For dine-in, Pizza Hut wings can compliment a hand tossed traditional pizza, or can be enjoyed as a primary entree. The Pizza Hut wings are available in multiple flavors and varieties. The standard buffalo wings on the menu are bone-in wings that are topped with a hot sauce. Unlike some buffalo wings, the Pizza Hut wings recipe does not use any breading.[1] The secret to achieving great copycat Pizza Hut wings is to select small, fresh wings that offer a better taste and less fat than bigger drummets. Pizza Hut wings can be served as an appetizer, a game day treat or as a main dish. Pizza Hut wings are messy, so be sure to provide plenty of napkins.

The benefit of making Pizza Hut wings at home is the ability to adjust the recipe based on flavor and spice level preferences. A standard hot sauce like Frank's RedHot Cayenne pepper sauce is a close match to the sauce used by Pizza Hut, but any red chili sauce will work. Traditionally, buffalo wings are served with a dipping sauce like blue cheese or ranch. Making these sauces from scratch is an option, or you can use Marie's Dressings or some Kraft varieties. If you enjoy really spicy wings, add some cayenne pepper to the hot sauce you select.
