Pizza is by far one of the most consumed foods in the world. In fact, the Americans eat a total of roughly 100 acres of pizza per day! When it comes to nutrition, however, not all pizza is created equal. Most pizza is bursting at the seams with calories and fat, leaving out valuable nutrients. Pizza can range anywhere from 200-400 calories for a single slice, and most people find themselves reaching for 2-3 slices! We have a much healthier option! These homemade flatbread pizzas will keep you on track with your fitness plan, while also pleasing your taste buds!
Homemade Chicken Flatbread Pizzas
Estimated Calories: 400
What you’ll need: Oven, Range
Estimated Total Time: 20 Minutes
Ingredients: Medium-Sized Soft Wheat Tortilla Shell, Red Pasta (or Pizza) Sauce, Small Chicken Breast, Mozzarella Cheese, Veggies of Choice, Garlic Powder (Optional)
Instructions (for vegetarian option, simply omit the chicken):
Thaw chicken breast. Chop into small, bite-sized pieces.
With a non-stick pan on the range, cook chicken breast pieces until thoroughly cooked.
Set oven to 350 degrees and place tortilla shell flat on top rack. (This is to get the tortilla firm enough to hold the toppings.)
Once tortilla is starting to lightly brown (5-7 minutes), carefully take out and place it on a surface to prepare the pizza.
On the tortilla, lightly spread a layer of red pasta sauce. Spread evenly and almost to the very edge, just like a standard pizza. Optional: Lightly season with garlic powder.
Add pieces of cooked chicken evenly on the pizza. You will likely find that half of the chicken breast is all you need. If so, store the rest for future meal!
Cut up and add your veggies. We recommend a variety such as red, yellow, and green peppers! More color means more nutrients! You could also add tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, or jalapeno peppers!
Lightly sprinkle cheese over the pizza. Don’t go overboard, as too much cheese can make this meal unhealthy! Just sprinkle enough to add a little flavor.
Carefully place in the oven at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
Cut into fourths and enjoy!
Keep in mind, with a recipe like this, it can be easy to go overboard with ingredients. Go heavy on the veggies, but keep everything else on the lighter side. We recommend trying this delicious recipe along with a small spinach salad and a tall glass of ice water to really fuel your body with a good balance of nutrients!
