Ingredients for bbq chicken pizza

For the crust:

  • 1 ½ Cup Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz. Cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 Cup Almond flour
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 Egg

For the topping:

  • ¼ Cup + 2 Tbsp. Sugar free BBQ sauce
  • 1 Cup Shredded rotisserie chicken
  • ⅛ Red onion thinly sliced
  • ¼ Cup Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ Cup Mild cheddar cheese shredded
  • Chopped parsley for garnish

How to make keto bbq chicken pizza

To make, first gather all of your ingredients in once place then preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Combine 1 ½ cups of mozzarella cheese and 2 oz. cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the cheese at 30 second intervals until it is melted and mixed completely. 

In a bowl, combine the almond flour, garlic powder, baking powder and Italian seasoning. 

Add the cheese mixture to the dry ingredients, and knead with your hands until completely incorporated. 

Blend the egg into the cheese and almond flour mixture until smooth. 

Place the dough into the freezer to set for 15 minutes. 

Press the dough into a rustic pizza shape to your desired thickness on a parchment lined baking sheet. You can wet your hands slightly with water to keep the dough from sticking to them as much. 

Place the dough into the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of your dough. You want it to be a very light golden brown in this pre-bake stage. 

Remove the dough from the oven and top with ¼ cup of BBQ sauce. 

Layer ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese and ¼ cup cheddar cheese on the pizza crust over the BBQ sauce layer. 

Mix together the shredded chicken and another 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce in a bowl, and then place the chicken on the pizza. 

Top the pizza with the sliced red onions. 

Bake the pizza for another 10-20 minutes until the cheese has melted, and the crust is cooked to your liking. 

Top with chopped parsley for garnish if desired.

Slice and serve warm.

How to store 

Store this bbq chicken pizza by stacking the slices one on top of the other, making sure to place wax paper between each slice. Once you’re done stacking, wrap in plastic wrap, place in an air tight container and refrigerate.
