New week = new meal prep recipe idea! I finally took the plunge and decided to take my large shopping trip to Trader Joe’s. & UMM, why have I been wasting my time & money at these other markets?!! I was in foodie heavennnnn. I heard great things about TJ’s pizza crust options so I decided to build my meal prep around it. I mean, a load of veggie toppings counts as salad, right?
I tried a gluten-free/organic dough crust as well as a cauliflower crust.
What you’ll need:
- Regular or cauliflower crust
- 2-4 chicken breasts
- 1 Asian Vegetable Stir Fry pack
- 1/2 bag of spinach
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes
- 2 tbps feta cheese
- 4 tbps tomato paste
- 2 tbps pineapple (obvi, optional)
Preheat the oven to 425° F.
Dice chicken breasts and grill pan over medium heat, 6 minutes on each side.
*If using cauliflower crust: Bake crust first for 15 minutes then let cool.
(Do not skip this added step or else your crust will crumble like mine did -____- )
Prep your crust with a touch of EVOO and tomato paste/sauce. Carefully, spread the cheese, herbs, chicken, and veggies. Bake once more for 20-25 minutes or until crust and veggies are golden brown.
*If using regular crust: Prep your crust. Add toppings. Bake for 20 minutes. Let pizza cool before slicing.
Cauliflower crust is absolutely delicious, however, it did cause me some discomfort. Cauliflower is in the family of Cruciferous veggies, which b/c high in fiber can lead to bloating. But, I would def recommend either version of this recipe to all!
