This buffalo chickpea pizza was waiting to be edited and posted. This Pizza is based on the Buffalo chikun Pizza from Pizza Pi in Seattle. The spicy tangy Buffalo sauce, a generous amount of white garlic sauce and celery ranch sauce and oh my, It is so good!
If you have the pizza dough ready, then this Pizza is a breeze to put together too. Mix up the buffalo sauce and chickpeas, make the blender sauces. Layer them all up, Bake and serve. Vegan, palm oil free and soy free! Easily gluten-free with my gf crusts. btw buffalo sauce has nothing to do with the animal Buffalo but everything to do with the location it was created at, Buffalo, NY.
