Tray of Buffalo Chicken Pizzette

It’s almost here: Super Bowl weekend! What’s not to love about a weekend filled with great commercials, spectacular halftime entertainment, football and snack-y food?! Alright, I’ll be honest. It’s really all about the food 😉 For some reason, I don’t feel guilty about a Super Bowl buffet that doesn’t include a veggie tray. It’s a day to throw out all the rules and enjoy some junk food.

You would’ve loved to see Mary and I discussing our ideas for this post. We were giddy just thinking about all the food we could make! Our shared, secret food craving is spicy, crispy chicken sandwiches, so when I mentioned Buffalo Chicken Pizzette (plural for pizzetta, or mini pizza) we just about high-fived each other. “I’ll use a buttermilk biscuit for the crust!” I exclaimed. “Oh, and you could top it with blue cheese dressing and diced celery,” Mary added. It’s SO fun to have a friend to create fun food with!

Ready to pop into the oven!

All of our dreams came true this afternoon when I pulled these delicious creations from the oven and tried my first bite… S-u-c-c-e-s-s! (and then I quickly polished off two of these lil’ babies – yum!).

Spicy! Buttery! Crunchy!

Spicy! Buttery! Crunchy!

And so, without further ado, I give you this spicy, buttery and crunchy creation: Buffalo Chicken Pizzette!

I prefer the Trader Joe's Buttermilk Biscuits for their buttery flavor, but any canned biscuit dough will work here.
