Halifax Wingman Pizza!

As you may already know, I eat my fair share of wings.  I also enjoy pizza, so a while ago I decided to combine the two and made a chicken wing pizza, this may have been one of the best concoctions I’ve ever came up with. 

There have been two successful wingman pizzas created in the past however I never quite got around to posting anything more than a few pictures.  So, for the third time around I decided to share the details in case anyone was interested.

Here is what I used to create this wonderful masterpiece:

- Pizza dough – I went with the Blue Menu Multi-grain Thin crust (the only kind that was in stock from what I noticed).  I’ve never made pizza dough from scratch and I didn’t want to start now.
- Dave’s Famous Chicken Wing Sauce (hot) – this is used for the base of the pizza.  I've also used Frank's Red Hot Thick sauce in the past, this works nicely as well.
- Wings of course – Crisp and Crunchy Spicy Southern-Style baked and then hand picked.
- Maple bacon – What doesn’t bacon go well with?  Enough said.
- Pepperoni – Chris Brothers mild.
- Red and green peppers
- Jalapeno
- Habanero cheese
- Slivered almonds
Ingredients for a wonderful meal
All of this set me back $42.46, not a cheap pizza by any means.  Keep in mind though I still have lots of ingredients left over.

Steps

1. Bake the wings, I used parchment paper and find this stuff really helps to crisp them up.
All cooked and ready to go


2. Once the wings are cooked (and cooled off) you will then want to start ripping the meat off the bone while making sure not to take too many pieces for yourself, running low on wings is not fun.

3. Cook the bacon.  You will want to cook more bacon than you need of course, makes for a great snack while everything else is getting ready.  I choose to crumble a few strips up to use as bacon bits and then cut a few strips in thirds to get good size pieces on the pizza.

3. Cut the pepperoni in to fairly thin slices then fry them up a bit.

4. Cut the red and green peppers in to strips, I used half of each pepper.  Chop up the jalapeno as you normally would for nice little circles of hotness.  And you'll want the green onions in nice little pieces too.

5. Slap a nice layer of Dave’s on the dough, not too much and not too little.

6. Time for the assembly.  Throw on the meat from the wings, peppers, bacon, pepperoni, green onions, a good helping of cheese and top with a few slivered almonds.  The order probably doesn’t matter much here, as long as you start with sauce and end with cheese.

7. Throw the pizza on a pizza pan (I couldn’t imagine the mess this thing would deposit at the bottom of the oven) and cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for around 10 – 15 minutes  and that should be it. 
Ready for the oven

If you ever try this recipe or something along this line, please let me know, I’d love to hear how it turns out for you. Curious what other ingredients may go with this as well, I'm sure there could be a variation of some sort that would also include donair meat in there.
