When it comes to pizza, we all want that yummy pepperoni and cheesy taste, without all the extra carbs that comes from the crust. So, we decided to take that classic pepperoni pizza taste, and team it up with chicken breast! It's an ooey-gooey, cheesy, pepperoni-perfect recipe that we know you're gonna love. 

What You'll Need

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, lightly pounded
  • Salt for sprinkling
  • Black pepper for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 16 slices pepperoni
  • Dried oregano for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper.  
  2. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs and garlic powder; mix well. Dip chicken into bread crumb mixture, coating evenly on both sides. Place on baking sheet.
  3.  Bake 15 minutes. Remove chicken from oven, top evenly with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni. Sprinkle lightly with oregano. Place back in oven and bake 8 to 10 minutes more or until no longer pink in center.  Serve immediately.
