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.
