Played? {Buffalo Chik’n Pizza}

Hey friends!


Today for dinner I ate a big bowl of beans and then an even bigger cup of frozen custard. That’s what kind of day it was. The cat put her foot in my glass of water like ten times.


Mark Twain said “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” So to that end, I’m bringing you a pizza. Actually, I made it for my husband.


I know what you’re thinking. Buffalo chicken pizza? Isn’t that kind of old news?

That doesn’t make it less delicious. Anyway, this is how I make buffalo “chicken” pizza.


Start by thinly slicing some onions. I use my mandoline and it takes just a few seconds.


Start cooking the onions over medium heat. Add a little salt to bring out the moisture. When they’re soft, add some sugar.


Caramelize those onions until they’re nice and soft and golden brown.


While the onions are cooking you can make the sauce. It’s a combination of buffalo sauce and ranch dip!


Spread the sauce on the pizza crust and evenly spread the caramelized onions over top.


Next up, add some Quorn tossed with more buffalo sauce.


Top with cheese…and more cheese and bake until hot and bubbly!

Just make sure you share with someone else.

Buffalo Chik’n Pizza

Ingredients:

1 pizza crust (I used thin-crust)
1 sweet yellow onion
1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 package Quorn tenders, thawed
1/4 cup plus 3 Tablespoons Frank’s Buffalo sauce or Thick RedHot sauce (for a spicier pizza)
1/4 cup ranch dip
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Thinly slice onion and toss with grapeseed oil and salt. Slowly caramelize onions over medium-low heat. When onions are soft and translucent, add sugar. Continue cooking until onions are soft and golden brown.
  3. While onions are cooking, prepare sauce by combining ranch dip with 3 Tablespoons of Frank’s.
  4. Toss Quorn tenders with remaining 1/4 cup of Frank’s.
  5. Spread sauce over pizza crust, then top evenly with caramelized onions.
  6. Spoon Quorn tenders onto pizza, then top with both cheeses. (Note: You probably won’t need to use all of the tenders…about 3/4 of the bag should be plenty…and then you have leftovers for a snack later!)
  7. Bake pizza for 8-12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Thought for the day:

Grace isn’t a little prayer you say before receiving a meal; it’s a way of life.

  • My old cat used to dip her paw into anyone’s glass of milk and lick it off her paw. Then she’d get really into it and try to stick her whole face in. It did not fit. Completely hilarious.

    Also, Quorn freaks me out because it’s remarkably similar to real chicken. Bet you can fake people out with it!

      CUTE! My cat never used to care but suddenly she thinks that any glass of water ever sitting out has been poured for her. I guess the rising temps are making her thirsty!
