Not traditional pizza and wings but something a little different. You know me and my need to make everything just a little different :).
I finally tried cauliflower pizza crust again! I had tried it a few months ago and it definitely wasn't anything that you could pick up and eat with your hands. This recipe was much better! I basically used this recipe from Detoxinista for the pizza crust but instead of soft goat cheese, I used 1 cup of shredded mozzarella. Spoiler alert: The secret to a great cauliflower pizza crust is squeezing ALL the liquid out of the cooked cauliflower!! I will definitely be making cauliflower pizza crust again!
The wings... oh the wings... mmmm...
You have probably heard me say many times that the food that I craved ALL.THE.TIME during my pregnancy with Claire was Applebee's boneless buffalo wings. Thankfully I didn't burn myself out on the perfect spiciness of buffalo sauce and still love the tangy heat!
When I saw this recipe at Clean Green Simple for Cauliflower Buffalo Wings I knew that I had to try it! I have made this a few times and have adapted the recipe quite a bit to make it just how I like it! This recipe is awesome... no need for Applebee's wings again!
Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1 cup water
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 5 Tbsp Frank's Red Hot sauce

- Combine flour, water, and a few dashes of the Frank's
- Dip all cauliflower pieces into the batter and place onto a baking stone or sheet
- Bake for 20 minutes, stir, bake for another 20 minutes, stir, bake for another 10-15 minutes until desired doneness is reached
- While cauliflower is cooking, combine melted butter with hot sauce
- Remove cauliflower from oven and brush each piece with sauce mixture
- Return to oven and cook for another 5-10 minutes
- Remove from oven and brush with a little more of the sauce mixture
- Serve and enjoy!
1. I prefer my cauliflower to be really well done so that it is soft on the inside. The extra cooking time makes these taste more like wings and less like cauliflower. Feel free to cut the cooking time down a bit if you prefer it less well done!
2. You will probably have sauce mixture left over, store it in the fridge and make more buffalo cauliflower later on in the week!
