Last night I made the mistake of playing a clip from the movie Frozen to my kids on YouTube. They watched it on repeat for probably 15-20 minutes and of course I kind of totally enjoyed it the entire time. Because, quite frankly… it’s the best Disney movie ever and that’s saying a lot. I’ve seen a ton of Disney movies in my many years on this earth. This one tops them all. It has a great message, amazing music and if you happen to see it in 3-D… great effects. If you haven’t seen it yet, do it. Of course I’m seriously tempted to go and see it again in theaters before it’s released on DVD in March. I might be able to resist the urge if I just buy the soundtrack. Is it weird that a grown adult is this excited and in love with a PG (yep almost said G but I checked) rated movie?

In other movie news, we watched the Lone Ranger over the weekend. I was expecting something entirely different. It said intense action, violence and suggestive material. That made me assume it was more like a war movie than it was. I was fully expecting some boring western movie. Boy was I wrong. Typical Johnny Depp all around. If you love his movies, then you’ll enjoy this one.

Now let’s talk pizza. A week from now, millions will be glued to the TV enjoying either grown men tossing around a ball and tackling each other, what we all hope are funny commercials, food or music. Part of that food will be pizza and I hope instead of ordering out, you’ll make this ridiculously easy and tasty pizza at home. you can even trick your family and friends into eating slightly healthier by using a homemade whole wheat crust. It’s a great way to switch things up while still enjoying a favorite food.

I shared a buffalo chicken pizza years ago but wanted to share an updated version. So here you have a loaded buffalo chicken pizza on whole wheat crust featuring creamy dressing and blue cheese crumbles topped off with shredded seasoned buffalo chicken, onions and the ever important whole milk mozzarella. Don’t forget that sprinkle of pepper, it’s a must. Trust me, you’ll forget every buffalo chicken pizza you’ve ever had after trying this one.

Whip this up for your Super Bowl party, or any pizza night! It’s easy and full of amazing flavor.

    Is it crazy that I just made the same exact pizza but instead of using blue cheese I used ranch and white crust! They look very similar! I am hooked!!

    • Rachel — January 27th, 2014 @ 1:30 pm

      It’s funny how people seem to be either for blue cheese or ranch but rarely both.

    I’m totally drooling over this pizza. I don’t watch football, but I’d love a slice with an episode of Mad Men.

    • Rachel — January 27th, 2014 @ 1:31 pm

      Right? Forget the game. Time to dig in. ;)

    I need to see Frozen…I keep hearing how good this one was! And yes, The Lone Ranger was better than I expected! Now this pizza…gorgeous! Although I have to admit I am team ranch here. But I’m totally loving the whole wheat crust option with this!

    • Rachel — January 30th, 2014 @ 7:39 am

      You really do!! It’s such an adorable movie. We might even be going back to see the sing along version.

    Hi Rachel, thanks so much for sharing! Not a big blue cheese fan, any recommendation for a good substitute? Will be trying this out this week. :)

    • Rachel — February 24th, 2014 @ 2:25 pm

      While less traditional, I’ve heard many use ranch in place of blue cheese for buffalo recipes.
