buffalo chicken pizza

Last night I tried another new recipe and it was quite delicious, though I would change a couple things.
The biggest thing I'd change is to leave it as a pizza and not roll it up into a loaf.
I used THIS RECIPE but I will post it below as well with my changes.

1 large boneless chicken breasts
olive oil
1 pizza dough (I used Pillsbury but you could make your own)
shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup of Franks Wing Sauce (I used western family brand)
ranch dressing (or bleu cheese)

Pre-heat oven to 425°F.

Cut chicken into cubes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Heat teaspoon of olive oil in skillet and add chicken when hot.  Cook chicken completely and then add 1/3 cup of wing sauce.  Stir to coat chicken and let simmer for a minute or two.  Take chicken off heat and let cool. (at this point I shredded my chicken so it wasn't in big chunks)

Roll out your dough on a greased pan. If you are making a pizza and not a loaf go ahead and bake your crust for about 6 minutes. Remove from oven and top with ranch dressing (however much you want) and a little bit of wing sauce, maybe 1-2 T depending on how spicy you like it. Spread the sauce around so it mixes into the ranch. My sauce wasn't very spicy, in fact the pizza didn't taste spicy at all.
Anyway, top with your shredded chicken and however much cheese you want. If you roll it up into a loaf I recommend using less cheese than you would for a pizza.
Put it in the oven. For pizza cook for 6-9 more minutes, for a loaf cook for 13-17 minutes. Loafs can be a little tricky because you can't see if the inside is done, that's why I recommend just doing a pizza.

Next time I may add more wing sauce cause it didn't have a ton of flavor but it was still delicious! Enjoy!
