Fake Pizza

Posted by terrepruitt on July 19, 2022

You may have seen social media posts with “pizza” made with “crust” that is made from chicken. I know, it is not really pizza and it is not really crust, but it is really good. If you have seen my post about pizza dough you will understand why I love this . . . I CAN ACTUALLY DO IT. I am miserable at making pizza crust. I love pizza, but pizza dough and I don’t get along. Even when it is premade and all I have to do is roll it out. I am better at handling the dough than I was, but nowhere near good. Even my chicken crust was not that pretty. But it was tasty!

_____________________________________________________

Chicken “Crust”

2 cans of chicken (about 4 cups cooked and shredded)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt*
1 cup parmesan cheese

*I want to CUT the salt down

400°F 25 mins

I drained the chicken. I scrambled the eggs separately just because I wanted to, then mixed everything in with the chicken.

I put it on a parchment-paper-lined pan, and spread it out to as thick as I wanted it. Then baked it in the oven for 25 minutes at 400°F.

Top with your favorite toppings and put back in the oven . . . . to melt the cheese or cook the toppings, if necessary.

_____________________________________________________

I put pizza sauce, mozzarella, and cooked sausage on ours. I think any pizza topping will work.

Some people might not be able to tell the difference if you don’t tell them. But some will.  It was not the kind of “pizza” you can pick up and eat with one hand . . . although, one video I saw it showed that, mine did not do that.

I think since it is NOT actually pizza with a bread dough crust any number of flavors mixed in with chicken and then with toppings to “match” would be good. Taco seasoning mixed in then top it with tomatoes, cheese, and olives would be good. A Greek themed one. So many things could be done, just like you can do so many things with “real” pizza.  This is just another way to have something different for dinner.  A way to get that pizza-like taste without the crust.

What do you think?
