Multiple Meals: Low Carb Chicken Pizza

23 Jan

Happy Monday! Did you see my post yesterday? I made Spicy Chicken Parm Sliders…. just for myself. The recipe is scaled for 12 sliders. Even if I wanted to, I don’t think I could eat 12 sliders.

So this morning I started to think of new things I can do with the main elements from yesterday’s recipe. Wanting something easy and low-key on a Monday night, I still want a meal that’s fun to eat.

Pasta would be an easy answer. I’m not going that route. My mind started to think about pizza… but I don’t have any dough to make the crust. Buuuut I do have some flour tortillas. Ding Ding Ding! I can make a low carb pizza by using the tortilla as the crust.

Tortilla size doesn’t matter. I’m using a smaller tortilla because I’m cooking for myself but you can grab a bigger tortilla if you’re sharing this meal with someone else. Or use the smaller tortillas and people can customize their pizza with their favorite toppings.

These are the ingredients you’ll need, you’ll notice they are the same ones from yesterday’s post:

  • Flour tortilla
  • Shredded chicken
  • Marinara sauce
  • Cheese
  • Basil

If you have some additional veggies, those would be good too. The main thing to remember is you don’t want to load down the tortilla with too many toppings. The tortilla needs to get crispy. I added some pepperoncinis to my pizza. I had them on hand from yesterday, plus I love the subtle spice and salty taste they give.

Turn your oven onto 415 degrees. Layer the ingredients onto the tortilla and bake for 12-15 minutes. When the edges of the tortilla are brown & crisp, your pizza is ready! I really like this meal because it gives into that pizza “fix.” Everyone has it, but it’s nice to eat something that’s really good and still healthy… instead of the calorie bomb you can get out at restaurant.

I’m planning on eating my pizza while watching some bad reality TV and sipping on some wine. How do you like to spend your Monday night?

    Oh yummmmmmm. Yes, I could eat this. A LOT!

    I had a “ding ding” moment of my own when I read this 🙂 You bring up a good point about the ingredients. I need to plan better, and do things like this. It would save money and a lot of waste. Yep, I need to be better about this…hmmmmmm….

      I love “ding ding” moments! I’m so happy you got my concept about using the ingredients you have available. Expect a lot of that from me!
