Pizza Chicken

4 chicken breasts
MDP's Italian Spice Blend
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup pizza sauce
pepperoni slices
1 cup mozzarella cheese
grated parmesan
favorite veggie toppings: peppers**, onions**, mushrooms**, olives, chopped broccoli**, tomato slices, roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, etc

** Thin sliced and precooked. I place in a glass bowl with a saucer as a lid and microwave chopped veggies about 2 minutes to soften.

Butterfly chicken breasts and pound out to make sure they are even thickness. How do I do that? Video link here :)

Drizzle olive oil over chicken breasts and toss them around to make sure they are all coated. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with a little MDP's Italian Spice Blend. Grill chicken breasts on an outdoor grill, grill pan, or under the broiler.

Preheat broiler to low.

Place cooked chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Spread chicken with pizza sauce, then top with pepperoni slices, veggies, and parmesan and mozzarella. Broil about 5 minutes until cheese has melted and browned to your liking.

This is delicious alongside caesar or garden salad for a low carb dinner, or with a side of pasta tossed in low-fat alfredo and topped with diced tomatoes and chopped flat leaf parsley if you want to live it up a little.
