Chicken Parm Pizza

Chicken parmesan meets pepperoni pizza.

Enough said.

Chicken Parm Pizza
Serves 4
Recipe by Just the Tip / Inspired by Eat Live Run

Here’s what I used:

  • 4 chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded 3/4″ thickness
  • 2 cups whole wheat panko breadcrumbs, ground finely in a food processor
  • 2 egg whites, beaten until lightly frothy
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 2 ounces turkey pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 large jar marinara sauce (I love Rinaldi To Be Healthy Tomato & Basil Marinara for its yumminess and low sugar content)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what I did:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. Break out your breading station. 3 shallow dishes, from left to right: one for the flour, one for egg whites, last one for the bread crumbs.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breasts and cover them with saran wrap. Pound thin, then season both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick saute pan until it is shimmery and hot. In batches, brown the chicken on both sides, 2-3 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
  5. Remove the chicken to a baking sheet and cover with a layer of marinara, then the parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Place a layer of pepperoni on top.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until the cheese is melty.
