Low-Carb Chicken Alfredo Flatbread Pizza
Peace! I wish I had something really insightful to say about this chicken alfredo flatbread pizza other than the fact that it will make your taste buds somersault, but I’m too busy stretched out on the couch with my jeans button undone and wondering if I need a bigger t-shirt. I’m that full. It was that good.
Here’s what I used:
1 lb. Riced Cauliflower (Prepackaged because no one had time for that today)
1 Medium Egg
1 Cup Fresh Spinach Leaves
2 ½ Cups Mozzarella Cheese
Black Olives to Taste
¼ Cup Turkey Bacon Crumbles
Sun Dried Tomatoes to Taste
½ lb. Grilled Chicken Breast Sliced
8 oz. Mushrooms (Sliced)
½ Cup Alfredo Sauce
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Garlic to Taste
This dish is incredibly simple. The most involved part of course is making the crust. I poured the riced cauliflower into a large, glass, microwave-safe bowl. I microwaved the cauliflower for about 5-6 minutes. While still hot, I added mozzarella cheese to the bowl. I stirred the cheese into the cauliflower mixture making sure that it was evenly distributed. The amount of cheese you use will vary. I started with a half cup, and added more as I stirred. You want to make sure there’s enough cheese for the cauliflower to stick together without a lot of loose pieces because this is what will hold it together. Once the mixture cooled a little, I added one medium egg and stirred.
Next, I put the cauliflower mixture on a parchment paper-lined baking tray and formed into a rectangular shape to create my flatbread. I pressed with my hands until it reached my desired thickness (or thinness). I baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
After the crust finished baking, I removed it from the oven and added a light coating of olive oil before topping it with the remaining ingredients. Your preferred quantities of each topping will vary, no doubt.
Finally, I returned my pizza to the oven and allowed to bake (at 400) for 15 minutes.
Listen: the most difficult part of this entire process was trying not to eat the entire thing as SOON as it came out the oven. It smelled good, it looked good, and it was pretty much irresistible. You should probably cook this. Like, now.
