How to Make Low Carb Chicken Pizza Crust (Keto)
- Use shredded pre-cooked chicken. Roast chicken, cooked chicken breast or canned chicken breast works well. They’re already cooked, so the crust will have a better bite and chew. Some canned chicken is very salty, so don’t add additional salt when making the crust.
- It’s important to make sure the chicken is finely shredded. This will create more of a tight weave for the crust and it’ll hold together better.

Makes one 10-inch/25-cm pizza. Nutrition based on crust, pizza sauce, & cheese.
- 1 1/4 cups packed cooked shredded chicken (about 1/2 lb.-227g)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
- sliced mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, veggies
- pepperoni, bacon bits, sausage
Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly oil the parchment paper evenly where the chicken will lay.
In bowl whisk the eggs. Add the shredded chicken, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Layer the chicken mixture on the oiled parchment paper into a round or square shape. Pat and press the chicken together making sure there’s no air between the chicken. Flatten and shape the crust, about 1/4-inch (6mm) thin.
Bake the chicken crust for about 15-20 minutes or until it start to crisp, golden and firm. Then allow the crust to cool for about 5-10 minutes so it can become a little more firm.
Add your favorite sauce and toppings and return the pizza to the oven. Bake for about another 10 minutes, or until the cheese melts and toppings are cooked.
