Buffalo Chicken Pizza #hotness

This was the gooey pizza I had the other day. Buffalo chicken is not something I eat on a regular basis.  It is not even something I typically think about ordering.

However, the other day the thought of buffalo chicken pizza completely captivated me. I needed to have some.  I needed to make some.  The deal was done when Mr. J got wind of my idea and practically did a little dance.

The recipe I found sounded delicious but Mr. J had some plans of his own.  He was adamant about using the ingredients he uses for hot wings.  I wasn't prepared to go that hot, we left out the habeneros, but I let him make a few tweaks.

The pizza was still plenty hot so if you don't like it spicy leave out the cayenne pepper. we thought it was delicious. Lip-smacking, in fact.  I surely satisfied my buffalo chicken thoughts.
