Keto Pizza- Grilled Chicken & Spinach

Our keto pizza recipe has the most delicious white sauce with grilled chicken & spinach on the perfect fathead crust, meal prep or any time. grilled chicken spinach pizza on pan.

Keto Pizza is Life 

A keto friendly pizza that will satisfy any craving and have you forgetting that the crust is not traditional, it is my go to pizza. Most of the ingredients are naturally keto approved like the tender chicken, fresh spinach, and ooey-gooey cheese. You could even add regular tomato sauce to this crust instead of cooking the white sauce to save time. The crust is made from the famous fathead dough so carbs are drastically cut to almost nothing. 

Grilled Chicken and Spinach White Pizza

Our white sauce is what puts this keto pizza over the top. It's Cheesy comfort food greatness and only 2.5 carbs per serving. Butter and parmesan coat the chicken and spinach before it's topped with more cheese. You can't go wrong. 

What is Fathead Dough

Fathead dough is a very popular keto and low carb approved dough used in everything from crust to cookies. The idea behind fathead dough is to use melted mozzarella as the gluten to hold the almond or coconut flour together for less crumbling and even a chewy texture. It is pure genius. We have used it in many recipes here on the site.

Can I Double This Fathead Pizza Recipe 

You are welcome to make as much or as little of this fathead pizza recipe. If you have a larger family you can easily make a handful of pizzas to slice and serve everyone. This is best when served fresh, so I always recommend making it to serve what you plan to eat.

How To Reheat Leftover Pizza 

What I have found is if you place a leftover slice of pizza in a skillet on the stove and turn it on low and let the pizza slowly reheat it helps keep the crispy texture of the crust. If you do the microwave it will make the crust a bit soggy. Or you could place on a pizza stone and toss in the oven and reheat that way as well. 

A low carb pizza crust that you can pile high with your favorite toppings. This fathead pizza crust is versatile and you can use any of your favorite toppings if you end up wanting to create other flavors. Just make sure you use cooked chicken or other meats when piling on pizza. Since the cook time is so short.

  1. Hi -- this looks great and we'll be making it this week. I don't see the type of cheese or amount listed in the ingredients. Can you let us know what you used and how much? Also, will that change the nutrition numbers? Thanks! 🙂

    • Hi Denise
      The nutrition numbers are based on using 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella.
      I apologize that was missed! I have made an edit.
      Thank you so much.

    • Hi Zenda,

      No , half & half is the cream used. It is a cream/milk combination. Part skim shredded mozzarella is used. You can use whichever cheese you like, it will just alter the nutrition facts.

      Thank you!
