Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

Is everyone who lives in the States ready for Super Bowl Sunday? We are ready to go with preparations beginning on Saturday. I started the Chocolate Coconut Cheesecake with Rum and we had this fabulous pizza! Today I am making a different version of a Buffalo Wing Pizza that I can’t wait to try. We use the Original Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings Sauce – this is an authentic wing sauce as many are rather questionable that claim to be Buffalo! During our travels we have been served “Buffalo Wings” and they were rather humorous. For the cooked chicken I shake them with medium sauce, which was a nice contrast to the blue cheese dressing that is meant to reduce the heat of the wing sauce. My husband likes his a bit hotter so he just added some Buffalo Wing sauce to his pizza – that is a great option if people like different levels of heat! The cheddar cheese is a nice compliment to the wing sauce – I used 2/3 cup since 1/3 was not enough but next time I would add a bit less cheese to showcase the Buffalo chicken. And don’t forget to add a bit of crumbled blue cheese when serving!

The below closeup picture shows the blue cheese sauce, the vegetables, and the Buffalo Wing chicken blends in with the cheddar cheese. I diced the carrots and celery small and they provide a nice crunch as if you were having chicken wings, blue cheese with carrots and celery. A popular staple in the Buffalo region! To learn more about how the Anchor bar discovered chicken wings click here and here. Their wikipedia page documents how Teressa Bellissimo discovered chicken wings back in the 1960’s – a story known by many Buffalonians. Teressa is credited with the creation of the dish when she deep-fried some wings and covered them in Frank’s RedHot hot sauce and butter. Back then chicken wings were not popular and often thrown away. She served them with blue cheese dip as an appetizer at the bar. They were initially offered for free. Now chicken wings are in demand around the country and can be expensive depending upon supply and demand. Every year in Buffalo we have a wings festival where different restaurants bring their best Buffalo Wing Sauce to win top honors and bragging rights!

I love how a cast iron skillet pizza looks coming out of the oven! This is a perfect healthier option for us by using a rotisserie chicken, dice the meat and shake in wing sauce that has 0 calories. Blue cheese dressing is excellent but keep it light!

½ cup Light Blue Cheese Dressing

  1. I so like the idea of the cooked chicken tossed in wing dressing and then arranged on the pizza. I’m afraid if I start on one of these, nobody else will get as much as a crumb. 🙄

      ha ha – it was awesome!! I loved the heat of the wing sauce contrasted with the blue cheese – I hope you try it – just awesome!

      1. I will, but may need to wait till I drop some of the extra ‘handles’ from Christmastime eating. :mrgreen:

      2. Bernice says:

        ha ha – I know what you mean! I try to make this as light as possible – maybe reduce the cheddar cheese a bit to reduce calories and you could also cut back on the blue cheese light dressing.

      3. Might as well not have it till I’ve earned it good and proper and eat it like I deserve. 🙄

      4. Bernice says:

        That is a great reward!!

      5. Sigh. The rewards don’t come as often anymore. :mrgreen:

  2. It looks like such a fun recipe for today; when the game gets anxious I am going to try this. Everyone else from Seattle is in Phoenix today, so I am going to have to be careful on the portion size.

    1. Bernice says:

      It is a perfect recipe for Super Bowl Sunday!! Enjoy the game!!

  3. Looks delicious!! More cheese the better and a cold beer is needed with this one!! 🙂

    1. Bernice says:

      Yes I had a glass of Red but beer would also be good!! I really loved this pizza! And don’t forget the Buffalo Wing sauce. 🙂

    A delightful fun dish to make, I see! It looks very scrumptious too, dear Bernice! x

    1. Bernice says:

      It was heavenly – it is now one of my favorite Cast Iron Skillet Pizzas! I love the combination of the heat from the wing sauce and cooling affect from the blue cheese dressing. 🙂

  5. Looking good and delicious!
