I had not made this in WAY too long. Back when I was in college, and would pretend to be domestic about once a week, my mom gave me this recipe. If I am remembering correctly it was from one of her co-workers or friends.
Pretty much this combines so many of my favorite things, garlic, cheese, chicken and pizza. An added bonus, it’s loaded with veggies, so in my book, that makes it healthy.
This tasty pizza could be made on your own homemade whole wheat crust, on a pre-made crust, or on these cute little individual flat bread thingers that I happened to find at the grocery store this week.
Here is the recipe: (feel free to add any other veggies you think would taste yummy)
1 pizza crust (this time I used 2 individual flat breads instead)
1 package of part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
1 chicken breast, cut into tiny bite size pieces
2 tsp olive oil
4-6 gloves of garlic, minced
1 zucchini, sliced
1/2 of a large onion, sliced
1 bunch of broccoli, cut, or you can use frozen broccoli thawed
1 red pepper sliced
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with foil, and lightly spray with olive oil.
2. As oven is heating cut up veggies and chicken.
3. Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in a pan. Add half of the minced garlic, and all veggies stirring frequently until they are softening. Remove veggies from pan, set them aside in a bowl.
4. In the same pan (reducing dishes) add 1 tsp of olive oil, other half of garlic and cut up chicken breast. Cook stirring frequently until chicken is cooked through. Add the veggies back to the pan and mix.
5. Cook pizza crust as directed. If using an already baked crust you may skip this step.
6. Top pizza crust with 1/2 of the cheese. Bake in oven at 425 until cheese is melted. About 3-5 minutes.
7. Remove the pizza and top with chicken mixture and remaining cheese. Bake about 10 more minutes.
8. Add ground pepper if you would like. Cut pizza into slices if needed and enjoy!
P.S. If you look closely at the pictures you will see that it already has a bite taken out….WHOOPS! Also, makes great left overs for lunch.
