Best buffalo cauliflower: ISLANDS PIZZA

Best buffalo cauliflower

Buffalo cauliflower is usually hit or miss. I’ve come across delectable piles of bite-size florets, perfectly fried and coated with fiery hot sauce, but also less-than-desirable versions — including a haphazardly executed whole head of… not buffalo cauliflower. Womp, womp. Luckily, diners on Davis Islands know they’re getting the real deal from Islands Pizza. The neighborhood pizzeria’s buffalo cauliflower bites are lovingly protected by a thick batter and tossed in a dreamy sauce, one that pairs great with the accompanying side of ranch dressing. They’re addictive to the max. 235 E. Davis Blvd., Tampa. 813-254-5818, islandspizza.com. —Meaghan Habuda
