The “meatza” takes the low carb pizza genre to a whole new level! This version uses an Italian bruschetta-like topping.
The chicken base brings a massive dose of bioavailable protein along with vitamins B3 and B5, choline, potassium and zinc.
Tomato lifts vitamin A and C, while the nutritional yeast complements the flavour and boosts vitamins B1, B2 and B6.

- 200 g (7 oz) ground chicken or turkey
- A pinch of sea salt
- A few grinds of black pepper (omit for AIP)
- 1 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
- 1 tsp pastured gelatin (or 1/2 small egg)
- 1 tsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 100 g (3.5 oz) buffalo mozzarella
- 10 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed
- Pinch of sea salt
- A few grinds of black pepper to taste
- Pre-heat oven to 200°C/392°F (bake)
- Line a pizza tray with baking paper.
- In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the tomato paste. Mix until fully combined and form into a ball.
- Place the ball on the lined tray and use your fingers to gently spread out to a pizza shape, making it as thin as you can.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Check on the crust. If the chicken has released a lot of water, carefully drain the fluid into the sink. Bake for another 10 minutes, flip the meatza over and bake for 5 more minutes.
- Spread on the tomato paste and cook for a further 5 minutes.
- While the meatza base is cooking combine the topping ingredients and let sit together.
- Remove from the oven and top with the fresh tomato and mozzarella mixture.
