I know I know Monday’s recipe was all sauced up with buffalo sauce too. But YOU GUYS, I’m addicted. I can’t stop putting it on everything. I’m blaming these wings from the Super Bowl for being too delicious and giving me a constant craving for anything buffalo. Please don’t hate me which I’m sure you couldn’t after seeing today’s buffalo chicken pizza.
I’m the type of person that when I make a recipe that I love I’ll make it 2 or 3 times a week for a few weeks and then never make it again. Is anyone else like that? But back to this pizza…
Why yes that is all sorts of goodness piled on top of a cauliflower crust and baked until golden perfection. There’s no cheese on this pizza creation but you can totally add blue cheese and it would be fantastic. That’s if you tolerate cheese well. Bacon, chicken, peppers, jalapeños, Fresno chiles, red onions, and mushrooms complete the topping list. The sauce is a mix of butter and franks red hot buffalo sauce. It’s the perfect level of spicy but if you’re a heat freak like I am add as many jalapeños or chiles as your little heart desires.
Now I’m off to drench my breakfast in buffalo sauce. Someone please stop me!
