Begin by making pizza sauce: Add 1 tbsp chicken broth, minced garlic and onions to a small pan and sauté until the garlic begins to brown.
Add the canned tomatoes, basil, 1/4 tsp black pepper and 1/2 tsp salt to the pan. Bring to a boil.
Boil for 3-5 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove from heat and puree. Set aside
Add 4 Tablespoons water to a large skillet along with the onion slices. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the water has evaporated and the onions are beginning to brown on the bottom of the pan (about 8 minutes). Add another 4 tablespoons of water to the pan and let it cook off again, stirring occasionally. The onions should be nicely browned and caramelized.
Add the mushrooms and 1/4 cup more water to the pan and sauté until all the liquid has been absorbed. Add salt to the mix and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix ground chicken and salt . Press chicken mix into an eight inch pizza pan. Cover with plastic wrap and press again or use a rolling pin to make the chicken as flat and even as possible. Remove plastic wrap
Bake chicken crust in a 400 degree F oven for 20 minutes, chicken crust will begin to brown.
Remove from oven and spread pizza sauce over chicken crust, leaving 1/4 inch gap around the edges.
Distribute mushroom and onion mix evenly on top of sauce.
Return pizza to oven for another 5 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with nutritional yeast, serve while hot!
Caramelized shallots will add an even sweeter taste- try them as a substitute to onions.
Walden Farms tomato and basil pasta sauce works as a pizza sauce as well if you are looking to simplify this recipe and skip making the sauce from scratch.
