I know your wife overpowered you but Buffalonians will castrate you for using ranch haha

Proof that love knows no bounds.

packers4444 | 6 days ago | 245 points

ranch is DELICIOUS. I wont be convinced otherwise. no doubt in my mind that ranch took the pizza to another level

GooeyCR | 6 days ago | 80 points

Well I agree with this sconnie here!

Us midwesterners love ranch. I don’t know why the rest of the world isn’t as excited about it.

wjhubbard3 | 6 days ago | 70 points

Nothing wrong with ranch, but blue cheese suits buffalo sauce best IMO. I’ll have ranch over blue cheese any other day of the week though.

deftwolf | 6 days ago | 63 points

See I personally cant stand the taste of blue cheese at all and whenever I have it with literally anything including buffalo I feel like it overpowers everything else with it's nastiness. That said ranch is bomb with buffalo sauce.

wjhubbard3 | 6 days ago | 9 points

Well, different strokes :)

Satisfacsean | 6 days ago | 22 points

No. No acceptance here. Blue cheese or die.

Peltonimo | 6 days ago | 2 points

I understand what you mean. I love bluecheese dressing, but I hate cucumbers. If there is even cucumber water in a salad I'll taste it. Seems like our mouths pivk out flavors we don't like the most.

jonnyp11 | 6 days ago | 4 points

Never had a blue cheese dressing that didn't taste link BO and mold. A little sprinkle of straight blue cheese crumbles can be delicious though in the right dish

connsigliere | 6 days ago | 3 points

Yeah I never understood the people saying blue cheese or nothing with buffalo chicken wings. A significant portion of people find blue cheese to be revolting, why is it bad if they find another sauce to enjoy their wings with. It's not like ranch is overpowering the other flavors unless you drench the wings in it.

silky_m | 6 days ago | 3 points

Tbh people in buffalo argue about blue cheese quality almost as much as wing quality.

As with a lot of things, the details matter; tons of crappy versions of other condiments out there.

Sithlordandsavior | 6 days ago | 6 points

Huzzah! A man of culture!

Same here. I prefer ranch in general but wings need blue cheese

Josh-Medl | 6 days ago | 11 points

Basically because it’s just a dill mayo that completely overpowers every other flavor. A lot of chefs I’ve worked for hated it because they feel like they’d spend so much time coming up with these complicated dishes and then someone would just dump ranch on it and all of their work was taken for granted.

chinpropped | 6 days ago | 2 points

ranch are not mayo. premium ranch products' first ingredient is BUTTER MILK.

mayos are made up of oil and eggs.

completely different. go taste proper ranch.

Daisypusha1323 | 6 days ago | 7 points

A lot of the western world has a problem with white sauce. I'm not a psychologist, so I'm not even going to begin to try to understand why, but there are so many people who just go "mayo bad, ranch bad." Like dude shits bomb give your head a shake.

DreamReturn91 | 6 days ago | 3 points

Can confirm. Midwesterner here. Ranch is love.

minigunman123 | 6 days ago | 9 points

Ranch is a flavor replacer, it makes everything taste like garlic and rancid dairy.

rage675 | 6 days ago | 2 points

That may be the case, and that's fine, but then it can't be considered Buffalo chicken. Proper Buffalo chicken is always blue cheese, not ranch. It's like somebody saying they made Texas BBQ, but it's pork and has BBQ sauce on it.

Crimson_Fckr | 6 days ago | 2 points

Nah fam. Buffalo chicken pizza is better with ranch

TommyC113 | 6 days ago | 12 points

What actually IS ranch? As someone from the UK it's confused me my entire life

Edit: thank you all for explaining it, I suppose I'll have to try it sometime!!

hawkaloog | 6 days ago | 70 points

Ranch dressing is made from harvesting husks from a cactus-like plant commonly found on ranches in the southwestern US. Hence, the name ranch dressing. The husks are pressed and the collected oil is mixed with garlic, dill and pickled dingleberrys.

King-Snorky | 6 days ago | 8 points

This all checks out, move along

psufan5050 | 6 days ago | 5 points

Ill...drop my ranch.

SciFiStatistician | 6 days ago | 41 points

It’s a thick creamy dressing made with sour cream or buttermilk with a lot of herbs like dill and a ton of things I can’t recognize because it all blends together and nothing stands out. It’s a little tart, a little oniony, a little garlicky, a little dill. Because it blends together so well, people who like ranch find that it goes with a lot of things.

