What You Need to Make this Recipe

  • Chicken: I use canned chicken for the base of the crust. Cooked and shredded chicken or ground chicken are great alternatives.
  • Parmesan: Shredded parmesan cheese helps flavor the pizza and acts as a binder for the crust.
  • Egg: Bind the ingredients for the crust together using an egg.
  • Toppings: Top the pizza with Franks Buffalo Sauce mixed with butter, and fresh mozzarella, and garnish with scallions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is chicken crust made of?

There are several ways to create a delicious pizza crust made out of chicken, but I keep it simple. Get your hands on canned or shredded chicken, parmesan cheese, an egg, and a dash of garlic powder for flavor- that’s all you need!

What kind of chicken can you use?

I use canned chicken, but you can boil and shred the chicken and make it using the same recipe. Another option is to use ground chicken, but adjust the cooking process.

Add the uncooked ground chicken to a bowl with parmesan cheese and an egg. Stir to combine, then add the ingredients to a parchment paper in a circle. You don’t need to roll it out just yet, but this helps maintain the form when it’s time to roll. Instead of the first 10-minute bake, cook the chicken mixture for 20 minutes, then follow the remaining instructions accordingly.

Is this pizza keto? Is it low-carb?

I calculated one serving of buffalo chicken crust pizza (4 slices) to make it easy for you.
