Extra Garlicky Buffalo Chicken Pizza

When I say extra garlic.....

I really MEAN IT.

A half head was on this pizza.

No shame. No shame at all.

I am still putting all my faith that garlic is my reason for not getting super sick this year so far (knock knock knockin on wood)

But back to the pizza.

Duh - Pizza is my love.

Buffalo is life.

It's the best Pizza on earth.

But what's even better - is, you can so use that leftover chicken for this!! Cubed, shredded, drumsticks - ANYTHING!

Just tear and drop it like its hot in the franks. And boom. Done.

I used half my pizza dough recipe for this pizza to get a nice thin crust.

You can just save half for another night in the week or....make two pizzas!

This pizza is a "sauce-less" pizza I guess you can say. It's more of a cheese based pizza.

Can't go wrong there.

And my FAVORITE part, is the celery!

You can't eat buffalo without those celery sticks.

I hate the sticks to be honest. And I don't have a love for celery, but when its chopped up real small it just adds the perfect necessary crunch to this pizza.
