Paleo Chipotle Chicken Pizza

Slash carbs by piling bacon, peppers, and more atop a no-dough 'crust'.

Recipe: How to Make Paleo Chicken Pizza
 Travis Rathbone

We don’t get enough potassium—a nutrient that improves heart health and muscle function. Luckily, the tomatoes that top this paleo-friendly pizza are full of the stuff.

But that’s not the only nutritious component to this pie: Smoke-dried jalapeños can lower your risk of heart disease by lowering the cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood, while avocado is low in saturated fat and has plenty of folate, a B vitamin needed to keep nerves healthy.

Oh, and the crust? It’s not made of dough or cauliflower. It’s made of chicken. Check out how to do it.

Cook time

10 min.

  • 4 bacon slices
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Ga Ga Garlic Paleo Grind spice blend
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 1⁄2 chipotle peppers, chopped
  • 1⁄4 small red onion, sliced
  • 1⁄4 avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro, chopped

Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 450°. Pound chicken until thin and as round as you can to create pizza "crusts".

Sprinkle Ga Ga Garlic on both sides of chicken. Drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. Place chicken on pan, and bake for about 7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Remove chicken from oven, and top with tomato puree, chipotle peppers, onion, and bacon. Bake for 10 minutes.

Top with avocado and cilantro.
