Cook your chicken on the stove top (I cooked my chicken in a pan, adding water after the tenders began to brown).  Let simmer until tender and easy to shred. **To save time on party/game day, cook your chicken and shred it ahead of time.

I cut my gluten-free pizza into sticks for party-serving purposes. You can cut the pizza into any shape that your gluten-free heart desires!

So, How’s It Taste? 

The consensus on the pizza was that it was magnificent. My mom, gluten free and not a spicy foods kind of gal, loved the pizza. She thought the Buffalo sauce had just the right amount of “kick”.

My gluten-eating stepdad enjoyed the Buffalo Chicken Pizza, too. He even requested that I leave him a couple slices for leftovers. This is a man who has a reputation of never eating leftovers, so I take that as an serious compliment.

If you’re looking for a gluten-free party dish to service this coming Super Bowl Sunday, this is the winner. Let the gluten-free applause begin!
