Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza made with roasted cauliflower and freshly shredded mozzarella cheese. This pizza is a great vegetarian alternative to the usual cheese or veggie pizza.
I’ve been on a major buffalo kick lately. I recently made buffalo chickpea fries and ate them for breakfast for a week. I’ll post the recipe if anyone wants it. I also made buffalo mozzarella quesadillas, buffalo spaghetti, buffalo tortilla pizzas…anything I could put the sauce on.
I didn’t actually see the appeal of buffalo wings for a long time. Entire restaurants exist solely to sell chicken wings dipped in sauce. And people love this. But then I made Buffalo Cauliflower Wings and everything changed.
I can’t explain why buffalo sauce is so amazing. But it is. And this Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza is one of the most delicious ways to eat it. The roasted cauliflower sneaks in a vegetable, but you could substitute it for seitan or vegan chick’n if you wanted a more authentic buffalo chicken pizza.
This pizza is super easy to make. I mean, I guess all pizzas are easy, but that further proves my point. Chop the cauliflower and onion into small pieces and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Roast for 10 minutes.
While the veggies are roasting, shred the cheese and thicken the sauce. Assemble your pizza, bake, and eat. That’s all there is to it.
If you’re an overachiever like me, you can make your own crust. Or you can make life easier and start with a pre-made crust or even buy pizza dough. Whatever floats your boat.
I do highly recommend shredding your own cheese though. Pre-shredded cheese as something weird in it that keeps it from clumping. The weird something makes the mozzarella (and all cheeses, really) taste different. But you could save time by buying pre-shredded cheese. I won’t judge you too much.
