Keto Smoked Chicken Basil Parmesan Pizza Crust with Toppings

  • The Crust
    • 1 lb. chicken thigh and breast (70/30)
    • 1 cup grated fresh Parmesan (pulsated until ground in my food processor)
    • 1/2 cup spinach cooked in 1 tsp ghee
    • ~1/2 to 1 tsp red chili powder
    • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Combine chopped chicken, cheese, and seasonings. Mix well. Add cooked spinach and mix again, kneading with your hands to make a pseudo-dough.
  • Press dough onto a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400F for 20 mins.
  • Take out and put your toppings of choice on the pizza. Bake for another 10-12 mins until desired.

The crust was a bit dry in some places, so I wonder what adding an egg would do? But other than that, it was absolutely delicious, and pizza is so customizable! I definitely want to do a Margherita version one night (my favorite!).

My toppings for this particular version include…

  • 1/2 cup Rao’s marinara sauce (a very good low carb red sauce–highly recommend!)
  • 1 piece of bacon, crumbled
  • 45g feta cheese
  • 65g chicken
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary
