For crust:

  • cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan grated
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

For filling:

  • 10 oz chicken breast diced
  • 2 oz button mushrooms sliced
  • 1 sprig celery sliced
  • 1 tbsp onion chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp garlic flakes
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste black


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Melt a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced chicken breast and cook for 5 minutes or until lightly golden, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of butter to the same frying pan. Add chopped onion and cook until translucent. Add sliced mushrooms, celery, garlic flakes and cook for 5 minutes.
  • When mushrooms are slightly golden, pour in chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Then add heavy cream and paprika and give it a good stir.
  • Return chicken to the pan, cover with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
  • Microwave shredded cheese for 1 minute (or you can use double boiler instead). Add almond flour, parmesan, cream cheese, basil, black pepper and stir until smooth.
  • Roll the dough into a circle between 2 sheets of parchment paper.
  • Transfer the filling to a pie mold, top with a rolled dough and fold it down around the edges. With a sharp knife, make 2 small slits on top and transfer to the oven for 17-20 minutes.
  • When ready, allow to cool for a few minutes and serve.
