Full Metal Buffalo!

I have needs... Needs for air, water, sleep and occasionally PIZZA! In my never ending battle against my fatitude, I try to have pizza from time to time and have it not be a diet disaster.  It's a challenge and one of my never ending quests.

So for one of my assignments as an Allrecipes Allstar this month was to cook with bison. I received bison pepperoni and all I could think about was "This needs to go on a pizza."  This weekend, I had time and decided to give it a whirl.

A few weeks ago I was at Cost Plus and I ran across these pizza crusts by Pastorelli Foods

They looked good and a 160 calories each, better than regular crust and nice and thin the way I like my crust.  I've tried pita bread, and tortillas as crusts and haven't been thrilled with them.. was hoping for a winner. So I whipped up a quick pizza sauce with canned tomatoes, onions, garlic, and Italian seasonings, pureed it up, preheated the oven to 400 and was ready to go.

Here is the crust.. nice and thin, huh?

And then I topped it with some homemade sauce

Then the bison pepperoni

I wanted to get the full buffalo experience so I decided to top this with buffalo mozzarella. I've never cooked with this nor eaten it so this was another adventure

Here it is all ready to go in the oven

I baked it for about 10 minutes, right on the oven rack at 400 degrees. I topped with some chopped fresh basil and then tadaaaaaaaa

Dinner was delicious and I'll definitely make this again



  1. That looks good enough to eat! I love buffalo mozzarella. And those crusts make a nice size personal pizza. I will need to see if I can find them around here.

  2. Mmmmmm....Got me hungry for bison pizza now!

  3. Wow - this pizza looks really good. Nice job!
