Buffalo Chicken Deep Dish Pizza Bites

Buffalo Chicken Deep Dish Pizza Bites

Pizza is one of the favorite football-watching snacks. Now, it may not have won a Vince Lombardi trophy...at least not yet. But we'll come back to that. Right up there, also at the top of the list are buffalo wings. You get where we're going with this. Mash-up time! Bite-sized pizza with spicy buffalo chicken, cooling blue cheese and crispy bacon. And yes, we daresay that these are trophy-worthy.


PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 12 to 15 minutes
SERVES: makes about 18 pizza bites


1 pizza dough, store-bought or your favorite recipe
2 cups diced cooked chicken (Chicken Challenge chicken is perfect, as is any leftover cooked chicken)
2 teaspoons olive oil, plus more to prepare the dough
2-4 tablespoons hot sauce, to taste
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 cup crumbled blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola
8 cups raw baby spinach
1/2 cup cooked crumbled cooked bacon
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Roll out the pizza dough and use a round cutter (or even a glass) slightly larger than the holes in the muffin tin to cut out 18 rounds or as many as you can fit.

Use your fingers to stretch the dough but without tearing it press them into a muffin tin.

Meanwhile, in a medium-sized skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the spinach in handfuls and sauté for about 3 minutes until slightly wilted.

(Don't worry, the amount will reduce drastically.) Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Remove from the heat. In a medium-sized bowl toss the chicken with the hot sauce.

Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Preheat, lid closed, to 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.

Drizzle each round of dough with olive oil and layer some of the chicken, sautéed spinach and blue cheese in each of the muffin cups.

Put the muffin tin on the grill grate and cook them for 12 to 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.

Take the pizza bites off the grill and finish with the crumbled bacon. Game time!
