Just when I think I've exhausted every way to eat Buffalo chicken, I find some new way to devour it.
This Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread
has layers of spicy buffalo marinated chicken, ranch dressing, and cheese rolled up in a pizza crust.
It's incredibly easy and took me less than ten minutes to prepare, which comes in handy when we have an impromptu party to watch the game at our house.
I'm not sure why it's called garbage bread. I'm told that it's a rising trend in NYC -- kind of like an inside-out piece of pizza. Maybe it's easy for on-the-go eating like that.
Or maybe it's called garbage bread because there's no way you can make this look pretty?! It's simply impossible. But the truth for most man-food is, it may not look pretty but it tastes phenomenal.
I started with a Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust that has a hearty texture and is sturdy enough to hold all of our chunky fillings.
Instead of pizza sauce I used ranch dressing lathered generously all over the crust. You could use blue cheese dressing here too, but ranch is what I had in my pantry. Drizzle buffalo sauce over the ranch dressing, using more or less depending on how spicy you like it.
To give the chicken even more flavor, mix it together with some buffalo sauce and THEN place it on top of the pizza.
Cheese, cheese, and more cheese; I know it may seem like a lot, but it melts down to just the perfect amount.
Roll up your pizza crust into one gigantic log, carefully tucking all the insides in.
You want to place it seam side down so that none of those delicious fillings leak out.
Make sure you don't burn your mouth biting into this one. If you have the patience to let it cool a bit, it will be worth the wait! Christy joined the Tablespoon team to share her recipes and inspire family food fun. Watch her Tablespoon member profile for great new recipes!
