It’s an easy keto pizza recipe the whole family will enjoy; espeically if they like chicken!
Ground Chicken for the Crust
Chicken works really well as a pizza crust because 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.
Chicken crust pizza is one pizza you can have on the carnivore diet! There is almost zero carbs in the crust alone (just few from the cheese). For the sauce, you can use butter or just omit the sauce all together. Top with more cheese and your favorite meat toppings. This creates a delicious carnivore pizza when you are craving that italian pie!
