Ground Chicken Crust Pizza

Ground Chicken Pizza Crust

My husband and I are big fans of pizza but avoid carbs and gluten. Therefore, we are always on the lookout for alternative ways to get big pizza flavor. When I stumbled across this recipe from Jessica and the Sassy Southern Yankee, I knew I had to try it. After reviewing the recipe, I decided it was perfect for one of the nights my husband is scheduled cook. It doesn’t require much time and the instruction are simple, just how he prefers it. You can check out Jessica’s recipe at the link below.

The Crust

Chicken Crust

This crust comes together without the need for special ingredients. It is imply a combination of ground chicken, parmesan, mozzarella, and seasonings. These ingredients are combined well and formed into a thin crust that is baked until golden brown in the oven. It is first baked for 20 minutes and then topped and baked for an additional 10 minutes to melt the cheese and heat the toppings. After it has baked the initial 20 minutes, I recommend using a paper towel to blot the grease from your crust.

Topping Your Pizza

We went ultra simple with our toppings. First, we spread a thin layer of organic pizza sauce over the crust. We then topped it with plenty of mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. You could certainly experiment with different sauce, cheeses, and meat and veggie topping. I think I might go Hawaiian on my next one.

Serving

Once your ground chicken crust pizza has come out of the oven, allow it to rest for about five minutes. This will make it easier to slice. I like to put out parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes that people can add if desired.

Overall, this is a simple meal to prepare and really satisfied our pizza craving. I would love to hear what you think.

Happy Cooking and Eating!
