"The secret to this recipe is a SCREAMING HOT Preheated Oven, otherwise your chicken crust will steam and there will be lots of liquid and not a lot of browning. (I take the pan out at 12 minutes and drain any juices, then return it to the oven until it's nice and brown. THIS RECIPE IS OFF THE CHAIN! This is a great recipe for those who have had Bariatric Surgery, but everyone loves it!"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper or foil, sprayed with non-stick vegetable cooking spray.

Step 3

In a medium bowl combine the ground chicken with 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1/4 cup Mozzarella, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon oregano.

Step 4

Mound the chicken mixture onto the parchment, and pat into flat rectangle or disc.

Step 5

Cover with plastic wrap, and evenly press or roll the chicken into a 7x10" rectangle or round. I use a rolling pin!

Step 6

Remove the plastic wrap, and roast until golden, 12-15 minutes, draining any liquid that may be in the pan at 12 minutes, then putting it back in if it's not brown enough.

Step 7

Smear crust with sauce, scatter with 1/4 cup Parmesan, 3/4 cup Mozzarella, layer with toppings, and season with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes and 1/4 teaspoon oregano.

Step 8

Pop back into hot oven, and cook until melted and bubbly, 6-10 minutes.

Step 9

Remove from oven, and sprinkle with chopped basil.

Oops...Wrong recipe... I made a couple of your recipes and put the wrong review with this one, so here goes... This pizza is so easy to make and we just love it. I made one with thinly sliced tomatoes, black olives and Feta cheese, and the other one with extra cheese, onions, pepperoncini slices, and black olives. Both were delicious

I can't tell you how many times I have made these pizzas since I found the recipe! It helps me to keep my sugars down not having all those carbs in the crust. You help me to enjoy all the foods I love, that I can now eat, just in a different way. Bravo!
