Buffalo Chicken Bread

 My middle child hates school deeply and passionately.  If it wasn't for PE and lunch, I don't think I'd get him on the bus in the morning.   To lesson the blow of school starting this week, I wanted to make him something special for dinner .  
Chicken Wings are his very favorite and so when I saw this on Pinterest I thought I'd give it a try.  The original recipe can be found here (finding a new life through food), but here's how I made mine:

You'll Need:
Pizza Dough (recipe below if you need one)
2 cups Cheddar Cheese
2-3 cooked and shredded chicken breast
Louisiana Hot Sauce
Bleu Cheese Dressing

Preheat oven to 400. Grease a cookie sheet and sprinkle white cornmeal on top. Mix chicken and hot sauce.  (I used just enough to turn the chicken red, because I was worried about it being to spicy-but add as much as you'd like). Mix in cheese. Roll out pizza dough into a rectangle. Top w/ chicken mixture.  Roll dough into a log and pinch seams. (I rolled one the long way and one the short way and didn't notice much difference) Place on cookie sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Serve with bleu cheese dressing.

Pizza Dough (it makes 2)
You'll need:
1 Tbl oil
1 Tbl sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tbl yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
4 cups of flour

Mix oil, sugar, and water in a mixing bowl.  Sprinkle yeast on top. Cover with dish cloth and let rest for 5 minutes until it gets foamy.  Add 1 cup of flour and salt.  Mix well.  Add enough of the remaining flour one cup at a time until it forms a stiff dough.  Knead every 10 minutes for the next hour (I just used my bread hook on my mixer). Don't stress too much about this.  I haven't really noticed a difference when I only remember to knead it 2 times and it still worked out.  Also when I've been in a rush, I have only let it rise for 30 minutes and it still turned out just fine.


It was super yummy!  I was worried the bread would be hard or soggy, but it was perfect.  I am so making it again, but next time I am going to add olives and onions.



UPDATE: This was so good, I actually made it again yesterday.  My family was thrilled to have it twice in one week.  I added olives, but while all of us love black olives, we didn't love them in this.  It wasn't disgusting, but we all agreed it's better sans olives.
