Learn to Make This Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Cast-iron Pizza That Will Have You Eating in Instead of Carrying Out
One of the things I love to do is try to recreate the dishes that my family finds most enjoyable when we eat out. I take it a step further by trying to recreate the recipe on a budget. One of the most challenging, but most rewarding, recipes was this cast iron buffalo chicken and bacon pizza. The original recipe was found at a local pizza restaurant in Alabama called Buck’s. We tried it while I was pregnant and it took until my son was 3 to nail all the flavors.
Though I am sure it is not 100% identical to the amazing pizza we first tried in that sleepy Alabama town, it comes very close. You can create this yourself with a cast iron skillet, chicken, bacon, and a few other key ingredients. The prep time takes about 15 minutes and the cook time takes 30 minutes.

Quick Tip: Don’t use a traditional buffalo sauce of hot sauce and butter. The butter will cause the pizza dough to be damp and mushy and give a raw feel to the pizza.
