Buffalo Chicken Calzone Recipe and Video

Description

Slice up this Buffalo chicken calzone and dip it in blue cheese dressing for your next game day gathering.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 refrigerated pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F (210 degrees C). Grease a pizza pan.
  2. Place chicken into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred with two forks.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken and Buffalo wing sauce in the hot butter until chicken is coated and heated through, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Turn pizza dough out onto a generously floured surface. Roll dough into a 12-inch round. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and spread 1 cup mozzarella cheese in the center of the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Spread chicken mixture over cheese; top chicken mixture with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  5. Fold pizza dough in half and pinch edges together to seal. Transfer calzone to prepared pizza pan and brush top with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.
