Buffalo Chicken Calzones

The Spouse and I have a go-to recipe that we call Nuclear Chicken. It's one of those recipes we make whenever we don't know what else to make. We occasionally dress it up with dirty rice or things like that but, basically, it's a "I don't really want to cook" deal.

The following is basically Nuclear Chicken, only stuffed into pizza dough, covered with blue cheese and mozzarella and baked. It ends up tasting pretty much like chicken wings with blue cheese dip. I'm sure you could turn these into some sort of pizza bite for parties.

Buffalo Chicken Calzones

1/2 tbsp butter
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce
paprika
cayenne pepper
Luzianne Seasoning
chili powder

1 pizza dough (we use breadsmith's whole wheat)
mozzarella cheese
blue cheese

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter and olive oil. Heat until butter is melted and oil is warmed. Add in chicken and cook until browned on all sides. Add in hot sauce and spices. Stir to coat. Sautee until chicken is cooked thru. Cool completely.

Preheat oven to 425.

Roll out dough, cut into quarters. Pile chicken on one side of the dough. Sprinkle with blue cheese and mozzarella cheese to taste. Seal the packets. Place on pizza stone or pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and crispy. Let sit 5 minutes. Serve.
