Mini Chicken Pizza Bites

Mini chicken pizza bites make a great snack or appetiser and best of all, they are low carb and gluten free!  They are easy to make and can be whipped up in minutes.   A recipe that even children and my husband could make too!

I was having a Sunday afternoon baking session since there was a Formula 1 race on that day and we have a strange superstition that if I bake then our driver wins.   If not we console ourselves with tasty treats so we win either way!  There was a packet of minced chicken in the fridge that I was either going to give to the dogs for a treat or make chicken burgers with.   By now the Chief Taster had a couple of glasses of wine and I thought it best to quickly feed him before he reached for another glass.  I had not intended to make a recipe but the result was so good that it made the blog!

Chicken Pizza Bites

Making these is as simple as adding mince chicken, cheese and flavourings.  Press them down in a muffin tin, cook, top and voila!  Treats all round!  I used a regular muffin tin but mini muffins would be cute and an elegant appetiser.  This recipe made 12 chicken pizza bites.  They did not last long and the Chief Taster drooled over every bite.   The upside was that it saved me additional baking of a meal that day.  Once he was full of these plus the cookies I had baked he was pretty much done for the day.  The wine may have helped too. 


I just topped the chicken pizza bites with a simple Marinara sauce and more cheese.  You could add other toppings as you wish.  Perhaps some olives and sweet peppers?  As I was pressing the mixture into the muffin tin, it occurred to me that this mixture would also make a great low carb pizza base.  It redefines the terms “Meat Lovers” pizza!  Slap some grilled chicken onto and you have a double chicken dish! 


If you don’t have a muffin tin you could make these by rolling out balls on a parchment paper lined baking tray.  Press them down into circle and you are good to go!

      About 3 to 4 cups. I’ve made this without measuring it too and it works out fine.

      It was raw chicken blitzed in the food processor. You could use raw chicken mince too.

    Sorry for the probably silly question- is the chicken raw? I think so from your comments, but I bet this would work with finely chopped cooked chicken- the egg would bind it, and the cheese would help….thanks!

      Hi, yes it is raw. You are right about the finely chopped chicken though. What a great idea!
