  • 2 Wewalka Classic European Style Pizza dough (14.1 oz )
  • cup Slap Ya Mama Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • Slap Ya Mama Seasoning Hot Blend
  • Velveeta Shreds Mexican cheese (desired amount)
  • Round Biscuit or Cookie cutter to cut out the dough 3 1/2 – 4 inches
  • Boneless/ Skinless Chicken thighs 1.65 lbs
  • Fresh Parsley (garnish, optional)
  • Ranch dressing


  • Set the oven to Broil (500 degrees). Rinse the chicken. Pat dry.Season the chicken with Slap Ya mama hot blend on both sides. Set aside. Add chicken to baking pan.
  • Place the chicken in the oven. Broil for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees. Remove the chicken from the oven. Set aside. Preheat the air fryer.
  • Add 3 chicken thighs to a bowl. Shred with two forks. Add 1/3 cup of Buffalo sauce to the shredded chicken. Stir. Set aside.
  • Unroll the pizza dough on a cutting board. *My recommendation is don’t take the dough out until you are almost ready for it. It’s easier to manage.*Use a round cutter to cut the dough into round pieces. Use a little flour on your hand, this will make it easy to manage dough.
  • Add cheese to one piece of the round dough. Top with shredded chicken about 1/2 tbsp each or more depending on size. Add a little more cheese on top.
  • Add a top piece of dough. Use a fork to pinch the dough together. Repeat until you run out of dough or chicken. Set air fryer on bread setting, 350 degrees for 5 – 6 minutes. Cooking times may vary. Carefully remove from the Air Fryer.
  • Plate the Buffalo chicken & cheese pockets. Drizzle with Ranch Dressing. Add chopped parsley.
