Carnivore Pizza Crust
- 1 lb extra lean ground chicken
- 1 cup ground pork rinds
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp each of salt and pepper
- Carnivore: Pepperoni and cheese is perfect!
- Keto: Add sauce, cheese and favorite toppings
- Dairy Free: Add sauce, Nutritional Yeast and favorite toppings
- Preheat oven to 425. Lay parchment paper on 2 large rimmed baking sheets.
- With a fork, mix all ingredients well in a large bowl.
- Place ground chicken mixture onto a sheet of wax paper. (I like to divide in half and make 2 pizzas) Place another sheet of wax paper on top and form to desired shape with your hands.
- Take a rolling pin and roll out as flat as you can. Peel wax paper off and carefully turn over the chicken crust onto the baking sheet. You can repair and trim edges with a spatula.
- Bake at 425 for about 25 minutes or until edges start to curl and turn brown.
- Remove from oven and put oven on Broil.
- Place desired toppings on Pizza.
- Broil for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted and toppings are browned the way you want.
NOTE: Nutritional Info is for crust only. Be sure to take into account what you put on top of your pizza!

I forgot the pork rinds at the grocery! How many eggs do I add as a binder?
The pork rinds are key to making this a crispy pizza crust. You can bind this with probably only one egg but it’s not going to be the same result. Just letting you know!
When you say “wax paper” did you mean parchment paper? I can’t in my mind see wax paper holding up @ 425°. That’s just me, I’m not a cook by any means.
My Bad, I read it again. Sorry about that. I obviously don’t read very well either. 😆😆
Thanks for spotting that! Yes it should be parchment for the baking sheet but I did use wax paper for the rolling out as it is less sticky. So I need to better explain that I think!
just curious about what size sheet pan you are using. I am trying to determine how thin the crust needs to be
I use the 11 x 17 large sheets. You can also watch me make it on youtube! You want it quite thin! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14NJkAMEklc
This sounds really great but if I am allergic to pork and can’t se the pork rinds is there something else that would work for a binder? Maybe eggs, xanthan gum? As long as it turns out similar, doesn’t have to be exact. Thank you for your time.
Yes, you can bind with something else like egg or mozzarella cheese. I like the pork rinds because they give it that crunch, but those other things would work to hold it together.
My wife is seriously allergic to pork. Pork Rinds do not effect her. Maybe just taste them and see? Just the skin not actually pork.
QUESTION: Is that taking 1 cup of pork rinds and grinding it into whatever amount? or is that just keep adding pork rinds to the food processor until you come up with 1 cup of ground crumbles? thanks for the help!
I always have a jar of ground up pork rinds on my counter. This would be measuring out 1 cup of already ground pork rinds.
So I figured out that it takes 6 to 8 cups of pork rinds to get 1 cup of ground pork rinds. This recipe is fantastic! Most filling and satisfying recipe I’ve ever made! It’s tasty and also sturdy enough that there os no flopping of you only hold the crust edge with one hand! THANK YOU!
That’s good info, I buy the giant barrel of pork rinds from Costco so was never sure how many. BUT so worth it, when you can pick up a piece of pizza and that CRUNCH! I always preferred thin crust pizza anyways, so this is perfect for me!
Very good. ,I’ve made fat patties and turned it into a keto chicken parm. Very quick and no need for breading ..very good as well
