Veggie Supreme Pizza Chicken Meal Prep will load you up with veggies, but on pizza! Can't get a much healthier meal prep than that! We love this for lunch or dinner, or both.
This veggie supreme pizza chicken meal prep is pizza, but not as you might normally know it. But you know if you're following a keto diet, pizza is really tough. And there's something really specific and nagging about a pizza craving. (We know, it's the cheese, right?) So, whether you are new to keto or you are just looking to up your protein but don't want to abandon the concept of pizza, we have just the trick. Chicken serves as the base for this "pizza," which is topped with sliced peppers and onions, along with olives and cheese. This delicious meal prep is keto, gluten-free, and low carb. Yay!
Veggie Supreme Pizza Chicken Meal Prep Ingredients
- 1 pound chicken breast, pounded thin
- ½ cup pizza sauce
- 3 oz mozzarella cheese
- 2 ounces feta
- ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup black olives, thinly sliced
- ½ cup green, yellow, and/or red peppers, thinly sliced

How to Make Veggie Supreme Pizza Chicken Meal Prep
You'll start with the chicken breasts, which you'll season with salt and pepper and top with pizza sauce in a casserole dish or on a rimmed baking sheet. Then, the chicken "pizza" bakes in the oven for about ten minutes. At that point, you'll take the dish out of the oven and then add all the veggies, and the cheese. Return the dish to the oven and bake a little longer. While all of that is happening steam some veggies if you want even more veggies with this healthy meal prep.
How to Store and Serve Veggie Pizza Chicken Meal Prep
We love making this veggie chicken pizza meal prep because it reheats well in the oven—just cover the chicken loosely with foil so nothing burns. But shhhh, here's a secret: It's also kind of good cold. I mean, if you like cold pizza, you'll probably not eating this dish cold. Truth! Transfer to meal prep containers and serve accordingly.
You can also totally freeze this pizza chicken meal prep with no ill effects. Honestly! The cheese might need some freshening up after it's defrosted and reheated, but no one ever really said no to more cheese, right?
Substitutions and Alterations
You can really vary this any way you like. We recommend sticking with chicken, but you could use steak if you wanted.
Vary the cheeses you use on top. A combination of cheddar, mozzarella, and/or Monterey jack works great. We like feta here because it gives this dish a bit of salty tang.
Switch up the veggies, too. Just make sure you slice them thinly so they cook quickly and are easy to eat. Try fresh mushrooms, seasonal tomatoes, or sliced pepperoni or sausage. You could also quickly saute spinach or kale, and top the "pizza" with some greens before adding the cheese. It's your call!
Tip for Keeping Pizza Chicken Keto
Keep this keto by using your favorite no-sugar pizza sauce. Carbs and sugars lurk in processed foods like tomato-based sauces, so don't be shy about reading labels.
