This awesome Buffalo wing-inspired twist on pizza will have you forgetting all about plain old pepperoni and cheese. Crunchy pieces of Buffalo-baked cauliflower paired with a blue cheese-infused white pizza sauce is the pizza combination you didn’t know you needed.

More About This Recipe

  • In the 1950s and early 1960s my mother made chicken wings brushed in lemon-butter. In the mid 1960s, I began cooking as a girl scout to earn my cooking badge, and a few years later in my junior high school home economics class, we used Pillsbury™ doughs in many dishes from appetizers to desserts. Also in the mid 1960s, Buffalo wings and hot pepper sauces emerged. I loved the new peppery, sauced wings, and they became a family and party favorite. My mother made a delicious homemade blue cheese dressing to complement the hot and tangy flavor of the wings, and sliced up celery sticks to cool down the dish while also garnishing the party platter. When the platter was nearly bare, I would mop up the remnants of wing sauce and blue cheese dressing with a piece of crusty bread. Today, when cauliflower has become a widely versatile substitute ingredient in many recipes, I was inspired to create a pizza that combines elements of the Buffalo wings my family loves with mom’s memorable blue cheese turned into a white pizza sauce. I replaced the chicken with cauliflower and baked it all on Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust. It gets garnished with a fresh and cool crunch of sliced celery on top. This is a timeless recipe, with a current variation on a popular theme, reflecting decades of family food memories.
