ChicZza – Chicken Crust Pizza 鸡萨 – 鸡肉皮比萨

Chicken Meat as Pizza Crust? Here is how

Out of the blue, I came up with this idea and thought why not make pizza crust with chicken meat? And without any detail planning I just went ahead to the market next morning and buy whatever ingredients that I thought that would make it happen, and it did happen! Here is how I did it!

Lead Time : 75 minutes

Serve 3

Ingredients – Chicken Crust

  • 3 pcs of Boneless Whole Chicken Leg
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of paprika powder
  • A heap of Black Pepper
  • 2 nos of Egg

Procedure

  1. Get the butcher to remove the chicken’s bones for you.
  2. Place the boneless chicken, skin side down on a chopping board, place a generous piece of cling wrap over it. Use a rolling pin or meat pounder to flatten the chicken.
  3. Marinate the chicken with salt, paprika powder, black pepper and 1 nos of egg.
  4. Grease a round shaped baking tray.
  5. Place the flattened boneless chicken, skin side down, in the greased baking tray while trying to form a round-pizza-like-shape.
  6. Place another slightly smaller round tray on top of the chicken.
  7. Add water into the smaller round tray to weigh down the chicken.
  8. Bake the chicken in a preheated oven at 230°C for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove chicken from oven.
  10. Gently twist the top round tray and lift it up to remove it.
  11. Strain the chicken broth into another container.
  12. Add 1 nos of egg into the chicken broth. Whisk the egg and pour the egg back into the chicken, filling all the cracked gap.
  13. Back into the oven at 230°C for 15 minutes.
  14. Remove from oven and add toppings.

ChicZza Toppings

You can add any sort of sauces – tomato sauce, cream sauce, pesto sauce, anything you like and also any fillings – onion, mushroom, pepperoni, ham, chicken, lamb, beef, etc and top it up with cheese, basil leave, olives, etc. Basically, here is the structure for a pizza;

  1. Pizza crust – here we will be using ChicZza Crust (Chicken crust)
  2. Sauce – Tomato sauce, cream sauce, pesto, you name it. In my video, I’ve used tomato sauce.
  3. Fillings – It could be mushroom, capsicum, olives, beef, ham, smoked meat, basil leaves, etc. I’ve used green capsicum and shiitake mushroom.
  4. Toppings – The usual topping is cheese – Parmesan cheese, feta cheese, mozzarella, cheddar. I happen to have extra Parmesan cheese powder in my fridge, so I just use them.
