Chicken Parm Pizza

Chicken Parm Pizza




Facebook made me so hungry last week I completely changed my recipe plans. I saw a video of a restaurant that combined two of my favorite dishes. Chicken Parm and Pizza! OMG! I had to have it! And the fun part is that the chicken is the crust! I knew I had to make my version and share it with my Cookies.

I chose to make two personal sized pizzas to make it easier to fry. But, if you have a large fryer, feel free to make one big pie! I suggest freezing the chicken crust for at least 4 hrs. You can even make extra and freeze them until you’re ready to use them. 

I absolutely love Chicken Parmesan. I have to make sure that every component of the dish is well seasoned. This pizza version is no different. I season the chicken and grind it up in my food processor. You can also just buy ground chicken. I like to do my own. I also season the eggs. We want a super flavorful pizza!

And the cheese!! Do NOT forget to use Parmesan cheese!!! So, many Chicken Parmesan recipes load up on the mozzarella, but forget the Parm. Don’t do it! If you can, please buy fresh cheese and shred them yourselves. I can’t stress how much better the quality is. I think this is my new favorite pizza! I hope you enjoy it too.

Love,
