Instructions

 

To make the low-carb protein crust:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425F.
  2. Take 3/4 lb boneless + skinless chicken thighs and OPTIONAL: trim off excess fat.
  3. Put the chicken thighs in a food processor and process well.
  4. Once processed, add in 1 large egg, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 cup asiago or parmesan cheese, and mix well. I also add 1 tsp turmeric and 1 tsp garlic powder, but not required.
  5. Grab a cookie sheet or pizza pan and lay down the crust with a very thin layer of the mixture. I laid down parchment paper to make the cleanup easier.
  6. Bake for 22-27 minutes, or until golden crispy. Keep an eye on the oven starting the 20 minute mark as ovens vary.

To make the rest of the pizza:

  1. Remove crust from the oven, put on your sauce + toppings, then put back in the oven for another 7-15 minutes depending on your toppings.
  2. Cut into slices/shapes of your choosing and devour!
