I know I’ve been posting a lot of sweets lately so I hope you enjoy this savory break! Never fear, #PBChocSat will be back tomorrow as per the usual schedule, but I think it’s time I threw in some game day food to snack on. This weekend we shall feast on stromboli! But not just any stromboli…

I’ve somehow only made 2 kinds of stromboli on my blog thus far, one fairly traditional and the other a breakfast option. Today I am adding to the lineup with a version perfect for watching your favorite sports team, party appetizer, or heck just slice it in half and call it dinner for two. I present, the Buffalo chicken stromboli!

You know the ever popular party appetizer Buffalo chicken dip? Yea I pretty much put that rolled up inside of pizza dough and baked it. Just add a little extra cheese and viola! I bet it would also be good as filling for cheesy chicken crescent rolls, too. 

While I made my own pizza dough, you could definitely use store bought as you will need to grab some Curly’s Sauceless Pulled Chicken in the refrigerated meat case at your grocery store to make this (aka making life and this recipe even easier).

Yield: 4 servings Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 1/2 lb pizza dough (I halved this recipe)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (I used reduced fat)
  • 1/4 cup hot cayenne pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup Ranch or Blue cheese dressing, plus more for dipping
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
  • 6 oz. (half of a 12 oz. container) Curly’s Sauceless Pulled Chicken
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Dried parsley & Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Spread pizza dough out on baking sheet to be approximately 10×16-inches.
  3. In a medium bowl, blend together the cream cheese, hot sauce, and dressing. Spread sauce over 2/3′s of the dough lengthwise, leaving a 3×16-inch rectangle of plain dough along one of the edges. Top sauce with half the cheeses and all of the chicken. Top with remaining cheese.
  4. Brush the plain strip of dough with the egg. Fold in the other sides about an inch and brush them with egg. Roll up like a jelly roll* lengthwise starting along the long edge of dough topped with all the fillings and ending with the plain strip of dough on the bottom of the roll.
  5. Brush the entire stromboli with egg and gently cut slats in the top of the dough every 1-2 inches. Sprinkle parsley and cheese over top and bake 8-10 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and slice into pieces. Serve with more dressing.


*This is where using parchment paper is really handy because you can pick it up to help roll the dough.

P.S. Your method of rolling the dough using parchment paper reminds me of when I made apple strudel from scratch a lifetime ago (back in 1966). For that I had a sheet that covered the table and hung down, and used the sheet, pulling and flipping, to roll the dough. Sheets are more flexible than parchment, but I’ll have to try it with parchment.

My dad swears by sheets for when he makes potica. I think a sheet would work here as well I just don’t have one… yet.

This sounds quite intriguing, though I would have to go easy on the hot sauce (one of the fun parts of aging). I checked out your basic pizza dough recipe, and will have to try it. I’ve pretty much settled on your cornmeal pizza dough as my go-to recipe. Probably should try some others… Seems like I have a whole wheat thin crust pizza dough from you, too. Too many choices!
