Buffalo Chickpea Sweet Potato Pizza

The taste of buffalo wings and pizza brought together – only healthier and meatless!

A couple of weeks ago I shared my recipe for Vegan BBQ Chickpea Sweet Potato Pizza, and today I want to share that same sweet potato pizza crust BUT add a buffalo twist to the whole thing. You can find my past post for my Sweet Potato Pizza Crust here.

I have talked about my love for sweet potatoes, but what is there NOT to love?!? Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a very good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.  Vitamin C is important to help ward off cold and flu viruses, but also that this crucial vitamin plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation. It helps accelerate wound healing, produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essential to helping us cope with stress!  Again, what’s not to love about this potato?!?

My planting eating husband loves this recipe!  The sweet potato pizza crust and spicy buffalo chickpea topping work amazing together – then topping it with a white sauce!  Off the chart!

There are days I want a true traditional pizza, but most of the time it’s this darn pizza that my taste buds scream for!

Poppy - Cavalier King Charles

Poppy – Cavalier King Charles

One of my passions (besides cooking an barre class) is fostering puppy mill dogs, mainly Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.  I did buy my first Cavalier from local breeder before I knew puppy mill’s existed and how horrible they were.  When we stared looking for another Cavalier I had no idea there were actually rescues for these wonderful dogs!

Now our first adopted Cavalier did not come from a mill, but from her owner who could no longer take care of her…she has LOTS of energy and is way too smart!

Our first two Cavalier foster pups came straight from a mill.  The transport (a piece of crap van) showed up in front of a local mall and handed over the dogs.  Why in front of the mall? They were delivering dogs to the pet store there at the mall.  Fact – when some dogs aren’t wanted by the pet store, they try pawning them off to the rescues picking up.  It’s a disgusting business.

Everything changed at that moment for me.

I wanted to help more Cavaliers!!  I was hooked and have now fostered over 20+ Cavaliers in the 4 or 5 years.  Most are mill survivors who have been way over breed or dogs that have health issues.

This weekend we picked up an adorable 5 year old mill momma named Poppy!

We don’t know too much about Poppy’s history, which is normal.  Normally we just have a birth date and that’s about it.  Everything is so new and exciting when they come into a home.  Learning to potty outside, that ceiling fans are not scary, it’s fun to sleep in a big bed and there are lots of yummy things in the kitchen!

Once Poppy has been spayed, teeth cleaned and receives her shots we will start looking for her perfect family. The time she spends with us will help us better understand what type of family will be best for her.

Our past foster dogs – have better lives than we do!  LOL! One is a jet setter, one has been in children’s books, one lives in wine country….the list goes on and on! At the end of the day – they all deserve the best furever homes possible!

Please if you are thinking of adding a dog (or any animal) to your family – adopt don’t shop.

Stay tuned on updates on how Poppy is doing and adjust to the life a Cavalier deserves…as I type this she’s snoring up a storm!

Stay healthy!
