How did this come about?

I love pizza and Buffalo chicken, and if you follow my website you’ll notice I have quite a few Buffalo chicken recipes. Not long ago I was trying to decide what to do with some ground chicken, and I thought it would it not be absolutely amazing to turn it into a pizza with a chicken crust?

It would be super flavorful, with hardly any carbs if any, and the perfect way to enjoy Buffalo chicken wings taste in pizza form!

Who wouldn’t love that?

🦬 What is a low carb Buffalo chicken pizza?

I’m glad you asked!

It’s a delicious chicken pizza crust with melted mozzarella cheese, crumbled blue cheese and celery as toppings. The crust is easy and basic, made with ground chicken, parmesan cheese, and spices.

A Buffalo sauce is spread over the top of the cheese and other toppings before baking. This pizza recipe was a hit at my house, and I absolutely love that I can enjoy a slice, a whole meal really, for less than ONE carb.

🍕 Is Buffalo chicken pizza keto?

Yes! This recipe is keto-friendly since it contains less than one carb per slice and can easily be adapted to fit a variety of dietary needs. I say less than one carb, because the entire pizza only has 3 carbs with one gram of dietary fiber, and there are 10 servings!

So, if you eat a slice you are really eating .3 of a carb which I would round down to ZERO.

So go ahead and enjoy it without worrying about breaking your keto diet!

Plus, the Buffalo sauce gives a great flavor that everyone will love.

🍽 Equipment needed to make Buffalo chicken pizza

What do you need to make this pizza? Well, you’ll need the usual pizza making supplies like a baking sheet, parchment paper, and something to spread it out with.

Here’s a basic list:

What is the best pizza pan?

There are several options for how to bake a pizza dough crust. If you want a classic pizzeria-style pizza, I recommend using a baking stone or preheated steel pan. For Buffalo chicken pizza with chicken crust, I use a baking stone or an 18” x 13” cookie sheet.

Because this crust is made out of meat, more liquid will come off of it than a traditional crust. For that reason, I recommend a pan with sides to catch any liquid that might drip off or put a large pan under the baking stone or another flat pan.

Chicken crust ready to bake

🔪 Instructions

Let’s begin by making the chicken crust.

🐔 Chicken pizza crust

First, start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).

Homemade pizza dough

While your oven heats up, gather together a few simple ingredients: ground chicken, sea salt, parmesan cheese, and a single egg. Once you have all these items on hand, mix them together in a large bowl until everything has combined into a uniform mixture.

Form the pizza crust

Next, take out a baking sheet and place parchment paper over it. Then spread the dough-like mixture onto the parchment paper in an even layer that is about 1/4-inch thick (about 0.6 cm).

It’s important to remember that the edges should be slightly thicker than the center so they don’t burn during baking. 

⏲ Bake time

Now pop this tray into your preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cooked through. When done correctly, you should be able to lightly press down on the crust with your fingers and feel firmness – this means that it is cooked thoroughly! 

Finally, remove your freshly baked crust from the oven and let it cool slightly while you prepare your toppings for your Buffalo chicken pizza.

Possible liquid on the pizza crust

If there happens to be any extra liquid on top of the crust then just drain it off and pat the top dry with some paper towels before adding anything else. 

Buffalo chicken pizza toppings

Once the cooked chicken crust is ready, spread 1/2 cup of keto Buffalo sauce over the surface of the pizza, making sure it’s evenly coated all the way to within 3/4 of an inch around the edge.

Next, sprinkle 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese over the top and then finish off with 1/3 cup of blue cheese crumbles and 1/2 cup of sliced celery.

Second bake

Now, place it back in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly with a golden edge.

When finished baking, let it cool for 5 minutes before cutting the pizza into slices.

This gives you just enough time to set out some extra hot sauce for those who like their pizza extra spicy!

Your guests will be thrilled as they bite into this masterpiece filled with rich flavors from creamy mozzarella and blue cheese crumbles combined with tangy and spicy Buffalo sauce – it’s truly a match made in heaven.

💭 Top tip in making this recipe

Make sure to preheat your oven properly before baking the chicken crust and use parchment paper on the baking sheet for easy removal after cooking. Enjoy! 

🥣 How to store leftover chicken pizza

Once you’ve finished making your pizza, simply store it in an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator. The pizza will last up to four days without losing its flavor or texture.

To reheat Buffalo chicken pizza with a keto-friendly crust, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and bake for 8-10 minutes or until fully heated through.
