Guys, do you remember finals week in college? You know, where you had 3 papers, 4 finals, 2 presentations and a speech due all in the same 3 days and you were so stressed you could explode? Where your eyeballs were so red, puffy and glazed over your friends thought you were coming off a bender? Yeah, so that’s what my week is like right now. I’m so stressed and overwhelmed I could set myself on fire. Hence the lack of posts. But, I have something awesome for you today. This buffalo chicken cauliflower pizza is perfect for your Super Bowl activities.
This was my first time making a cauliflower crust and I must say, I dug it. It was definitely not a regular pizza crust, but it was still so flavorful and crispy. You get all of that earthy, hearty flavor and texture from cauliflower but in a very underwhelming way. Probably because all I could taste was the buffalo chicken and gooey mozzarella. You can top cauliflower crust with whatever your heart desires. I’m in a serious relationship with buffalo chicken, though, so he got first dibs.
They key to a crispy crust is to make sure you spread it out as thin as you can without breaking it. If you try to make a thicker dough, the cauliflower won’t crisp and you’ll be left with pizza toppings on mashed cauliflower. Which is still edible, but definitely not ideal. Especially if you’re trying to trick your husband and his friends to eat it because it’s healthier.
My husband didn’t fall for the ploy. “I can taste the cauliflower, WAHHHHHHH.” Which I promptly responded “FINE! MORE FOR ME!” And then I shoveled the entire pizza into my mouth. It wasn’t the most mature, adult or healthy moment of my life, but alas, we all have those right? However, all that buffalo gave me some seirous night sweats and even weirder dreams. Let’s just say they involved Adam Richman and a squid. I won’t divulge further.
