You are not going to believe how easy this chicken crust pizza is to make and how fast!  I had this ready in about 30 minutes.

The ingredients needed for this pizza crust are ground chicken, mozzarella cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and your favorite pizza toppings.


To get things started, I pre-heated the oven and I mixed all of the chicken crust pizza ingredients in a bowl.

If you want, you can make this using raw, boneless, skinless chicken pieces.  They would just need to be ground in the food processor first.

After I mixed everything with my hands, I got a sheet of parchment paper and spread the mixture out in a pizza shape.  I tried to get this chicken crust pizza as thin as possible.

This recipe is enough for 2 to 3 people.  If you want to feed more people, I would make 2 pizzas instead of just making one big pizza.  I think doubling the recipe and making 1 large pizza would have poor results.

I baked the crust for 20 minutes first before adding the toppings.  I put the parchment paper with the crust in the oven directly on the rack.

When the crust was all finished baking, it looked like this!

To keep this simple, I just added pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese and I put it back in the oven for 10 more minutes.

When it was finished, I garnished it with shaved parmesan, red pepper flake, and fresh basil.  Yum!

To freeze this crust, you would first cook it like the instructions state.  You can do the whole recipe, even as far as adding the toppings…but after you add the toppings, let it cool completely without doing the second bake.  After the pizza is cooled completely, Place it on a sheet pan in the freezer for 30 minutes to flash freeze.

After 30 minutes, pull it out of the freezer, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months.  When you’re ready to eat the pizza, pre-heat the oven to 400F, place the unwrapped pizza on a piece of parchment and bake it in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

    Crust only review! I only used this recipe for the crust portion and it had really good flavor. The only suggestion that I would make is that 1/2″ is too thick and gives it an odd texture, IMO. Will definitely make again but I’ll roll it out thinner to make it a bit crisper. Oh yeah, aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray will work in place of parchment paper.

    I’ve made other keto/low-carb crusts, but none compare to this one. My husband and I like this crust a lot, but my youngest LOVES it! He’s always asking when I’m going to fix pizza with this crust again.

      This is from the recipe:

      I put the parchment paper with the crust in the oven directly on the rack.

      Place the pizza crust and the parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet snd bake for 20 minutes.

      So I’m reading two different references about how to bake the crust in the oven. Could you clarify for me as I may be misunderstanding the directions? This sounds so yummy and I’m looking forward to trying it.

      Thanks so much for your response and for sharing this very interesting recipe.

        Sorry about that, Nora. I did change the recipe to place the crust on a rimmed baking sheet so the crust doesn’t drip in the oven. I will update the post and thank you for bringing that to my attention!

    What a great recipe. I had a problem with the parchment paper though. As it turned out, mine wasn’t non- stick. I didn’t realize there were differences in papers. I wish I had checked the link in the recipe first! My husband said this is a keeper.

      Sorry if this is a dumb question but is the 408 calories just for the crust or with the toppings too (new to eating healthy lol) I wanna make this exact recipe but I’m currently doing keto so I would like to log my correct info. 🙂

        It’s for just the crust. Each serving is half of the pizza

    What a great recipe! The idea is pure genius! My only problem was the fact that the parchment paper I used didn’t do well with the oven temp (read crispy) and the crust stuck to the paper. I should have checked your choice of parchment in the recipe. Non-stick parchment, who knew. My husband said if I could figure out the paper, they were a keeper! Thanks.

    This looks awsome.
    I’m going to try it topped with 1. BBQ sauce and red onion and bacon.
    Or 2. Buffalo sauce with crumbled blue cheese.
    Looks like a 5 star recipe I’ll let you know.

      • jenniferbanz

        Just devoured the bbq pizza. Buffalo one is in oven. Very good just had to pat off moisture before adding toppings

    I’m looking at my crust 10min into baking and it’s juicing like crazy! Why? ?

      • jenniferbanz
      • June 24, 2018

      That happens, it’s no big deal! Chicken will release moisture as it cooks.
