The Best Low Carb Pizza

Guilt free pizza without giving up the taste!
If you love pizza, and come on, who doesn’t, you HAVE to try his low carb, gluten free, guilt free option!

Yield: 4-6 servings

1 pound ground chicken thigh (more flavor/fat than ground chicken breast but you can use breast or all ground chicken also)
1/2-3/4 cup grated (powdered) Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan or Mozzarella
1/4 cup frozen spinach (optional)
Salt, pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp chili powder (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In large bowl mix ground chicken thigh, cheese and seasoning

Thaw spinach and remove excess water with paper towel or cheesecloth, add to mixture

Line baking sheet with parchment paper and press chicken mixture into even thin layer

Bake for 20 minutes

Remove from oven and top with desired toppings (ideas: red onion, cilantro, chicken, bacon and sugar free or low sugar bbq sauce!)

Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and brown

If using ground chicken breast, reduce cooking temperature to 375 and reduce cooking time to 15 minutes or until cooked through. Add additional time after toppings until cheese is melted and golden, being careful not to overcook.

Once pizza cools a bit, it can be picked up like regular crust

If mixture seems too wet, add more grated parmesan. I used freshly ground chicken thigh so there was less moisture. If you’re using a roll of chicken, it could be more wet and need extra cheese

Personalize it with your favorite toppings and seasonings in the crust as well

Separate into 4-6 and freeze chicken crust (no toppings) individually for quick meal
