Low Carb Pizza crusts can be difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing. When you do know what you are doing with crust recipes, you can meal plan all kinds of interesting tastes and flavors with things like almond flour or chickpea flour. 

 

Pizza comes from Venice and was originally made from scrap leftovers at the end of the day to utilize all of the ingredients so that none would go to waste. Originally seen as low brow commoner food, its versatility, low difficulty, and deliciousness has caused it to spread throughout the world in all kinds of variations. I like to use salsa instead of tomato sauce. You can also mince up some carrot into the tomato sauce. 

 

This pizza recipe is made with ground chicken, which makes it a keto pizza and means you can eat lots of it without worrying about your weight! It also means it’s high in protein which is great for feeling full and for getting gains for all your exercise and physical exertion. Ground chicken allows you to make low carb pizza while not having to worry about gluten allergies. Low carb pizzas are a great way to eat rich, delicious, comforting food without sacrificing health or athleticism. Low carb doesn’t have to mean low flavor, it can be tasty like other high carb pizzas and still great for weight loss! So good for weight loss you can keep eating more pizza! When you get used to the recipe, try mixing it up and experimenting by putting different things in the flour or on the pizza!

 

If you had a fun time trying this low carb ground chicken pizza crust recipe for quick and easy dinners throughout the week, please drop me a comment or send me a message. Isn’t it great that pizza can be easy and so yummy! For one last tip, try cooking on a pizza stone! I would be happy to hear from you! Keep happy and healthy! Bon appetit!

The Best Chicken Crust Low-Carb 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
    • pinch of pepper
    • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 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.
