This week we bring you another delicious Keto recipe. This week we present a Keto Garlic Chicken Pizza, made with a chicken crust and topped with a homemade Alfredo Garlic Sauce, chicken, and ground beef. You know I love anything pizza, right? And because I know many of my readers do too, I have a new one to add to your arsenal – a keto chicken crust pizza recipe! This low carb chicken pizza crust has only FOUR ingredients (plus salt), and is one of the easiest things you can make.
This pizza comes together very quickly, and the crust is just a few simple ingredients that you mix up and press into shape. Sometimes we make this in a circle on the stone, other times we use a parchment-covered baking sheet, double the recipe, and make a huge rectangle pizza. Both methods work just fine. My favorite part is the sauce. I really love a white-sauce pizza over marinara based any day. This crust works so well making this a solid Keto pizza recipe to add to the rotation.
Step 1: let’s MAKE THE CRUST:
Thoroughly drain the canned chicken, getting as much moisture out as possible.
Spread chicken on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat
. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes to dry out the chicken.
Once the chicken is done the baking for 10 minutes remove and place in a mixing bowl. Increase the heat of the oven to 500 degrees.
Add cheese and egg to the bowl with chicken and mix.
Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat and spread thin. Placing parchment paper on top and using a rolling pin makes this easier.
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).
Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes at 500 degrees.
Remove crust from oven. Add desired toppings and bake for another 6-10 minutes at 500 degrees. Toppings will dictate the final cook time.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Your life is now changed. Enjoy!
Step 2: let’s MAKE OUR SAUCE
*Note: This is where you can be creative, we made the creamy Alfredo because we were looking for the lowest carbs possible with our pizza. But you can use a tomato sauce, a pesto sauce or whatever you’d like.
Creamy Alfredo Sauce:
- 3 TB butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- garlic and seasonings to taste
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter….when it has melted and starts to lightly bubble, add the heavy cream…. simmers over low heat until mixture lightly bubbles, stir in parmesan cheese and seasonings….whisking well. Remove from heat.
Remove pizza crust from the oven…..spread with creamy alfredo sauce.
STEP 3: LET’S ASSEMBLE OUR PIZZA:
- 2 to 3 chicken thighs, chopped and cooked
- 1/2 cup ground beef cooked
- 3 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
- mozzarella cheese ( about 1 cup, more if desired)
Spread your pizza crust with the creamy alfredo sauce.
Add a layer of mozzarella cheese (about 1/2 cup, more if desired)
top with cooked chicken thighs, and bacon crumbles…additional cheese to taste.
Bake at 500 degrees for an additional 7 – 8 minutes, watching carefully to avoid overcooking.
