Who doesn’t love pizza?! But you may not love all the fat and calories. This slimmed-down version involves replacing the carb-heavy crust with pounded chicken. Load it up with sauce and your choice of veggies and enjoy!
- Prep time
- Total Time
- 4 five-ounce skinless chicken breasts (or cutlets)
- 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce *
- 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and coat the baking sheet with oil spray.
Pound the chicken breasts very thin using a mallet or heavy can and arrange the chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until fully cooked.
Sauté the bell pepper and onion in a skillet coated with oil spray over medium-high heat until soft and browned, about five minutes.
Top each cooked chicken breast with 2 tablespoons marinara sauce, ¼ of the sautéed vegetables and 2 tablespoons cheese. Place the chicken back in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
