Ingredients

For the buffalo chickpea pizza

  • ¼ cup (60 ml plus 2 tablespoons) tomato sauce - $0.15
  • ½ cup buffalo sauce Frank’s, or more to taste - $0.82
  • 3 tablespoons soy yogurt - $0.38
  • 1 pizza crust homemade or store bought - $0.44
  • 1 ½ cups (255 grams) cooked chickpeas - $0.23
  • ¼ small red onion thinly sliced - $0.09
  • A small handful chopped cilantro - $0.10
  • 1 green onion chopped - $0.07

For the vegan ranch (or use store bought)

  • ½ cup (120 ml) soy yogurt - $1.00
  • ½ teaspoon salt - $0.01
  • ½ teaspoon chopped parsley - $0.01
  • ½ teaspoon chopped chives - $0.03
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill - $0.10
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder - $0.08
  • ¾ teaspoon onion flakes or powder - $0.08
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons plant milk - $0.04

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 475°F (250°C)
  • Combine the tomato sauce, buffalo sauce and soy yogurt in a small pan over medium-low heat. Simmer gently, stirring from time to time, until slightly thickened – about 10 minutes.
  • Stretch your pizza dough out over a greased baking pan or pizza pan. I like a thinner crust in order to add some crispy texture as the chickpeas are soft but it’s up to you how you like your crust.
  • Spoon 3 tablespoons of the buffalo tomato sauce over the pizza dough. Add the chickpeas to the remaining sauce in the pan and stir to coat.
  • Spread the chickpeas out over the pizza crust and top with the sliced red onion (and any other veggies you like). Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the crust is done.
  • Meanwhile make the vegan ranch by combining all the ingredients. Add as much milk as necessary to make it a pourable consistency.
  • Once the pizza is out of the oven sprinkle over the cilantro and green onion and drizzle over the ranch.
