Attractive enough to eat!  Seriously, this looks great and tastes great! Lovely lunch to serve to your high-carb girlfriends to brag about your yummy low-carb lifestyle.

13/cups cooked diced chicken (425 mL)
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/cup mayonnaise (75 mL)
1/cup Greek yogurt (60 mL)
2 tbsp minced fresh parsley (30 mL)
2 tsp Dijon mustard (10 mL)
11/cups grated Swiss cheese (300 mL)
1/tsp salt (0.5 mL)
2 cups shredded lettuce (500 mL)
  (your choice)
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
Miracle Dough:
2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese (500 mL)
2 tbsp butter, melted (30 mL)
1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 (250 mL)
1 egg, fork beaten
1/tsp onion salt (1 mL)
1/tsp granulated garlic powder (1 mL) 

In medium bowl, combine chicken, bacon and 3/cup grated Swiss cheese .  In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, parsley and mustard.  Stir into chicken mixture to combine well.

Miracle Dough:  In microwave oven in microwaveable bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese.  This took 2 minutes in my 1200 Watt microwave oven. Remove with oven gloves (be very careful!).  Pour melted butter over top of cheese. Place Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2 on top. In small bowl, beat egg with fork.  Add onion salt and garlic powder; whisk with fork.  Add to Mozzarella cheese mixture. Stir with a fork to form a dough ball, adding a little coconut flour to help the dough become soft and malleable.  Knead slightly to form a ball.

Place half dough on parchment paper and cover with plastic.  Roll out into a 10-inch (25 cm) circle.    Repeat with the remaining dough.  Cut each circle in half and divide each of those halves into 6 triangles.  Place the triangles in a big circle on a large, greased pizza pan, with the pointed edges of the triangular pieces of dough facing the outside circumference of the pizza pan and the wider parts overlapping, leaving an open circle in the center.  Place the chicken mixture on the overlapping dough close to the open vacant circle in the center. Sprinkle with remaining grated Swiss cheese and some chopped tomatoes. Fold the pieces over the filling, tucking them in a bit, but don’t worry too much as it will keep its shape.

Bake 20 minutes.  Loosen underneath the ring with a metal spatula and place back in the oven on top rack (for browning the top of the ring), and position the part that is least brown towards the back of the oven.  Bake another 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden in color (not dark).  Carefully remove the ring to a serving platter and in the center place the lettuce and remaining chopped tomatoes.  Serve and enjoy!

MIRACLE DOUGH TIPS: - Please note:USE BOB'S RED MILL COCONUT FLOUR FOR ALL MY RECIPES AND ESPECIALLY FOR THIS MIRACLE DOUGH - COCONUT FLOURS DIFFER GREATLY IN THEIR ABILITY TO ABSORB MOISTURE!  There are several variations of this kind of dough on the internet, but mine is different to all the others out there.  I am getting very adept with this dough.  Use a fork to make it come together.  At first it looks impossible (might even have strings of cheese in it), but keep mixing and then turn out on a cutting board.  Knead for a couple of minutes, adding a bit of coconut flour as needed to make a lovely elastic dough. The more coconut flour one can add (usually about 1 tbsp or a bit more), the more bread-like the dough becomes (more substantial).  Since coconut flour is mostly fiber, you're not really adding much in the way of carbs, spread over several servings.  I put the dough ball on parchment paper and cover the dough with plastic wrap and using a  rolling pin (sometimes I use my special small one for pie dough), roll it out with ease.  If at any time the dough becomes resistant to rolling, nuke it approximately 10  to 20 seconds and away you go again!

Here is how it looks while mixing with a fork - looks impossible, right?  Don't worry, keep mixing!

Here is a pic of the dough ball - lovely, soft and malleable!!

Mozzarella cheeses that I have successfully used with the Miracle Dough and The Sweet Miracle Pastry Dough as well.  I get mine from Price Smart in Central (technically South America) America, which is the same as Costco in the United States.

I tried this one a couple of times

I usually grate my own cheese using my 20-year old Braun food processor, which has a ton of gadgets - this is the cheese I use most often - looks like it might be very similar to the one above, however, I think they sometimes add something to their grated cheese to help it last longer.  I could be wrong.  CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO SEE A BIGGER IMAGE.
