Flourless Pizza Dough
What kind of website would this be if there wasn't at least ONE pizza recipe? Okay, not an entire pizza recipe, but an alternative dough recipe. And let me tell you, it's delicious. It even received a stamp of approval from my dad, who has at least two pizza ordering apps on his phone AND he's on a first name basis with the owners of a local pizza shop. It's THAT good.
When I was experimenting with recipes that were Keto-friendly, I needed to find low carb alternatives to many foods that I enjoy. This pizza crust only needs three ingredients. It's that easy.
10oz Canned Chicken (in water)
1oz Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Large Egg
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Open and drain as much water as you can from the chicken
- Break down the chunks of chicken to shreds and spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Try to space it out as well as you can so that it can dry faster
- Bake the shredded chicken for about 10-12 minutes, making sure to stir and mix it halfway through so that the pieces can dry out fairly evenly
- Remove the chicken and dump it into a large mixing bowl, let it cool for about 5-10 minutes. Don't throw away the parchment paper, you can reuse it later.
- Raise the oven temperature to 500°F
- Once the chicken has cooled (it does not have to be cold, just not hot enough that it will cook the egg), mix in the egg and cheese so that you have a sticky batter
- Spread the "dough" onto the same pan with parchment paper into whatever shape crust you want. I just made a big circle, but you can go high school cafeteria style and make it rectangular, or even leave a thicker edge to make a crust.
- Bake the dough only for about 8-10 minutes. It will not be completely done.
- Remove from the oven, and add the toppings you enjoy. I kept mine simple by using a store-bought marinara, and topped with mozzarella, cheddar, pepperoni, and basil.
- Once your toppings are added, put the pizza back in the over and bake for an additional 6-10 minutes or until toppings are melted and browned to your liking.
