Directions

  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.

This is good stuff! I followed the recipe, in spirit, w/a few minor tweaks based on what we had on hand. I used previously frozen (and thawed) pizza dough (Jay's Signature Pizza Crust from this site). We always keep shredded grilled chicken in the freezer, so I was able to simply heat the butter/Red Hot/chicken and eliminate the boil. Operating on rote, I sprayed and cornmealed the pan before spreading the dough (and liked the texture it added). After spreading the chicken over the base cheese, I squirted a bit of light ranch dressing, followed by the final cheese. I used Kraft's "Pizza Blend" shredded cheese, w/a bit of shredded white cheddar, too. This baked 20 minutes in our over, followed by a few minutes under broil to brown the top. Our one complaint, if you will, is it was quite salty (and I love salt). I'll search for a low sodium hot sauce to use next time. THANKS for the recipe!

This was a great base recipe. The only changes I made were to add chopped red peppers on top of the chicken, then to drizzle ranch dressing over the top, then add the mozzarella cheese. Will definitely make again!
