Homemade Chicken Vegetable Pizza

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 -____- )

*oops*

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.

Voilà!

*Disclaimer*

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!
