First buffalo pizza
« on: November 12, 2013, 02:35:56 PM »
No chicken for my first attempt.  Trying to get the base taste right.
Used scratch ranch instead of red sauce and hit it with scratch spicy garlic wing sauce on top.  Needed more cheese to balance out the flavor.

Try some blue cheese crumbles in there. To me a "true" Buffalo Wing dipping sauce is into blue cheese dressing. Like Reuben's, need horseradish sauce for the "original" touch not the 1000 island thing

I agree about the bleu cheese. I hate the buffalo wing with ranch fad. I grew up in central NY (basically equidistant to Buffalo and NYC, so I really got the best of both worlds). Something you might want to try: instead of ranch being the base I would use the Buffalo sauce and drizzle bleu cheese on top (I use marzetti's the ultimate... in thethe refridgerated section. It's amazing)

Another suggestion: I find that plain buffalo sauce doesn't quite taste right; it needs that fried chicken grease ha. What I do is get some chicken thighs with the skin on. I deep fry them, then rough chop em up, shake em in some sauce. Then I use that sauce for the base, add my cheese, then add the chopped chicken. When the pie comes out, drizzle some blue cheese dressingon or add some crumbles, whichever you prefer. YUM!

Horseradish sauce?  What?

Horseradish sauce?  What?

I think the "classic" Reuben uses "Russian" dressing rather than 1000 Island. That typically has horseradish in it - for example:

1 cup mayonnaise
cup (4 Tbsp) chili sauce, cocktail sauce or ketchup (see note below)
1 Tbsp drained horseradish
1 tsp minced onion

Sounds good to me!

Ah, Thanks adm.  I was under the impression that russian dressing was ketchup + mayo, while thousand islands was russian + relish.  It seems my recipes were a bit too bare bones.

Too me Russian and 1000 Island are not far apart, I like a nice creamy horseradish sauce on mine. It may be the Midwest thing I grew up with. If I were to pick between the russian or 1000 it would be the Russian with the horseradish in it. But, we digress from the buffalo pizza post..... :-D

Good point, let's get back on track.  The look of that pizza is pretty good.  I do question the ranch dressing choice also though.  The two buffalo chicken pizzas i've enjoyed most are from Pontillo's (a rochester, ny chain) and NY Pizza suprema (slightly ahead of La Traviata). Pontillo's uses a buffalo wing sauce, on the dough, topped with mozzarella and buffalo-dressed chicken tenders (breaded and fried).  Blue cheese dressing comes in a plastic container on the side.  What about swapping where you used the ranch and the wing sauce?

NY pizza suprema and la traviata put buffalo-marinated chicken pieces (not breaded) on top of a normal pie.

what are you using for your wing sauce?
