Buffalo Wing Pizza Roll-ups

These were so yummy. I made them more like a calzone than a roll-up...but you get the picture.
Buffalo Wing Pizza Roll-ups

From: The Food Network

Pizza Dough (I make my own, but you can buy it or use the recipe the Food Network suggests on their site)

Pizza topping:
 2 Tbs. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 med. onions, chopped
1 Tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup (16-ounce can) diced tomatoes or chunky tomato sauce
 1/4 cup instant flour,(you can substitute regular flour or better yet, cake flour)
1 lb. ground chicken (I just used ground turkey, because I couldn't find ground chicken.  I bet you could also just use a chicken breast and shred it up.)
3 oz. blue cheese
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1 (6-oz.) container plain yogurt

Heat 1 Tbs. of the oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan and saute garlic and onions until they begin to soften. Add parsley, salt, and tomatoes.  Cook for about 20 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Begin the chicken as described below, while the sauce is cooking.  Remove from heat and whisk in the instant flour to thicken. Mix with an immersion blender, then set aside briefly.

While the sauce is cooking, in a separate frying pan, heat 1 Tbs. of olive oil over medium high heat, and brown the ground chicken, breaking up the pieces as it cooks. When the ground chicken has browned, remove from heat, crumble in blue cheese and stir in buffalo wing sauce and yogurt. Fold this mixture into the tomato sauce. If the mix is absolutely too runny for a pizza topping, add more instant flour.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Divide the dough in half and stretch out (2) 14 inch circles. Transfer them to pizza stones sprinkled with cornmeal. Top with the buffalo chicken pizza topping. Roll up and seal ends. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the dough is nicely browned.
