Chicken Crust Pizza Tips

This is a really easy and straightforward recipe, but there are still a few tips that will help you succeed the first time.

  • Drain the chicken really well. Press down on the chicken and squeeze out any extra moisture that you can. For a crispy crust, the chicken needs be drained as well as possible.
  • Make extra pizza crusts and freeze them. Then, you will always have extra crusts ready for you when you want to make pizza.
  • If you deviate from the recipe, recalculate your macros. Use an app like LoseIt to input the new recipe and it will calculate the carbs for you.
  • Always read ingredient labels. If you buy alfredo or red sauce from the store, make sure you only buy the kinds without any added sugar.

Ingredients

There are two parts to this recipe – the crust and the toppings.

Low-Carb Chicken Crust

  • 2 10oz cans chicken breast, drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

White Florentine Pizza Topping

  • 1 cup alfredo sauce (can also use red sauce, if preferred)
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • ¼ c. red onion, chopped
  • 1 plum tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • 6 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1-2 cups shredded mozzarella

STEP 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread drained chicken breast on a parchment or silicone-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes in order to remove excess moisture. Remove from oven; increase oven temperature to 500 degrees. 

STEP 2. In a large mixing bowl, combine chicken, eggs, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, and ½ cup parmesan cheese, then form into a ball of “dough.”

STEP 3. Place “dough” on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet or pizza pan. Flatten the dough into a disk, then cover with an additional sheet of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll out the crust to ¼” thickness.

STEP 4. Bake crust at 500 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Remove crust from oven. 

STEP 5. Spread alfredo sauce over the crust, then add additional toppings to the pizza. Bake for additional 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

STEP 6. Remove pizza from the oven and it let cool for 5-7 minutes before serving.

  1. I’m about to try with leftover shredded chicken. Any reason it wouldn’t work? My Chicken is already pretty dry, so I may skip the “dry in the oven step.”

    1. This is a fantastic way to use leftover cooked chicken. You’re right. If your chicken has sat in the fridge for a day, it is probably already dry enough. You can probably skip this step.
      Thank you Anita!
