The only carbs in this pizza are from the tomato sauce. The crust? Chicken.
2 chicken breasts
1.5 cups shredded mozzarella
2-4 cloves chopped garlic (I like mine really garlic-y, so I used about 4)
4-5 tablespoons tomato sauce of your choice (I try to keep it as low in carbs as possible)
.5 cup ground italian sausage (I freeze the left-over sausage either for breakfasts or for pizzas in the future)
(or whatever toppings you fancy)
- Preheat your oven to 375 F. Boil your chicken in a pot of water for about 25-30 mins, until chicken is fully cooked. Run the cooked breasts through the food processor, blender, or chop with a knife until it resembles “meal” or dense crumbs. Do the same with the shredded cheese. Combine the chicken and the cheese and press in to an oven safe pan (I used a 10 in. spring form pan, but an 8x8 square pan could work too), forming a crust. Sprinkle the garlic over the top of the crust. I promise you, it won’t burn in the oven, and it smells amazing. Bake this crust for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile start cooking your italian sausage. I cooked it in a pan until it was just browned, because it will continue cooking in the oven later. After your crust is done spread your sauce around, add sausage, cheese and pepperoni any way you like, and continue baking for another 20 minutes.
Let cool and serve.
Seriously, this is so delicious.
Need to try.
