High-Protein Chicken Crust Pizza

Chicken Crust Pizza

Yep, you read that right! This pizza is built on a foundation of chicken so it’s ideal for us high-protein dieters.

This protein-packed pie is as low-carb as it gets so if you’re a real meat lover, layer on even more for toppings like pepperoni, turkey sausage, or bacon.

Serves 4

Ingredients

3 chicken breasts (about 1 lb.), roughly chopped

Coarse sea salt and black pepper to taste

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup coconut flour

2 eggs

¾ cup shredded mozzarella

Toppings of choice

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

2. Make the crust in the food processor or blender. First add chicken and spices, and finely mince together. Then mix in the cheese, eggs, and coconut flour until the “dough” takes on a texture like glue.

3. Spread the chicken mixture in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15–20 minutes, and remove when golden brown.

4. Layer on sliced vegetables, more cheese, or meat toppings (not included in nutrition facts), and bake for 15 more minutes.
