Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza

Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza

There’s talk of some big game this weekend, I think a football game. I could be wrong since I’m not a fan of football. Kidding of course I don’t live under a rock but the only reason I know is because it’s posted all over and I do tend to watch the half time show, sometimes. While I’m not a fan of football I am a fan of “game day” eats. Nachos, guac, veggies, oh and buffalo cauliflower bites. I like the buffalo flavoring and years ago when I use to go out with friends for wings I would just sit there and dip celery in the buffalo sauce and the blue cheese sauce. Crazy I know but I’ve never been a fan of wings and come to think of it now even sure if I’ve ever tried one. I did use to eat boneless buffalo bites but it’s been at least 8 years.

Anyways since it’s “the year of pizza” I had to whip up a Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza! If you haven’t read about our Family Foodie Dates and this years theme being pizza. We even have cute custom shirts with fun pizza sayings like “Say Cheese”, “In Pizza We Crust”, and “Yeah I’m into fitness, fitness whole pizza in my mouth”! The hubby is too cool to have one, not that I can blame him sequins really aren’t his thing. LOL Not that I would get him a sequin one.

With the theme of this year being pizza I’m guessing our homemade pizza nights might cut down a bit, as they already have so far this year but still we will have them and I’m thinking of trying to keep the pizza recipes to one a month, unless of course readers want more or I get an amazing out of this world one that I just can’t help but share and can’t wait until the next month.

Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza

So to this amazing Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza! It’s packed with so much flavor and texture. Starting with my husband’s easy to make (you just need to prep the dough ahead) Neapolitan Pizza Crust, it’s so puffy and chewy. If you haven’t made it or a Neapolitan crust at home I think this is the year to do it! Top that with Beyond Meat Chickenless Chicken covered in buffalo sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese (Miyoko’s VeganMozz, my personal fav vegan mozzarella cheese), and than because I couldn’t help it chopped celery. As I was eating it I thought I probably should have tried to whip up a dairy free blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing to drizzle over top. I haven’t had the time to play with that idea in the kitchen yet and I was happy with the pizza as it was.

With this “big game” happening this Sunday I’m having a hard time deciding on if I should just whip up buffalo cauliflower, guac, and veggies or go with something more exciting like this pizza (or homemade pizza night) or another favorite… nachos! So many choices!

Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza

 

Vegan Buffalo Chicken Neapolitan Pizza
Makes a 12-14″ pizza*
1 pizza crust (1/4 Homemade Neapolitan Pizza Dough)
1- 9oz bag Beyond Chicken Grilled Strips
1/3c your favorite buffalo hot sauce
3-4oz shredded fresh mozzarella (Miyoko’s Fresh VeganMozz)
1/2 stalk celery, chopped

*I make a 12-14″ pizza with our homemade crust. If you want a thinner crust you can probably go to 16″ or this would still probably work with the same amount of toppings if you are using another 16″ crust.

Make Neapolitan Pizza Crust if using, you will have to make the dough 3 hours, 4 hours is best, ahead of time. It doesn’t take long to make you just have to let it rest and rise.

 

Heat grill or oven, with pizza stone placed inside, to 550F if using my husband’s crust recipe otherwise heat per your pizza crust directions. Toss or roll your pizza dough and place on a piece of parchment paper on a non rimmed baking sheet. Let chicken strips thaw just enough to chop them into bite size pieces. In a large skillet heat buffalo sauce and chicken until just warmed. Carefully spoon the mixture on your pizza crust leaving about a 1/2″ of crust around the edge. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella. Place pizza, keeping it on the parchment as it will easily slide on and off your pizza stone, onto the pizza stone. Check at 6 minutes, the crust should start to be golden brown and cheese is melted. It can take up to 8-10 minutes depending on the temperature of your grill/oven. If using your own crust bake per your crusts instructions. Remove pizza, sliding a baking sheet under the parchment paper. Sprinkle with chopped celery. Enjoy!

  1. We LOVE homemade pizza in our house. At least once a week! I’ve snuck all kinds of crazy toppings into my kids meals. They were willing to give it a try because, you know, pizza!

      We do too and use to have it almost weekly but this year with it being out Family Foodie Date theme I’m guessing we will only do it twice a month. Kids love trying new things when it comes to dishes they love!

  2. I am so hungry right now and this is calling my name! Love the buffalo chicken idea with the strips. Have a great weekend

    I only watch it so I can eat the snacks! My hubby is a football coach, so that’s probably not the right answer, but it’s the truthful one! 🙂 I LOVE those shirts – hilarious! “fitness this whole pizza in my mouth” LOL!!! That’s my kind of exercise right there!

    This is making me need pizza (any kind) incredibly bad! Looks amazing, and I’ve been all about adding vegan dishes into my life. Win!

  5. Cassandra says:

    The BIG game is all about eating! Wings are definitely at the top of our list. This is a great twist on the classic, not-so-good-for-you option.

  6. No idea there was vegan chicken! I literally did a double take on this recipe. WHAT. thanks for sharing!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Yep it’s Beyond Meat, you can find it at Target, Whole Foods, and many other stores. I was going to go cauliflower but it didn’t really work with this pizza.

    My kids would love this. They’re big “buffalo” fans.

    This is perfect for the game tomorrow!! Always a fan on homemade pizza, especially when it looks this good!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Thank you! Yes it would be what we are eating but since we’re having pizza next weekend and had it last weekend we went with nachos.

  9. Esther says:

    Another pizza recipe winner!
    I am not a huge fan of wings myself, but my husband ins!
    He would devour this pizza!

  10. Alexa says:

    I have a handful of vegan friends and this will be right up their alley. Thank you! I can’t tell you how many people have told me to try Miyokos cheeses. I will take your tip and make sure I pick some up to try this week. So who’s in the big game anyway? I DO live under a rock … at least when it comes to football! 🙂

      You could easily make it non vegan as well and keep the same delicious crust and idea. The Miyokos Fresh VeganMozz is my fav. I’m not a fan of all of the other ones and with that one it is best melted not fresh. I wouldn’t be able to tell you whose playing except that my husband has it on right now.

  11. ohhh these flavors, yum!!! I gotta get on making this ASAP

    Hooray for homemade pizza! It looks super good! I need to try making my own buffalo hot sauce and doing this for an upcoming movie night! :]

  13. Ah! This pizza looks SO GOOD! I saw the celery and I was like “is that celery on pizza?!”. Yup, it’s celery. Way to use an under appreciated veggie in an amazing way!
    And pizza t-shirts?? “In Pizza We Crust”, and “Yeah I’m into fitness, fitness whole pizza in my mouth”!
    How cute are you guys? I love it =) Well, as you know, I am a HUGE fan of your pizza creations, so this will make it into our pizza night rotation and I continually appreciate how you have opened my mind up with different flavour combos 😉
    TH=hanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m pinning & sharing.

  14. We totally were on the same page with our buffalo “chicken” eats! “Yeah I’m into fitness, fitness whole pizza in my mouth” really made me laugh – I need that shirt!
