Or, try this salad for a tasty lunch option!

Keto-Friendly Ranch Chicken Pizza with Bacon

Keto-Friendly Ranch Chicken Pizza with Bacon Recipe

For anyone seeking a low-carb alternative to pizza, I highly recommend this recipe—it's my personal favorite! By topping the crust with chicken, bacon, and ranch dressing, you'll create a culinary masterpiece. This dish is perfect for those following a ketogenic eating plan.
Prep Time 10 minutes

Servings 3
Calories 779 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese plus
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 6 bacon
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing
  • 1 cup chicken breast

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine 1 ½ cups of shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir well, then continue microwaving in 15 second intervals, stirring between each one, until the cheeses are fully melted. Stir until smooth.
  • Quickly stir in the egg and almond flour. Using clean hands, work the dough in the bowl until it forms a ball. It will be very sticky, so you may want to oil your hands first.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the dough in the center and use your hands to press it into a rectangle, around 9×13 inches.
  • Bake the pizza crust at 400F for 8-10 minutes, or until it just starts to brown slightly around the edges. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 350F degrees.
  • Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until it reaches your desired crispness. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels or a cooling rack.
  • Spread the ranch dressing evenly over the cooked pizza crust, leaving a small border of crust around the edges without the dressing. Add the shredded chicken over the ranch dressing.
  • Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it over the chicken.
  • Top the pizza with the remaining ¾ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Cut the pizza into 6 pieces and serve immediately.
