No Carb Chicken Crust Pizza

I’ve been on the hunt for the best keto/low-carb pizza crust since August of last year. I’ve tried ones with almond flour and ones with isolate protein powder. I didn’t really care for either of their textures. This is by far the best one I’ve found... and the crust has the most surprising ingredient! It’s made out of Parmesan, egg and CHICKEN IN A CAN!! The geniuses, Matt and Megha from KetoConnect, made up this crust recipe. My only variation from their crust recipe is that I added some Italian herbs. I think next time I’ll add a bit of sea salt to add more pizza crust taste to it. I made a pepperoni, Italian sausage and mushroom pizza with it but I think next time I’ll just do a plain pepperoni and cheese because this crust tastes really good with the crispy pepperoni. I have many plans for this crust recipe like making cheesy garlic breadsticks or some chips for nachos. Excuse me while I drive to Costco and buy some chicken in a can in bulk! 

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 10 oz Canned Chicken 

  • 1 oz grated parmesan

  • 1 large Egg

*NOTE: Pre-cook toppings such as bell peppers, sausages and mushrooms as they will only be in the oven for 6-10 minutes. Pepperoni does not need to be pre-cooked since they're cured and will crisp up in the oven. 

Servings: 8-10 Inch Crust

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Thoroughly drain the canned chicken, getting as much moisture out as possible.

  2. Spread chicken on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes to dry out the chicken.

  3. Once chicken is done baking for 10 minutes remove and place in a mixing bowl. Increase heat of oven to 500 degrees.

  4. Add cheese and egg to the bowl with chicken and mix.

  5. Pour mixture onto baking sheet lined with a silicon mat and spread thin. Placing parchment paper on top and using a rolling pin makes this easier.

  6. Optional: With a spatula press the edges of the crust in to for a ridge for the crust. This is beneficial is you're using topping that may slide off(i.e. eggs).

  7. Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes at 500 degrees.

  8. Remove crust from oven. Add desired toppings and bake for another 6-10 minutes at 500 degrees. Toppings will dictate final cook time. (Make sure toppings are pre-cooked, such as sausage, peppers and mushrooms)

  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Your life is now changed. Enjoy!
