Buffalo Chicken Pizza with Carrot + Celery Crust (Gluten-Free)

60 minutes

serves 1

After doing many episodes of Skyler Swap, I decided to ask what you guys wanted to see me making in the next round of episodes. A lot of you said you wanted to see a buffalo chicken dip or pizza, so I decided to make pizza because, let’s face it, I’m a pizza lover. I’m really proud of how this recipe turned out because I think making buffalo chicken “healthy” or “wholesome” is pretty challenging. The first swap I made is the crust — I got rid of refined flour and decided to make a carrot and celery crust, because those are the two most popular side dishes served with buffalo wings. Then, I swap out the heavy buffalo sauce and blue cheese dressing with hot sauce, and a lighter blue cheese Greek yogurt dressing that you can make yourself. I also incorporated hard mozzarella cheese into the crust of the pizza and in the toppings in order to give that cheesy, pizza-like finish, even though this is a Skinny Swap. I think there’s a common misconception that cheese is bad for you, but I don’t think small amounts are. If I want cheese, there really is nothing like it to substitute, so I damn well eat cheese because it makes me happy and I am not lactose intolerant.

Enjoy this recipe and let me know if you end up making it!
