What is chicken crust pizza made of?

Well, chicken of course! While there are recipes throughout the web using different types of chicken to make this pizza, our recipes uses ground chicken.

Ground chicken works really well as a pizza crust because it can be handled and mixed easily, it has a mild flavor and provides structure to the dough. The egg serves as a binder in this recipe and the cheese provides flavor and support. This pizza is loaded with proteins too – 28.4 grams per quarter of the pizza! Chicken is also used as a pizza crust because it is relatively lean and won’t leak out a lot of fat as it cooks.

  1. So good and so easy! Trust me when I say you won’t be missing out on regular pizza anymore! I’m new to Keto and this will definitely become a staple! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This crust is amazing!!! I have converted 5 non-keto friends and family members to this crust. I have been able to press this out on a large cookie sheet to less than a 1/4″ with great results. A tip I saw somewhere (which I don’t remember where to give credit) is to let the crust sit/cool for 10 min when you take it out of the oven. Then put the sauce on. This helps the sauce not to be absorbed into the crust as much. Can make a supreme pizza that holds up! Love this pizza!

  3. This crust is wonderful and easy to make. My brother-in-law is diabetic, so I sent a link to my sister for the recipe, and they loved it!

  4. How would ground turkey do in this recipe? I have some ground turkey in my frig that I need to use today and I’m wondering if I should try it with this recipe.

    1. Hi Kathryn, I have never tried! If it works, it would be great for breakfast. Sausage is gonna have more fat then chicken, so it will be interesting how this holds up. Maybe try it in a pyrek baking dish to ensure the fat doesn’t end up overflowing.

  5. Ok, this was so good! We like fathead dough pizza, but this was more filling and likely a better option than fathead pizza crust. Prior to keto I had never made a pizza from scratch, but there is a therapy in cooking l like this with all whole ingredients! This pizza recipe is a keeper!
