Don’t let the ingredient list detour you. Crust and sauce are basically two steps: Combine and mix.

Shortcuts

  • DON’T skip the sauté veggie part, raw veggies sweat while cooking and can make pizza soggy 
  • Chicken crust can be your base for any pizza, white sauce too! 
  • If you want to buy a jar of pizza sauce you like, all good. But I encourage you to try the recipe below. It is one bowl, pop in the ingredients and stir.

Equipment

  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Food processor

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts (6‐8 oz)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c mozzarella (shredded)
  • 1/4 c coconut flour
  • 2 t dried basil
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t pepper

Sauce

  • 1 T crushed red pepper
  • 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 2 t basil
  • 1 t sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 t t salt
  • 1/2 t t pepper

Toppings

  • 1 T olive oil (for sautéing veggies)
  • 1 bunch green onion
  • 1 jalapeño (thinly sliced)
  • 1 c white mushrooms (sliced)
  • As much pepperoni as desired (layer full pizza)
  • 4-5 c mozzarella (shredded)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Crust

  • Place ALL ingredients under the CRUST section in the food processor with the metal blade. Pulverize until well blended.
  • Put a large piece of parchment paper over a large cookie sheet.
  • Spread meat with a spoon or a spatula type knife on the paper making a large oval, smooth on top, looks like pizza crust in shape. About 1/3″ thick, consistent so cooks evenly.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.

Sauce

  • Whisk together all sauce ingredients.
  • Spread over the baked crust.

Toppings

  • Sauté veggies in a little olive oil – much tastier and the vegetables won’t release as much water on pizza once baked.
  • Place on top of pizza – reserving oil in pan.
  • Layer on lots of pepperoni, then veggies, then the cheese.
  • Bake until cheese has browned around the edges, and slightly in the center.
  • Remove from the oven. Let rest for 5‐10 minutes before cutting and serving!
  • Enjoy!
