And here it is – the world’s best low-carb chicken crust pizza.

A pizza that’s low-carb AND high in protein? With the crust made of savory, lean chicken breast, guarantee this will be love at first bite.

It’s pretty much a fail-proof recipe that you can easily make your own. Just don’t get TOO carried away with the cheese, and…well, I’ll leave the “only eat 1 serving” sermon to y’all. I failed…but had no regrets.

This recipe is also ketogenic friendly.  If you’d like to boost the level of fat, simply swap chicken breasts with chicken thighs.  Ever considered trying the ketogenic diet? Well, check out my 8-week experiment on YouTube!

The Best Low-Carb Chicken Crust Pizza

Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • Crust
    • 1 1/4lb raw chicken breast
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • 1 teaspoon sage
    • pinch of pepper
  • Topping
    • 3 tablespoons reduced calorie pizza sauce
    • 1/4 cup grated parmesan (optional but recommended)
    • 1/4 cup chopped basil
    • 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella
    • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • Garnish
    • red pepper flakes
    • dried chives
Steps
  1. Set oven to 450F/232C.
  2. Add the ingredients for the crust to a food processor or high-powered blender.  Pulse blend until mixed and minced.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add the pizza crust.  Mash it down to form a thin circle or a large rectangle, less than 1/4-inch thick.  Bake in the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the edges have browned and the chicken has cooked through.
  4. Add the ingredients for the topping in the order listed and feel free to incorporate your own low-calorie ingredients.
  5. Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted, browned and bubbled, about 6 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, garnish, slice and enjoy!  Allowing the pizza to cool slightly will make it much easier to handle and hold like traditional pizza.
