  • 5 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Frank's RedHot, divided
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place cauliflower and garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on High for 3 minutes. Let cool slightly. Stir in eggs, mozzarella, carrot, 2 tablespoons chives and salt. Spread the mixture into a 12-inch circle, ¼ inch thick, on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the cauliflower crust until brown and crispy around the edges, 35 to 40 minutes.
  4. Combine chicken, 1 tablespoon hot sauce, vinegar and cayenne in a small bowl. Remove the crust from the oven and top with the chicken and blue cheese. Return to the oven and bake until the chicken is warm and the cheese is starting to melt, about 5 minutes more. Top with celery and the remaining 1 tablespoon each chives and hot sauce.

My crust was glued to the parchment paper. Not sure what happened there. However, after I used kitchen shears to cut a slice and scraped the crust off the paper, I did enjoy the flavor. Will try again.

Absolutely fantastic. The crust was so satisfying. I couldn’t believe it was cauliflower, and the Buffalo flavor outstanding. I used Louisiana hot sauce.

I wasn't expecting to like this, but I ended up loving it. So did my 17 year old teenage son who went back for seconds. The crust does not hold up like a standard bread crust pizza would, but the flavors of the buffalo chicken and blue cheese carried the dish. I will be making this again.
