We heard about ground turkey pizza crust from a family member and had to give it a try. It is a great alternative to regular pizza crust and is low carb (yay!). Making the crust thin enough is important, as it will break apart if it is too thick. You will see a lot of liquid when it is baking—it is fine and to be expected. The liquid will eventually dry up on the baking sheet or pizza pan. I like to line the baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper and use A LOT of cooking spray. It can get stick to the pan and make flipping the crust difficult. Ground Turkey Pizza Crust doesn’t taste like regular pizza crust, but takes on a unique experience of its own. It tasted similar to a meatball when we made it with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni—and that was a good thing! It delivers a lot of flavor that blends well with traditional pizza toppings.
