Ok, Back to the chicken pizza crust, it only requires 4 key ingredients, plus seasonings and it comes together with very little effort. In addition, it tastes so good and has a chewy texture just like traditional pizza crust and you can just add different toppings to customize it.

I like to keep it simple sometimes so I decided on marinara or pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella, tomato, and fresh basil leaves. You can also add things like pesto, sliced mushrooms, spinach, and parmesan cheese.

Are you a burger fan too? I have a great viral low-carb burger recipe called the Flying Dutchman Burger that you will love!

Ingredients you will need

I love that you only need a handful of ingredients to make this chicken pizza crust recipe! Here’s the lineup:

  • Ground chicken: The raw ground chicken forms the base of the crust and ensures it is sturdy enough to hold the toppings.
  • Parmesan cheese: Finely grated parmesan cheese adds flavor and helps to hold the crust together.
  • Egg: For binding the ingredients together and forming the crust.
  • Seasonings: A blend of garlic powder, Italian seasoning, kosher salt and pepper adds a burst of Italian flavor.
  • Toppings: You can really use any toppings that you like best! We love freshly shredded mozzarella, tomato slices, and fresh basil.

See a full list of ingredients and quantities in the recipe card below!

Variations

  • Use ground turkey: Ground turkey will work in place of the ground chicken if that’s what you have.
  • Different sauce: Instead of the classic pizza sauce, you can use homemade pesto. Even homemade Alfredo sauce would be a great way to change the flavor.
  • Toppings: Make it your own with these topping options: roasted vegetables, pepperoni, sausage, spinach, sautéed onions, black olives, or anything else you’re craving. Just be sure not to add too many, which might make the pizza too heavy.

Helpful tips

  • Pizza sauce: Try my homemade marinara for an especially fresh and delicious taste if you do not want to use store bought.
  • Forming the pizza: The pizza will cook best if the chicken mixture is spread thinly and evenly (see the above pictures).
  • Adding the toppings: Be sure to bake the crust for 30 minutes before adding the toppings. This will ensure your crust cooks all the way through.
