Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast raw, grind or process into ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese you want the real slivers of cheese, not the powdery stuff in the can.
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning We love the Italian Seasoning from The Pampered Chef.
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup prepared pizza sauce We have found that Walmart's Great Value brand pizza sauce has the least amount of added sugar, if you're looking to limit that.
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • Pizza Toppings We like pepperoni and mushrooms, but you can use whatever toppings you like.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil sprayed with non stick vegetable cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the ground chicken with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, ¼ cup mozzarella cheese, Italian Seasoning, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  • Scoop the chicken mixture onto the parchment paper and form it into a flat rectangle. Cover it with plastic wrap and use a rolling pin to evenly roll it into a rectangle. Remove the plastic wrap and bake until golden, about 12 to 15 minutes. (It will shrink.) Keep the oven hot.
  • Top the chicken crust with sauce and sprinkle with ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, ¾ cup mozzarella cheese. Layer on the toppings and season with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and more Italian seasoning.
  • Put the pizza back into hot oven and bake until melted and bubbly, about 6 to 10 minutes.
  • I prefer to allow the pizza to cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving, but you really don't have to do that.

Notes

A bariatric serving is 1/8 of the finished pizza. Joe (a normal eater) eats 1/4 of the finished pizza for his supper.
