Oh how I love all things “buffalo” don’t you? I’ve been meaning to make Buffalo Cauliflower forever, then I made it, and now I’m hooked. Super easy, and not to mention low carb and relatively healthy. If you can’t get enough buffalo, try some of my other favorite buffalo recipes like these Buffalo Pretzels and Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad.
No, these are not chicken wings, but think of them as fun Cauliflower Buffalo Wings! A healthier alternative to fried chicken wings for sure. These little buffalo cauliflower bites are roasted, not fried, and no batter needed to coat them in.
Sorry, I really don’t have any process shots, but it’s so easy you don’t really need them.

Quick Tips for Best Results
- Use fresh good quality cauliflower. You can buy cauliflower florets if you don’t want to chop a cauliflower head yourself.
- Use a hot sauce or buffalo sauce you like. We like Frank’s hot sauce that is widely available.
- Be sure to lightly grease your baking sheet or use a nonstick baking sheet. You could also line your baking sheet with aluminum foil (that has been greased or lightly sprayed with nonstick spray) or parchment paper for easy cleanup.
- Cut your cauliflower into uniform sizes as much as possible so it all cooks in the same amount of time and crispy around the edges.
Buffalo Cauliflower FAQ:
Can I use frozen cauliflower?
You could use defrosted frozen cauliflower, but you may need to adjust the baking time and your results will not be as good.
Can I substitute other vegetables?
You can use this recipe with other roasted vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, potatoes, or whatever else! You will need to adjust the baking time though depending on the type and size of the vegetable.
Can I make this baked buffalo cauliflower at a lower temperature?
Yes, if you don’t want to roast the cauliflower at a higher temperature or if you need to bake something else in the oven at the same time, you can cook the cauliflower for a longer period of time at a lower temperature.
How do I make this into SPICY Buffalo Cauliflower?
I find this fairly spicy, but if you want extra spicy buffalo cauliflower, you can add additional hot sauce or try a spicier hot sauce. You could also add a little sprinkle of cayenne pepper.
Can I make this into air fryer Buffalo Cauliflower?
I haven’t tried it personally, but I don’t see why not! I’m sure it will still turn out quite tasty.
