Love pizza but hate the calories and fat that come along with it? I bring to you, the chicken crust pizza. Use the following recipe and tell me what you think!
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees and prepare your pan by spraying it with non-stick spray.
Use as much chicken as you’d like, but here’s the recipe that I used as I doubled my ingredients for the actual crust –
32oz ground chicken (I ground mine in a food processor)
.5 cup mozzarella
.5 cup Parmesan
1/2 tsp black pepper
1tsp garlic powder
Mix all of your ingredients together and spread evenly on a pan using your hands, or by placing a piece of parchment paper on your chicken and using a rolling pin to evenly spread your mixture
Stick your pan in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes.
Once your crust is done, remove from the oven and cover with your desired toppings, there are no rules (including pineapple, because it does belong on pizza despite what Chef Gordon Ramsey says.)
Here are the toppings that I put on mine – (1 package pepperoni, 1.5cups shredded cheese, 1 cup pizza sauce)
Once you have put your toppings on, stick it back in the oven for 8-10 minutes to melt your cheese. Voila! Chicken Crust pizza!
