Zero Carbs, Zero Allergens, Delicious Chicken Pizza Crust

Want a pizza with more protein? With no gluten or other allergens? With zero carbs? Meet the Chicken Pizza Crust from Z C Lyfe Foods. The Z C stands for zero carbs.

As January 5th is National Keto Day, it’s a perfect choice for our Top Pick Of The Week. But you don’t have to eat a keto diet to adore these pizza crusts (there’s more about the keto diet below).

The crusts don’t taste like chicken. The taste sensation is crispy. They’re as thin as a tortilla (and also able to be used for burritos, chilaquiles [recipe #3 below], nachos, and other creations).

As previously mentioned, the guilt-free Chicken Crust Pizzas are zero-carb. They’re also grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, optionally (depending on your toppings) dairy-free, and high-protein.

The pizza crusts are made with just four ingredients: chicken breast, olive oil, salt, and spices.

There are no fillers, binders, nuts, or soy. The crusts are the very definition of all-natural, allergen-free, and diet-friendly.

For people who have been avoiding carbs and grains, they’re way more interesting than cauliflower crusts.

The 8″ diameter personal-size frozen plain crusts are meant for your own toppings (photo #2).

Each plain crust has 220 calories, 41g protein 5g Fat, 0g total carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugar, 0g sugar alcohol, and 0g net carbs.

Or, you can purchase topped pizzas that are ready-to-bake and eat (photos #8 and #9).

Z C LYFE is the first packaged-food brand to develop a pizza crust using premium chicken breasts as the base ingredient. They are well worth your while to try.

  • Here’s a store locator.
  • You can also purchase them from the company’s website.
  • As a grocery item, the crusts are not inexpensive, about $10 per crust.
  • In terms of gustatory enjoyment for people with dietary restrictions, they’re worth it!


To make a pizza, simply place the plain crust on a sheet pan and bake it for 6-8 minutes. Then take it out, add your toppings, and bake it again for another 6-8 minutes. A delicious pizza awaits.

Alternatively, the ready-to-bake pizzas (next section) require no pre-baking and are ready in 15 minutes.

In addition to plain crusts, there are currently two flavors that are topped and ready to bake:

  • Beef and Cheese Pizza: chicken crust topped with tomato sauce, seasoned beef topping, and mozzarella cheese (photo #9).
  • Buffalo Chicken Pizza: chicken crust topped with Buffalo sauce, Buffalo chicken breast strips, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Two new flavors will be launching soon: Beef Bacon and Jalapeño, and a Cheese pizza to enjoy plain or with a few of your favorite toppings.

2. CUT a large onion in half and then in half again, and slice. Melt one tablespoon of butter in a pan, add the onions, and stir for about 20 minutes until caramelized.

3. PRE-COOK the Zero Carb Chicken Crust at 450°F for 8 minutes. Top with the caramelized onions and other ingredients of choice, ending with the mozzarella on top. Return to the oven until the mozzarella melts.

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.

It has become popular as a way to lose weight, but it was originally developed to help manage epilepsy. It also may help people with heart disease, certain brain diseases, and even acne. Here’s more about it.
