Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 10 ounces of canned chicken drain, break up with a fork and dry on paper towels
  • salt to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 cup of pizza sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400℉. Line an oven-safe pan with parchment paper.
  • Whisk your eggs in a mixing bowl. Then stir in half of the mozzarella cheese.
  • Pour the mixture into the parchment-paper lined pan.
  • Now add your chicken evenly over the egg mixture and incorporate with the egg. Press the chicken into the mixture while spreading it to form a circle towards the edge of the pan.
    You may want to lift the edges up to create a lip around the edges.
  • Season with salt and garlic powder and bake for fifteen minutes until golden.
  • Take it out of the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes before adding your toppings.
  • Turn the oven up to 450 ℉.
  • Top your pizza base with sauce.
  • Season with oregano and top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 5-10 minutes and enjoy.

Notes

  • I love canned chicken for this recipe because it doesn't have a strong chicken taste. You could also go with shredded rotisserie chicken or shredded cooked chicken breast. I haven't tried this with cooked ground chicken so I can't say how it would turn out.
  • Be sure to drain your canned chicken and dry it on paper towels so your pizza will not be too wet. A dry crust will be crispier.
  • I make this pizza in my oven-safe cast iron pan or stainless steel pan because it's easy to get the desired round shape. Alternatively, you could make it on parchment paper on a pizza peel and slide the crust with the paper onto a pizza stone in your oven. Either way, use parchment paper because the crust can be sticky. Bonus: the pan stays clean!
  • Feel free to go with any toppings you like. Sometimes I add pepperoni or sausage. You could also go with a white (no sauce) pizza for a lower carb count or switch out the pizza sauce for alfredo sauce or pesto and top with spinach, basil, onions, peppers, mushrooms or even bacon. Have fun!
  • I love seasoning my "crust" with garlic and salt. Go ahead and use any seasonings you prefer.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
A note about tomato sauce: tomatoes contain natural sugars and have a net carb count of 3 grams per 3.5 ounces. Tomato products, especially those that concentrate and thicken pureed tomatoes, can be high in carbs. Some canned or jarred tomato sauces add extra sugar to their recipes.
Rao's and Muir Glen pizza sauces have no added sugar.
