- Chop the cauliflower into bite sized pieces
- Combine the unsweetened plant milk, all purpose flour, paprika, pepper, and garlic salt to make the batter.
- Dip each cauliflower piece into the batter. Tap off any excess batter before placing it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake in the oven at 350 ° F for 15-20 minutes
- In the meantime, create the buffalo sauce by mixing together the butter (melt in the microwave first) and Frank's hot sauce
- Once the cauliflower is slightly brown and crispy take out of the oven and toss in the buffalo sauce. Mix until each cauliflower piece is well coated.
- Next, make the tahini ranch. Combine all the ranch ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Assemble the pizza. Spread an even layer of the tahini ranch on the pizza crust (save some for later). Then top with the buffalo cauliflower bites.
- Place back in the oven at 350 ° F for another 15-20 minutes
- Finish by topping your pizza with fresh arugula, chopped green onion, and a drizzle of the leftover tahini ranch.
- I recommend tasting the buffalo sauce mixture before combining it with the cauliflower. Make sure it is spicy enough for your liking, and free to add more hot sauce or mess around with these measurements in general!
