Keto Chicken Pizza Crust

We are trying to change our lifestyle and working on being more healthy. That means losing weight for me, and avoiding things that trigger sarcoidosis flares for him. So we are now both keto. I still like eating though, and cooking, and sometimes we want pizza, so here this goes. 

Ingredients

12.5 oz can chicken

2 Tbs almond flour (I used almond meal bc that’s what I bought)

1 egg

1-2 Tbs Italian dressing

½ – 1 cup cheapo grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp baking powder

Splash of ACV

Optional: dried Italian herb seasoning and garlic powder to taste

Preheat your oven to 500.

Drain the chicken. Add everything else but the Italian dressing and stir well. I actually just use my hands like I’m making a meatloaf or… a pizza crust. If it seems like it needs some moisture to hold together, add Italian dressing a little at a time, mixing well until the crust holds together in a ball.

Spread the crust into the shape you want, on either a silpat or parchment paper. You can put another piece of parchment paper on top to roll it out if you like, I just use my hands because I don’t own another silpat and I don’t want to waste parchment paper. It should hold together pretty well, like a regular pizza crust.

Bake for around 20 minutes. Check around 10 and 15 minutes though, because I don’t know your oven, man. I don’t know what that thing does. Once it starts browning and is relatively solid to the touch in the center, you can add all your stuff to it.

I added some relatively low-carb sauce we found at Trader Joe’s, pepperoni, olive tapenade (again from TJ’s), and Ken’s half got pickled jalapenos because that’s what he’s into. Then shove it back into the oven.

 

Realistically you should cook it til the cheese is bubbly and brown, but if you just can’t take it any more because dammit you’re HUNGRY, just get it out when the cheese melts.

I’m happy with this- it can be cut into slices and eaten out of hand hand like regular pizza.

Macros are approximate since idk what you’ve got, and some of the measurements are estimatey. They’re also for the entire crust- divide however you like to cut yours. Is it a lot? Yeah, probably, but it fills me up and I can eat the way I need to eat (a lot in a short period of time). Ymmv.
