About This Leeky Chicken Pizza Recipe
While visiting Vermont this summer, my sister-in-law told us about a pizza from Folino's in Burlington called the "Leeky Chicken". After trying a gluten-free version of it, I vowed to come up with an equally tasty gluten-free version I could have at home!
Using one of my go-to frozen pizza crusts (Ugly's Gluten-Free, local to Massachusetts), I decided to make it happen!
Ingredients You Will Need
The ingredients for the Leeky Chicken on Folino's website are listed as:
olive oil base, three cheese blend, buffalo chicken, leeks, bacon, ranch. And that's exactly what you'll need!
-Cheeses (I use a blend of mostly Colby or Monterey Jack)
-Buffalo Chicken (I used pre-cooked chicken breast tossed with Frank's)
-Ranch Dressing (I like Ken's, labeled gluten-free)
And of course, you need a gluten-free pizza crust!
Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
I prefer Ugly's Gluten-Free or Zeia Foods, both local to New England and 100% gluten-free. You could also try Trader Joe's gluten-free pizza dough, Schar gluten-free pizza dough, or for a fantastic homemade option - try making pizza from scratch with No Gluten, No Problem! (You can read my full review of their cookbook right here.)
How To Make Leeky Chicken Pizza
Follow the directions according to your pizza crust for how to prepare it. Add the olive oil for the base, the cheese, followed by the leeks, buffalo chicken, and bacon, and then drizzle the ranch on top. Delish! You get the spice from the buffalo chicken, creaminess of the ranch, and cheesy and oniony goodness with the cheese and leeks.
And then there's bacon. Need I say more?
I'll share more details on how to put it together in the recipe notes below. And if you're looking for another wild pizza combo, check out this chicken bacon ranch pizza - a twist on a Subway sandwich in pizza form!
