Chicken Pizza Crust
This recipe is a total GAME CHANGER and I'm not being overly dramatic. Seriously, move over cauliflower pizza because there's a new low carb pizza swap in town and it's LEGIT.
It sounds SO gross and weird but whatever, we do alot of weird things for the sake of our health and bodies, including but not limited to:
Pouring hot wax on our bodies and ripping it off
Sticking needles into our lips
Shoving our feet into 6 inch heels
I could go on...
Don't be weirded out by the fact that this is a pizza crust made of chicken. Guys, it's basically chicken parmesan... but healthy!
If you follow me on instagram, you may have followed along as I experimented with this strange concoction and I have to say, I was even surprised at how freaking good this came out.
This was my first time making it and this time, I made a traditional margherita style pizza but I already have dreams of turning this into:
BBQ Chicken Pizza (is chicken on chicken too much?)
White Truffle Pizza
Salad pizza! (It's basically like the reverse of chicken paillard)
OMG I need to stop now because I need to go get another slice.
