Easy Chicken-Crust Pizza Recipe

Chicken crust pizza recipe

I have tried a lot of pizza crust alternative-type recipes, but this one is by far my favorite.  It makes a firm, crisp crust that you can pick up and eat with your hands like a “normal” slice.  My kids never even asked if there was a difference between this crust and their beloved Pizza Hut!


1 cup finely chopped cooked chicken breast (You can chop it with a knife but I used a food processor)

1/2 cup part skim shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg white

*Toppings (Cheese, vegetables etc…)



Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine all ingredients with your hands in a large bowl.

Press onto baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with EVOO spray. Form a flat circular “crust” shape about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick.  You can season the crust if you like, I added some dried oregano and garlic powder.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes before adding sauce, add toppings (I chose grilled onions and chopped kale- the more veggies the better!) and lightly sprinkle with more mozzarella cheese.

Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    I made this but I have a question about the amount of chicken.
    Is the one cup the same for chopped and food processor shredded?

    Interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of using chicken for the crust. I’d love to try to make this Buffalo chicken style.
