Buffalo Sauce

Perhaps you’re familiar with how wings are usually paired with buffalo sauce, but how about you use buffalo sauce on your pizza? That’s what we’re here for — time to make a sauce that will give your pizza a really nice, spicy touch!

The main ingredient is butter. The butter not only gives the sauce the thickness it requires, it also makes it creamy and easy to work with. This is not a watery sauce, meaning it’s not going to soak the dough as much as other sauces.

There are a couple things you should keep in mind, though. One is that, since butter is the main ingredient, baking pizzas with this sauce may not be as simple as putting it in the oven and letting it do its magic. You’d do well in keeping an eye on the pizza, so the butter doesn’t burn or any unexpected effects occur. You also should remember this is a sauce with a high amount of fats, so try to limit the use of oil your pizza has. And finally, apply with moderation. This is a spicy sauce, after all. Don’t add so much you won’t be able to eat it.

The sauce will last around one month in the fridge, in a sealed container. Enjoy the taste of a pizza made with buffalo sauce!