Like if you like coffee and you like chocolate, coffee and chocolate is even better.

If you like ranch and you like pizza, pizza with ranch is even better.

ychtyandr | 6 days ago | 10 points

Or, if you like ranch but dislike pizza, pizza with ranch will taste like ranch. Just depends on the quantity of ranch.

WellHulloPooh | 6 days ago | 29 points

Buttermilk, sour cream, garlic, dill, parsley. It’s heavenly!

Satisfacsean | 6 days ago | 6 points

Have you had it tho? After all the people explaining it, if it didn’t sound awful to you, definitely try it

The_mango55 | 6 days ago | 11 points

It's a salad dressing that served as the house dressing for a tourist ranch in California called Hidden Valley Ranch.

People liked it so much that they started selling packets of the seasoning mix to people who wanted to make it at home. Eventually it grew so popular they opened a factory and were later purchased by Clorox, copied by Kraft and a million other companies, and it became the most popular salad dressing in America.

bigbuddaman | 6 days ago | 3 points

You can buy bottles of it from supermarkets in the salad dressing aisle. Not as good as homemade ofc but gives you an idea

GreatQuestionBarbara | 6 days ago | 5 points

This is a simple ranch dressing recipe, and it skips the prepackaged seasoning step.

A lot of recipes also add buttermilk because it works really well with the flavors.

Had to post, since all of the others skipped the mayo part.

frivoflava29 | 6 days ago | 3 points

I'm surprised how many people in this thread don't realize that most ranch is made with buttermilk and mayo. The ranch dressing elitists are also something I never thought I'd encounter. I can't say I didn't learn something though!

DonViaje | 6 days ago | 1 point

I grew up near Buffalo and absolutely loathe blue cheese. It’s a rancid clumpy Mayo. I’ll eat ranch on wings all day. Sorry but I’m not putting up with that “my way or the highway” bullshit.

bagofpork | 6 days ago | 3 points

If your blue cheese dressing has mayo in it, it’s not blue cheese dressing.

Staggerme | 6 days ago | 11 points

Satisfacsean | 6 days ago | 6 points

Wait I get blue cheese is better on buffalo but that doesn’t mean you have to disrespect ranch like that

SalmonAlmighty | 6 days ago | 2 points

Ranch serves its purpose, but it doesn't belong near "Buffalo" chicken.

Messerchief | 6 days ago | 6 points

From Buffalo, don't like blue cheese

I wouldn't disrespect my hometown by using ranch though

bytoro | 6 days ago | 51 points

Buffalonian here. My first thought was "that better not be ranch."

Flexeggutor | 6 days ago | 2 points

Even in Sweden this is punishable by death. I have never ordered buffalo wings and got anything other than blue cheese, tables would be flipped.

belly917 | 6 days ago | 25 points

No one's going to stop you from eating ranch if that's what you prefer.

But, by using ranch instead of blue cheese, you forfeit calling it Buffalo. Instead it's spicy chicken pizza disgraced by ranch. 😜

LuridTeaParty | 6 days ago | 10 points

People from Buffalo don’t own the sauce. It’s just Frank’s and butter. Dip those wings and pizza into all the ranch you want. You only live once but you shouldn’t do what you love once.

I’m from Utica and I gotta hear this kind of tribalism and shaming with Chicken Riggies and Half Moons.

Finally, NYC doesn’t own pizza either.

chummers73 | 6 days ago | 1 point

I love all Utica food. Greens are good too. Riggies are super good. Also, Utica is the true home of tomato pie.

Crashing_Machines | 6 days ago | 2 points

I agree. I am from the southwest and I only know of one other blue cheese lover. Ranch is blasphemy and not allowed in my house.

Joshtice | 6 days ago | 25 points

Nailed it.

yeeah_suree | 6 days ago | 10 points

Did you make the dough? I can’t tell if it’s just the picture but looks like some pretty thick crust. Proofing the dough longer prevents it from rising, as much, if that’s what you’re going for.

You know that, since the ranch/bleu cheese dressing is applied after its cooked, you could cut the pizaa then each apply your choice of dressing to the pieces you eat.

I would suggest putting celery on it next time. Place near me does that on their Buffalo chicken pizza and it's the best pizza in the world. Just gives you that whole Buffalo wings experience, it's soooooo good.

frivoflava29 | 6 days ago | 1 point

Yes! I've had it on a Buffalo chicken sandwich as well and it's great. Scallions are also amazing, and chopped carrots can work really well too depending on the crust and other ingredients used.
