Recipe Notes

*We used Frank's RedHot Buffalo Sauce which is vegan and classified as milder than their Original sauce. Use 3/4 cup if you don't want it as spicy OR 1 cup if you like it hot! Check the ingredients to make sure you are getting a vegan sauce.

**For cheese, we used our easy, homemade vegan mozzarella recipe. If you don't have pre-soaked cashews, you can use the quick soak method and boil raw cashews for 15 minutes.
