Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza


Before I became a vegetarian I used to love whenever someone served buffalo chicken pizza because it was a nice variety from pizza with marinara sauce and cheese. Now that I'm a vegetarian this pizza is a great way to have that same texture and great taste for less calories than the real buffalo chicken pizza.

This recipe for Buffalo "Wing" Style Cauliflower inspired this idea.

Other buffalo cauliflower recipes: Buffalo "Wing" Style Cauliflower and Buffalo Cauliflower Wrap.

Ingredients:
-Pizza crust (tortilla, pita bread, pizza crust -- whatever you have)
-Mozzarella Cheese
-Buffalo Sauce
-Ranch or Blue Cheese

Buffalo Cauliflower (you can find the instructions here)
-1 head cauliflower, cleaned and cut into bite-sized pieces
-1 cup buttermilk
-1 cup all-purpose flour
-2 teaspoons garlic salt
-1 cup buffalo sauce-1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Generously top your dough with buffalo sauce, I used a pita because that's what I had on hand.
Add all of the toppings.
I put two layers of cheese and cauliflower.
Bake 10 minutes at 350.
You can cook yours for less if you'd like as you can see mine got a little crispy.
Drizzle with ranch...
or blue cheese and serve.

This recipe was delicious, the perfect way to eat buffalo cauliflower. This is also a great alternative to buffalo chicken pizza according to CalorieKing.com a cup of cauliflower will be around 27 calories compared to a cup of chicken without the skin which would be around 231 calories. Now I know that ranch and crust and buffalo sauce aren't fantastic for a person either, but the difference between 27 calories and 231 calories is staggering!

If you're craving buffalo chicken pizza I suggest trying this recipe out.
