Buffalo Chicken Pizza Fri, 01/25/08 9:57 AM (permalink)
Who has had this wonderful creation? More and more pizzerias are serving it, and if it is done right, it is excellent. Chicken marsala pizza is another winner!

    No thanks for me.

    IMO. different flavored pizzas are often (I don't say always) a crutch for places that make lousy pizza to make something that people think tastes good.

    I would by far rather have a good traditional style pizza, and have some good wings with it.

    But that is just my opinion

        California Pizza Kitchen has been making one for years. Ity's pretty good for what it is, but I'm more of a traditionalist and I usually make my own BBQ pizza at home if I'm really craving it. They have locations in Scarsdale and Westbury. Are those near New Rochelle?

              I love Buffalo Chicken Pizza and I usually order it if its offered. Luckily, most places around my area do offer it.

                  I liked the Pizza Hut version of this pizza, it was like a pizza/hot wing hybrid. I have never had another version I enjoyed, although a local pizzeria here doesn't do too bad at it.

                  I am not a pizza purist, but I love my pizza to be pizza and my hot wings to have bones in them, lol.

                    I like Buffalo chicken Pizza IF IT IS MADE right. I have tried some dang bad ones. Pappa Johns here in St.Louis had one for a while that was BBQ chicken Pizza. I waited a long time to try it.

                    I tried it by accident as we ordered 10 pizzas for a Pizza party and for soem reason a BBQ chicken Pizza was delivered by mistake. I will say. I really liked that pizza. The sauce was a BBQ sauce.

                    Now, they do nto have that pizza anymore.

                      I used to make Buffalo chicken calzones when I worked at Old Chicago years ago. It was just oven roasted chicken with a little ranch dressing, a little house made hot wing sauce, mozzarella and provolone cheeses.It was excellent!! I also used to make a Buffalo chicken sandwich and Caesar salad. I haven't worked there for years so I don't know if they still have these items on their menu.

                          I have had the buffalo chicken pizza from Upper Crust, a chain from Eastern Mass that has found its way onto the Roadfood list of restaurants (not sure why--it is better than average pizza pie you can get in the 'burbs, but nothing too special).

                          Anyway, part of the thrill for me of buffalo chicken is the dip and the celery. This pie, at least, didn't have any celery and didn't have enough bleu cheese (which doesn't seem to me to have the proper melting properties for decent pizza anyway). What resulted was too spicy and too salty. If we want buffalo wings, we get...buffalo wings.

                          On a side note, I made buffalo chicken lasagna once, and that was pretty good (notwithstanding the lack of celery, which I will add next time).

                            I doubt they called it "Buffalo" wings, too. Even in Syracuse, in the early 70's we just ordered wings - there was no other style. By the mid-80's, the "Buffalo" part was added, as people got creative and started making honey bbq wings and such. I don't have to tell you how upset I was when I ordered "wings" and got something other than Buffalo wings.

                                It was a big deal at the fair that first year. Folks were saying "buffalos don't really have wings, do they?". True I swear!

                                      Your right Doug! Italialn sausage should be served with peppers and onions, not on a pizza! Hmm, Maybe all of that might be good on pizza?

                                        That may be so, but we didn't call them Buffalo wings in CNY and WNY, we just called them "wings." In fact, my Buffalo friends still call them "wings." If it has some other sauce, like BBQ, or honey BBQ, etc., then they call them "honey bbq wings, or "bbq wings," etc. An order of "wings" in Buffalo, is an order of "Buffalo wings" anywhere else.

                                          You are now arguing for the sake of arguing. Your thinking is flawed! Real pizza makers would laugh their a--es off at you.

                                            Score, the first year I saw any kind of non fried chicken wings being sold at the State Fair of Texas, and I never miss a year, they were called "Buffalo Wings". No one knew what in the world they were. Visions of flying buffalos were spinning aound in the brains of thousands of fair goers. No one guessed that this was some kind of chicken wing that stared in Buffalo NY. Hey, were in Texas. The folks at the booth, right near BIG TEX, had to explain. The wings went over great because everyone was talking about them. And, they tasted real good! There was always a long line to get them.

                                                Given the cheapness of pizza and the availability, seems silly to me that you wouldn't give it a one time try before passing judgement. Especially, if you like the two solo. Once in a while I get goat or feta cheese as a topping on my pizza and the "real" pizza makers who would laugh from their nethers can kiss mine. I'm not going to pass up what I like for their beliefs. We'd be missing an awful lot if people just stuck to what the originators did.

                                                Chili on a hot dog? That's not how the real hot dog masters did it. I invoke Andrew Zimmer's mantra.

                                                  Lol Dive. I heard an comercial for Andrew's show and a guy was ordering a hot w/... ketchup on it. Andrew said "uck, do you know whats in those things". Then he took a bite of his grilled rat's head.

                                                  True that most pizza toppings started not so long ago. I doubt they had peperoni in Italy. Oh, nevermind... It's called "salame piccante" over there. But... they haven't always put it on a pizza, have they? I guess you would have to know how those first three pizzas for the princess were made.

                                                    I like BBQ pizza, but a little goes a long way for me. Really any pizza tastes good with a bit of BBQ sauce, so sometimes I just have a little dipping bowl on the side.

                                                    Speaking of dipping bowls, best things I ever bought. Like so many of you I'm not a fan of slopping sauces all over everything. But I do like a bit on the side, and not running all over the plate into my veggies.

But, when I got to the fair opening day I was in the same boat as the other folks. I had no idea what a "buffalo wing" was. Nore did hardly anyone else in Texas.

                                                        I was only kidding. Jessica Simpson is from Texas, and she did the Domino's commercial where her line was something like, "Buffalos have wings?" Or something to that effect. It was a funny commercial that came on the heels of her "Chicken of the Sea" gaff.

                                                            Score, I am pretty sure they were selling "Buffalo Wings" at the State Fair of Texas" before the mid 80's.


                                                            That may be so, but we didn't call them Buffalo wings in CNY and WNY, we just called them "wings." In fact, my Buffalo friends still call them "wings." If it has some other sauce, like BBQ, or honey BBQ, etc., then they call them "honey bbq wings, or "bbq wings," etc. An order of "wings" in Buffalo, is an order of "Buffalo wings" anywhere else.




                                                            You are absolutely correct, sir! I spent a couple of years at the University of Buffalo, and they were just "wings". That was in the Good Old Days when the drinking age was 18. There was a pub in the basement of the dorm I was in, and they sold wings to go along with the pitchers of beer.

                                                            Like others, I was at first puzzled when I was told that the local specialty was chicken wings. Wings? (imagining something like a KFC wing) What's so special about that? That's a crummy part of a chicken! [nibble, nibble, nibble] Hmmm, I think they may have something here...
