Units Scale

For the Buffalo Pizza Sauce:

  • 1 cup Buffalo Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Butter

For the Chicken Meatballs:

  • 2 lb Ground Chicken
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Large Organic Egg
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

Cheeses used:

  • 1 lb Muenster Cheese Block
  • 1/2 lb Low Moisture Mozzarella Cheese
  • 12 oz. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

For the Pizza Dough:

  • 1 lb Fresh Pizza Dough
  • 1/3 cup Pastry Flour


  1. Begin by pre-heating the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Chop your Muenster cheese, mozzarella cheese block, and fresh cilantro into small pieces and set to the side.
  3. Pre-heat small cooking pan to medium/low heat and add butter. Once melted, add all remaining buffalo pizza sauce ingredients. Allow to cook for 5 minutes. Lower heat to simmer.
  4. Add ground chicken and all chicken ingredients into a large bowl and mix together well with hands. Form small meatballs with the chicken mixture. 
  5. Pre-heat cooking pan to medium/high heat and cook the meatballs for 3 to 4 minutes each side.  Remove from heat, cut them in half, and top with 1/2 cup of buffalo wing sauce. 
  6. Add flour to clean counter top. Form pizza dough into a 15-inch circle. Add dough into the springform baking pan allowing the excess dough to hang over the edges of the pan.
  7. Add chopped mozzarella block and chopped Muenster cheese block to the bottom of the pan. Place 3/4 of the cooked chicken meatball halves over the cheese. Add 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese over the meatballs.
  8. Spread the buffalo pizza sauce evenly over the top of the pizza. Place remaining chicken meatball halves over the sauce. Top off with remaining 4 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  9. Fold the sides of the dough into the insides of the springform baking pan and place the pan onto a large flat baking pan to catch any drippings.
  10. Bake pizza at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then lower heat to 400 degrees to cook for another 15 minutes. Allow pizza to cool for 20-30 minutes before serving.



For the chicken meatballs: Remember to keep hands moist to help prevent the meat from sticking to your hands when forming the meatballs.
