I saw a video the other day of a restaurant in NYC that made a chicken parmesan pizza using the chicken as a crust. I knew at that moment that I HAD to make it!

 

So I went to the store, got some supplies, and tried my hand at this delicious meal. Of course I did it the hard way. I was going to use ground chicken and flatten it out to make the crust. Unfortunately, the grocery store I went to did not have ground chicken. So I bought a food processor and some chicken breasts to make my own ground chicken. I suggest you take the easy route!

I have to say that I am pretty proud of this! I literally made this from scratch and it was one of the most delicious things that I have ever made. It's not perfect, but know that I have made it, I know what to do for next time. Check out how mine turned out before and after baking:

Here's what you will need to make your own:

  • 2 LB of ground chicken
  • 2 containers of Italian Bread Crumbs (just to be safe)
  • Seasoning for the chicken ( I used onion powder, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and Italian seasoning)
  • Flour
  • A dozen eggs
  • Pizza sauce
  • Desired shredded cheese
  • Desired toppings

How to make Chicken Parmesan Crusted Pizza:

  • Mix your chicken and spices together along with some flour
  • Flatten the chicken out into the crust. (Make sure you make it big enough to fit into your skillet to fry it up.)
  • Allow the "crust" to freeze
  • Once hardened, dip it into your egg mix then into the bread crumbs
  • Now that you have the "batter" on, you're ready to fry that bad boy up! I used a 10 inch skillet on the stove with vegetable oil.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • Remove from the skillet and apply pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings
  • Place the "pizza" on a pizza pan and bake it until the cheese has melted.
  • Cut and serve!
