Of course you can use any type of ingredients you would like, but here is picture of the brands that I used this.
Also…this cauliflower crust is L I F E & it is two crusts for $6.99 at Publix.

Directions:

For the chicken:

Before assembling the pizza, the chicken MUST be cooked FIRST. With
this recipe, I chose to use the crockpot, but you can use the stove, oven, or even the grill…whichever you prefer.

  1. Cut and clean the chicken. For this recipe you really only need 1-2 chicken breasts, but I used more for meal prep for the week.
  2. Add chicken to the crockpot.
  3. Add 1/2 can of chicken broth to the crockpot.
  4. Add 1 pack of ranch seasoning to the crockpot.
  5. Add 1 cup of buffalo wing sauce to the crockpot.
  6. Mix all the ingredients together.
  7. Cook on high for 4.5 hours OR low for 8 hours.
  8. Shred chicken.
Shredded chicken.

Rest of the pizza:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Put the cauliflower crust on a cooking sheet and spray with a little bit of cooking spray.
  3. Allow the crust to roast for five minutes.
  4. Take the crust out of the oven and cover with the buffalo hummus (3 tablespoons), cheese (1/4 cup), red onion, banana peppers, and chicken.
  5. Allow pizza to cook for 13-15 minutes.
  6. Broil for one minute if you are feeling the crispy.

Step 1:

Remove the crust from the oven and top with buffalo hummus.

Step 2:

Added cheese.

Step 3:

Added chicken.

Step 4:

Red onion and banana peppers.

Step 5:

Pizza is ready for the oven!

Step 6:

Finished product!

Step 7:

The aftermath!

Smartpoints:

1/3 of the crust is 5 smart points.

Cheese for the entire pizza was counted as 2 points.

Buffalo Hummus for the entire pizza was counted as 4 points.

Everything else was ZERO!

We split this pizza in half and I tracked it as 11 point total.

And so it begins…

Here is the quick 411 on me!

First off…my name is Taylor and I am 28 years old living in sunny and H O T Florida! I am a fifth grade teacher and enjoy meal prepping and cooking at nights and on the weekends!

I have been doing WW (formally known as Weight Watchers) off and on for what seems like forever, but in reality probably only a few years.

But here lately, I have been creating recipes that are low in points, easy to make, and taste delicious so I thought why not put those recipes out into the universe and maybe someone else can benefit from them as well.

Why am I doing this?

  • To show people that following a recipe can be so simple and only a few steps with a few ingredients because who likes to go spend a bunch of money on an ingredient they will never use again?
  • To motivate new WW members, lifelong WW members, or really just anyone who need a fresh new lens at some simple recipes.
  • To give point friendly and health friendly recipes that are seasoned well and taste delicious.
  • To show step by step directions and examples of the process.
