Keto Pesto Chicken Flatbread

Is flatbread the same thing as pizza? I mean… maybe? The difference is sort of difficult to spot, if you ask me.

 

So, if you’d rather, you can call this recipe a keto pesto chicken pizza if you want as far as I’m concerned.

 

What we really love about this keto pesto chicken flatbread is how flavorful it is! The pesto, the cheese, and the chicken all combine to make a really savory and even sort of tangy flavor that is to die for.

 

The addition of fathead dough isn’t a bad thing, either. 

 

I also love that the fat head dough becomes fairly crispy when this keto flatbread is baked. The stingy cheese and tender chicken taste incredible when combined with a nice crispy crust.

 

This dish can serve double duty. It makes for a very quick and easy lunch that can be thrown together pretty quickly, but it can also serve as a main entree at dinner.

Chicken

While there are no wrong choices, we prefer to use white meat chicken for this keto pesto chicken flatbread. 

 

However, if you prefer to use dark meat, that will obviously work really well, too! 

 

There is also no wrong way to season your chicken before you place it on this flatbread. We like to bake a chicken breast with some Italian seasoning, but the options are endless.

 

Pesto

Pesto is a pretty underrated ingredient! It is full of flavor and tastes great with almost any Italian dish!

 

Once of our favorite ways to try a variety of different yummy pestos is with this really cool Mantova Organic Pesto Mix Pack.
