Guys. I think it's safe to say I found a new love.
If you know me at all, you know that Pizza, has been my best friend since day one. I was thrilled to find Fat Head Pizza because it really cut the carbs without sacrificing delicious flavor, but I still wasn't satisfied because after a while I found it greasy and heavy feeling.
So I made something better...
You might have seen my recipe for Better Than Fat Head Pizza. At the time I created it I thought it was truly the pinnacle...I didn't think that Low Carb Pizza could get any better.
That is until today, my friends...
Chicken Pizza Crust
This recipe, inspired by Real Good Pizza (a completely delicious and easy pre-made keto-friendly frozen pizza) completely flips the game on its head.
Forget about almond flour, forget about pork rinds. The base of this recipe is Ground. Chicken.
That's right...this crust is simply made of ground chicken, Parmesan cheese, and spinach. That means it's loaded with protein, not carbs!
I'm so excited about this recipe and I feel great knowing the macros are more balanced for those days when I don't need to load up on fat from cheese.
My mind was absolutely blown when I discovered that ground chicken pizza crust was a possibility.
You can even pick up this crust like real pizza (it gets more firm once it cools!)
But it gets better...
This low carb chicken pizza crust won't leave you with an overly greasy, overly cheesy, overly heavy feeling.
It will simply fill you up, and rock your world.

The Best Low Carb Chicken Pizza Crust
- Yield: 4-6 servings 1x
- 1 pound ground chicken thigh (more flavor/fat than ground chicken breast)
- ½-¾ cup grated (powdered) Parmesan cheese
- ½ cup shredded Parmesan or Mozzarella
- ¼ cup frozen spinach (optional)
- Salt, pepper to taste
- 1 ½ tsp chili powder (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- In large bowl mix ground chicken thigh, cheese and seasoning
- Thaw spinach and remove excess water with paper towel or cheesecloth, add to mixture
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper and press chicken mixture into even thin layer
- Bake for 20 minutes
- Remove from oven and top with desired toppings ( I used red onion, cilantro, chicken, bacon and sugar free bbq sauce!)
- Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and brown
If using ground chicken breast, reduce cooking temperature to 375 and reduce cooking time to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Add additional time after toppings until cheese is melted and golden, being careful not to overcook.
Once pizza cools a bit, it can be picked up like regular crust
If mixture seems too wet, add more grated parmesan. I used freshly ground chicken thigh so there was less moisture. If you're using a roll of chicken, it could be more wet and need extra cheese
Personalize it with your favorite toppings and seasonings in the crust as well
Separate into 4-6 and freeze chicken crust (no toppings) individually for quick meal

OMG IT TASTES SO GOOD!! Excellent recipe - so rarely do keto meals make me feel like I’m not missing out....this recipe did just that! I added bell pepper and jalapeños to my toppings, as well as massaging the bacon grease into the chicken base before baking
My bf tried it and exclaimed -Wow! is this keto?! I could do keto if I was eating that.

Was surprised how it crisped up after adding toppings. I did a pesto version with baby Bella mushrooms, spicy salami and mozzarella. Tasty and filling. Highly recommend!!!

I followed this recipe closely and even put it back in the oven for an additional 8 minutes after it was done but nothing firmed the crust. Not only did the crust not firm up but I couldn't peel the parchment paper off of it without destroying it. It was delicious but it was a little on the heavy side. I was really excited for this recipe and I'm very disappointed on how it turned out. ?

That sugar free syrup you recommend is not good. I have looked at it myself and am an avid label reader, not just because I'm doing Keto but also T2D. It has modified cornstarch (another name for MSG) and sucralose.

How can this be 0 carbs with the cheese?
