What is chicken crust pizza made of?

bowl of ground chicken meat

Well, chicken of course! While there are recipes throughout the web using different types of chicken (shredded chicken, chicken breast, or canned chicken) to make this pizza, our recipe 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.

Can I eat chicken crust pizza on the carnivore diet?

Yes! Chicken crust pizza can be tweaked and made carnivore diet friendly!

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

  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!

  6. Definitely has a different texture, and it took me a bit to get passed the ground chicken part, however it was scrumptious!

  7. Can this be made without eggs? I’m allergic to eggs but love this idea because I don’t like regular pizza crust!

    1. You should be able it. The egg is just there for support so you may have to eat it with a fork instead of holding it in your hands. 🙂

  8. Hi, I made this delicious recipe just now, but forget to put in the mozzarella cheese! I put in everything else though…Is the crust supposed to be crispy or not so much?? I’m thinking the mozz would make it more crispy, but the crust looks great…Will have to make another one!

  9. Wow, this was so good! First time making chicken crust, I prefer this much more than fathead dough or cauliflower crust. I did a lot of searching to find a recipe that didn’t use canned chicken, this is definitely the winner!
