What is it with kids and pizza? My kids would eat pizza any time, day or night, whether they were hungry or not. It’s like kid cat nip.
Too bad pizza isn’t filled with the protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals that kids need for a proper, nutritious meal. It was that thought that led me to the idea of turning chicken breast into “pizza”. By adding some pepperoni, dairy-free cheese spread and pizza sauce, chicken breast is magically transported into the ‘pizza’ category, and is welcomed by the kids with opened mouths.
My son, Andrew, really loves this dish – asking for seconds every time I serve it. Now to figure out how to turn broccoli into pizza…
I’ll show you just how easy this recipe is to make in the video below! Enjoy 🙂
Here’s the recipe:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a casserole pan with olive oil.
- Wash the chicken breasts and pound out to ½ inch thickness. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Spread 2 tablespoons of the Dairy-free Cheese Spread on top of each chicken breast. Sprinkle with basil, then arrange pepperoni on top of the chicken breasts in an even layer. Roll each breast and place, seam side down, in the prepared casserole pan.
- Pour the pizza sauce over the rolled chicken breasts and sprinkle with the remaining basil. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until cooked through.
- Slice each chicken breast roll and serve warm. Enjoy!
