Pizza Chicken Meal Prep Recipe

You may not be able to eat pizza every day, but you definitely can enjoy this Pizza Chicken Meal Prep!

Pizza Chicken. You’re looking at us funny, we can feel it. Hear us out, because this meal prep recipe just might blow your mind (and your tastebuds!). Let’s be honest, we would all eat pizza every day if we could right? But all those calories and empty carbs are unfortunately not a great complement to your killer gym workout. But we’re big believers in everything in moderation here at MPOF! So what’s a pie lover to do? Pizza Chicken, of course! This meal prep recipe is all of the things you love about pizza: rich tomato sauce, perfect Italian spices, delicious runny cheese, even mini pepperoni. But instead of carb-heavy crust, we’re putting all of that goodness on top of a perfectly cooked chicken breast!

There used to be nothing better than a tender, juicy chicken breast straight out of the oven. But then we made that tender, juicy chicken breast into Chicken Pizza- and, um, that is definitely better. Because this homemade Pizza Chicken recipe comes together in no time at all (only 26 minutes from start to finish), it’s quick enough for a weeknight family dinner and has definitely become part of the regular rotation in the MPOF houses. Plus it’s kid approved, and gluten free to boot! Serve yours on top of a fresh mixed green salad or with a side of steamed veggies for a nutritionally complete meal. We love ours with broccoli (shown below)- the crunch of a hearty vegetable is the perfect complement to rich, gooey Pizza Chicken.

So when your craving for pizza kicks in (sometimes daily for us!) you can satisfy it with this protein-packed, low carb meal prep recipe that can be made for less than $4! Check out the video below to see for yourself how easy it is to put this Pizza Chicken together.

  1. Hello, first I’d like to thank you for sharing this super tasty recipe qith us. What I need to know is how long do you keep the chicken in the oven until chicken is done cooking (after adding the pepperoni)? Thanks!

  2. How many calories do you think this is per meal?

  3. I used thicker breasts so I adjusted the cook time. I cooked them at 425 naked for 15 minutes, then added the sauce, pepperoni, spices (I also added garlic salt), and cheese. I put them in for another 5 minutes and they came out perfectly. They’re moist and flavorful

  4. 8g of carbs or net carbs?

    Can this be frozen? Would I freeze before or after cooking?

  6. Can you tell me why I cannot freeze it? I freeze chicken all the time when I food prep. Thanks.

    • Hi Sherry- we do not recommend freezing this because the cheese and pepperoni do not taste good when reheated from frozen. However, if you give it a try and find that you enjoy it, please let us know so that we can share with our readers.

  7. How long did you leave in for step 7?

    • Hi Missy – It should be approx 6-8 min depending on the size of the chicken breast. You want to make sure the thickest part of the chicken is 165 degrees to ensure it’s fully cooked

  8. What is the net carbs?

    • Hi Ashley, Unfortunately, we did not calculate the fiber on the recipe. Carbs – fiber = net carbs. However, you can very easily load this into your nutrition tractor to get the count!

  9. How would people recommend I reheat these?
    Thanks.
