Pizza.

There is nothing more delicious, comforting, or relaxing than pizza – it is a quick go-to when you’re busy, it’s a great indulgent treat for get-togethers, and it’s as easy ar picking up a phone to order it in.

Low Carb Pizza Chicken

There is nothing more delicious, comforting, or relaxing than pizza – it is a quick go-to when you’re busy, it’s a great indulgent treat for get-togethers, and it’s as easy ar picking up a phone to order it in.

While we’ve missed the buttery crunch of pizza dough – we have come up with some delicious pizza alternatives – and the one I’m sharing today is my absolute favorite!

My husband and I have recently started using thinly sliced (and pounded) chicken as a pizza “crust” – that is delicious and full of family friendly flavor.

This ooey, gooey, rich and delicious low carb cheesy pizza chicken is bursting with protein, cheese, and tons of pizza flavor – and it is so incredibly easy to make.

It feeds a crowd, just like pizza, and can be pre-prepped for Friday night celebrations or a big dinner party – making it the ideal low carb cozy comfort food!

How To Make Chicken Pizza

Using chicken as a base for a gooey cheesy pizza might seem a bit funny – but it works perfectly and is insanely easy!

Use these tips to make a Low Carb Cheesy Chicken Pizza that your whole family will love:

-Pound chicken thin.

The thinner your chicken, the more it will crisp up and take on a nice light but sturdy texture that is perfect as the base for a cheesy pizza!

-Brown chicken but don’t fully cook.

Since you’ll be cooking chicken as a “pizza”, you can brown chicken well but you don’t need to worry about cooking all the way to 165 internal temperature right away – it will cook the rest of the way when baking.

-Bake chicken until cheese is bubbly and crunchy.

This baked chicken is perfect and full of pizza flavor – but you want it to have nicely crisped cheese. Make sure to keep baking it until it browns!

  1. I have made this recipe twice at home from my husband and both times he has loved it. He is a very picky eater. The second time around I did forget to purchase pasta sauce so I did have to improvise with a can of tomato sauce, some olive oil and salt, pepper, chili flakes, oregano, and garlic powder to taste.. I also added fresh baby spinach on top of chicken before adding the sauce. I also sent a sample over to my parents and my father absolutely enjoyed it also he shared none with my mother. GREAT RECIPE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING!

  2. Oh I love this recipe! You can never go wrong with a low carb pizza recipe, I’m excited to give this a try. Thank you!
