People have been asking about a healthier version of a pizza, so I decided to cross Buffalo Chicken with my Basic Cauliflower Crust. This Loaded Buffalo Chicken Pizza is delicious!

Start with the very easy Basic Cauliflower Crust. A low-carb and gluten-free way to enjoy pizza…

Loaded Buffalo Chicken PizzaCauliflower Crust

Recipe by: Annessa Chumbley
Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, rinsed and dried
  • 1/2 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. In a food processor, add the florets from that cauliflower. You should have about 5 cups of florets in all. Pulse several times until you get a “cauliflower snow” consistency.
  2. Pour those cauliflower crumbles into a microwave-safe bowl. Cover it with a paper towel, and microwave on high for 4 minutes.
  3. Let it cool slightly (or put it in the freezer for 5 minutes to cool). Then pour those crumbles onto a clean, dry, dish towel. Twist the dishtowel so that you squeeze all the liquid out of that cauliflower snow!
  4. Add the cauliflower to a bowl along with the Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic powder, egg, and kosher salt. Mix together well. The mixture will form a dough.
  5. Place the dough on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Using your fingertips (this is really easy actually), shape the dough into a pizza crust (not too thin in the middle or it won’t hold together). Make the dough a little thicker on the edges to act as a true pizza crust
  6. Bake at 415º for 12 – 14 minutes. Remove, add whatever toppings you desire, and put back into the oven just until the toppings are warmed and any cheese you added is melted. Remove, slice and carefully serve! The crust should hold together well, but it still requires careful transport. Enjoy!

Notes: Cauliflower pizza dough can be made the night before and baked the next day easily. Leftovers are delicious!

For the Buffalo Chicken Pizza, I use rotisserie chicken for convenience and to save time. If you have some chicken left over from another recipe that you could use. Splash that chicken with Frank’s hot sauce, and then top it on the pizza. If you wanted to add shredded mozzarella cheese, sprinkle it over the chicken, and then put it back in the oven for a few minutes to melt…
