Servings: 1 large pizza




  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo Wing Wing Sauce. *Add more sauce for an extra saucy pizza.
  • 1 can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (15 ounces)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese I used vegan cheese.
  • ¼ cup vegan ranch substitute with sour cream, thinned
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach chopped thinly
  • 2 Tbsp green onion chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro optional
  • 2 Tbsp butter I used dairy-free (optional) for the crust


  • In a small bowl mix the warm water and yeast and set aside. The yeast should start to foam after 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to make your water too warm or you can damage (kill) the yeast. * If your yeast doesn’t foam it might not be bad. I recommend dumping it out and trying again.
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, and salt together. Slowly pour the yeast water and 1 Tbsp olive oil with the dry ingredients and mix until a soft dough has formed.
  • Knead dough for 3-5 minutes forming it into a ball. Add an additional tablespoon of water if your dough is too dry.
  • Place the dough in an oiled glass bowl. Cover the dough with a kitchen linen and place in a dark and warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allowing the dough to rise almost doubling in size.
  • Meanwhile, prep your pizza toppings. Combine the chickpeas and buffalo wing sauce in a medium bowl and mix. Chop your fresh spinach and green onion. Set toppings aside.
  • Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F (260 C). Once the dough has risen, punch the dough. Prep your counter for rolling your dough. You can do this by cleaning it or laying a large piece of parchment paper down.
  • Roll out the dough using a rolling pin. If you notice the dough sticking add 1 tsp of flour to the surface. You want to leave the edges of the dough thicker than the middle of the pizza.*see the tip section for more details.
  • Place the rolled out dough with the parchment paper directly on a large baking pan. If you do not have parchment paper spray your pan with oil. Using a fork lightly poke the middle of the dough. This will make sure the dough does not form air bubbles.
  • Top your pizza evenly with mozzarella cheese and chickpeas tossed with buffalo wing sauce. Bake for 7-8 minutes.
  • Take pizza out and add the melted butter on the crust (optional) and bake for an additional 2 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. *You can also turn your oven on broil, watching it very carefully. The pizza can burn very easily with the oven on a broil.
  • Sprinkle with fresh spinach, green onion, and fresh cilantro. Drizzle with vegan ranch and additional buffalo wing sauce.
  • Slice, eat, and enjoy! Leftovers will last in the refrigerator for 3 days wrapped up.
