Lesson #19: LEAN CHICKEN PIZZA

LEAN CHICKEN PIZZA

Lean chicken pizza

A great recipe for gluten free low carb and high protein
 
Ingredients (4 servings):
Base:
– 500 g chicken breast (or use already grounded chicken breast) Try to avoid the packet chicken mince as there is generally more saturated fat in there
 1 whole egg
 Cracked pepper & sea salt to taste
 Optional flavour: chilli powder or spice of choice
 
Topping:
 Tomato based sauce (blended fresh tomato and fresh basil)
 spices of choice – oregano is my choice
 1/2 onion sliced how you like it
 1 bell pepper (1/2 green, 1/2 yellow)
 100 – 125 g mushrooms
 Small handful black kalamata olives
 Sprinkle of Low-No fat ricotta over the pizza
 
Directions:
– Put the chicken breast in the blender if not grounded already or cut it in very small pieces as this is the base of the pizza
– In a mixing bowl, add the blended chicken, egg, pepper & sea salt and spice you choose to
– Spread the base of a baking dish so that the whole base is covered. Lay some baking paper so that it doesn’t stick to tray or spray tray with rice bran oil spray
– Put in oven at 180 degrees oven for 20-25 mins until the mixture is a dark brown.
– Let it cool for about 10 minutes.
– Cover with the bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, olives and ricotta and place back in the oven
– Cook for a further 15-20 minutes
