Buffalo Chickpea Veggie Pizza

I’ve talked many times about my love affair with Franks Hot Sauce.  It literally makes my world go round!

Buffalo chickpeas are something I make often–I stuff them in pitas or top on salads. But in this recipe, they are the star of a better-than-a-restaraunt vegan pizza. So, so good.

You could put any variety of your favorite veggies on the pizza, but I’ll share what I love.
