Mini Keto Chicken Crust Pizza: Low Carb Recipe

Share to save for later!

There are several low carb pizza options using cauliflower, broccoli or even almond flour as the crust but today I’ll try something different. I will be making a chicken-based pizza crust using chicken breast, Parmesan cheese and eggs.

These mini Keto Chicken Crust pizzas should be eaten warm. The texture is very close to a pizza dough. The best part is that you can prepare the dough with just 3 simple ingredients then bake in the oven and you’re ready for a treat.

If you want a proper size pizza, I suggest you try my Mexican pizza or Fat Head Pizza for the full experience.

You can use canned chicken to make keto pizza crust but I prefer to use fresh chicken breast.

You can use keto friendly ingredients for topping. I wouldn’t go with other high protein topping such as meat or seafood because the chicken pizza crust is already high protein.

On this occasion, I used a spoonful of marinara sauce, a little bit of cheddar cheese and black olives as topping. You can throw in some spinach for topping if you like.

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Pizza Crust

Cook the Chicken: Boil chicken breasts in salted water until cooked and tender. Alternatively, roast the chicken for a drier crust.

Drying shredded chicken breast

Prepare the Chicken Crust: Once cooked, shred the chicken in a food processor. Spread it on a baking sheet and dry it in the oven at 300°F for 10 minutes.

Blend chicken with cheese and egg

Make the Dough: Put the dried chicken back in the food processor. Add Parmesan cheese and beaten eggs. Pulse until it resembles pizza dough.

Form chicken mixture into pizza

Shape and Bake the Crusts: Roll the dough flat and cut into rounds using cookie cutters. Bake these crusts on a baking sheet at 300°F for 20 minutes until they brown.

Top and Finish: Add your favorite toppings and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.

  • 2 cup chicken breast
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large egg
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil some cups of water in a deep pot. Place the chicken breast in and spice up with salt and pepper. When the chicken is cooked and tender, remove from the heat and drain with a colander. Alternatively, instead of boiling, you can roast the chicken if you want a very dry pizza crust.
  • Using a food processor, tear the chicken into small bits. Transfer to a baking sheet. Set the oven to 300°F and place the baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes, just enough to dry the meat.
  • When done, replace in the food processor. Toss in the parmesan cheese and add the beaten eggs. Continue pulsing until the mixture becomes identical to a pizza dough, enough to be kneaded.
  • Transfer the dough to a flat sheet and use a rolling pin to flatten it. Cut round shapes on the crust using cookie cutters.
  • Replace the pizza crusts on the same baking sheet and put in the 300°F preheated oven again for 20 minutes. Brown the crusts before removing. Throw in any desired pizza topping and rebake for an additional 5-7 minutes. Enjoy your mini pizzas while warm!

How many carbs in a chicken crust pizza?

The carb content in a chicken crust pizza is typically very low, often ranging from 1 to 3 grams of net carbs per serving. This low carb count is because the crust is made primarily from chicken, eggs and cheese, which are both low in carbohydrates. My recipe above contains 1 gram of carb per serving.

What is keto pizza crust made of?

Keto pizza crust is typically made from low-carb, high-fat ingredients to align with the ketogenic diet such as almond flour or coconut flour as a base, combined with ingredients like eggs, cheese (such as mozzarella or cream cheese), and sometimes psyllium husk for binding. Some recipes also use ground chicken or cauliflower as a base for an even lower carb count.

How to reheat chicken breast pizza crust?

To reheat a chicken breast pizza crust, preheat your oven to around 350°F (175°C). Place the pizza on a baking sheet and heat it in the oven for about 5-10 minutes, or until it is warmed through. This method helps to maintain the crust’s texture and crispness. Alternatively, you can reheat it in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes on each side to restore its crispiness, but be careful to avoid burning. Avoid using a microwave as it can make the crust soggy.

Can you make pizza crust with canned chicken?

Yes, you can make pizza crust with canned chicken. You need to make sure that the canned chicken is drained thoroughly otherwise the pizza dough will get wet and soggy, then mixing it with binding ingredients like cheese and egg to create a dough-like consistency. This mixture is then flattened into a crust shape and baked until crisp. Using canned chicken provides a convenient and quick way to create a low-carb, high-protein pizza crust that aligns with keto and other low-carb diets.

How to cook canned chicken pizza crust in the air fryer?

To cook a canned chicken pizza crust in the air fryer, first prepare the crust by mixing drained canned chicken with Parmesan cheese and beaten eggs until it forms a dough-like consistency. Flatten the mixture into a crust shape and place it in the air fryer basket. Cook at 360°F (182°C) for about 8-10 minutes or until the crust is golden and firm. Add your desired toppings, and cook for an additional few minutes to melt the cheese and heat the toppings. This method provides a quick and convenient way to achieve a crispy keto-friendly pizza crust.
