people around the world wanted to add a twist to it. So, that’s how the pizza roll was made. But, we can call it by its right name, and that’s stromboli!

Lastly, the variety of chicken meat you can use is great, so if you happen to have some chicken leftovers, go on and use them!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Pizza Roll?

This homemade pizza roll (stromboli) is an easy-to-make crowd-pleaser, so you can prepare and serve it whenever you have friends or family over but don’t have enough time for preparation! Here’s what you need for it:

  • Ranch Sauce or White Sauce Dip for Nachos – This is a simple sauce that is basically a sour cream with some spices creating a perfect combination that can be mixed with numerous dishes. 
  • Pizza Dough Sheet – You can either use pre-made dough from the store or make your own. 
  • Half of Baked Chicken – While the measure is precise, you can either use half the leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken leftovers or buy half a chicken and bake it or fry it in a frying pan.
  • Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce – What’s buffalo chicken without a buffalo wings sauce?
  • Cheese – Cheese is just as essential as the chicken for this recipe because who doesn’t love that melted cheese that comes out when you cut this roll into pieces? You can choose whatever cheese you prefer or you have currently in the fridge.

Now that you have all the essential ingredients, you can begin with preparation.

  • Start by shredding the chicken and then adding it to the bowl, where you will mix it with three tablespoons of Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Wings Sauce.
  • Use 1 cup of White Sauce Dip for Nachos and spread it over the dough while leaving the rest as a dipping sauce. 
  • Spread the chicken mix vertically in the middle of the dough, add cheese on top of it, roll the dough, and twist the ends together so the cheese won’t go out during baking. 
  • Preheat the oven to 425 °F (220 °C) and bake the roll for 20 minutes.

Serving Suggestions and Additional Tips

While I guarantee you will be anxious to try it out straight from the oven, let it set for at least 10 minutes after it’s baked, not only to prevent all the cheese from melting out but also to avoid getting your mouth burned.

Once it cools down, slice it into pieces as thick as you wish and serve it with the rest of the white sauce. 

You can also choose to sprinkle some spring onions on top, but the sauce is already hot enough, so you might not want the extra hotness.

Speaking of the sauce, while it might not be too hot for adults, you should be careful with giving it to children. If you plan to do that, try a milder version, such as Texas Pete Extra Mild Wing Sauce.

Lastly, if you have any extra buffalo chicken left, you can save it for the next day and prepare a couple of chicken piadinas or tortillas.
