Prep: 35 minutes
Bake: 25 minutes • Serves: 8

1envelope (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1tablespoon Honey Bear Farms Squeeze Pure Natural Honey
1tablespoon olive oil
2cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting
1cup whole wheat flour
2cups cauliflower florets
1 1/2cups shredded chicken breast meat (from 1 Busch’s Rotisserie Chicken)
1/4cup plus 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper hot sauce, divided
1cup shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4cup thinly sliced Organic Celery Hearts
1/4cup yogurt-based ranch dressing

1. In large bowl, whisk yeast, honey, oil and 1 cup warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Gradually add flours to yeast mixture, stirring after each addition until incorporated.

2. Spray second large bowl with cooking spray. On lightly floured work surface, knead dough 3 minutes or until smooth and elastic; transfer to prepared bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand 1 hour or until doubled in size.

3. Preheat oven to 450°. Spray 2 rimmed baking pans with cooking spray. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces; roll each into a 10-inch circle and transfer to prepared pans. Poke dough circles all over with fork; bake 5 minutes or until very lightly browned.

4. In large bowl, toss cauliflower, chicken and 2 tablespoons hot sauce. Brush pizza crusts with remaining 1/4 cup hot sauce; top with cheese, cauliflower mixture and onion. Tightly wrap pizzas with plastic wrap, then foil; freeze up to 3 months.

5. Preheat oven to 425°. Unwrap pizzas; bake directly on oven rack from frozen 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese melts. Sprinkle pizzas with celery; drizzle with dressing. Cut each pizza into 8 pieces to serve.

Chef Tip:
> Store bought pizza dough can be used in place of making your own dough. Just thaw and par-bake dough, like in this recipe, before topping and freezing. For a vegetarian option, replace chicken with an additional 1½ cups cauliflower florets.
