Guys.

I’ve been stuffing my face with Korean street food for the last 72 hours.

And it’s been amazing.

Epic amazing.

But.

I need some American food.

And all I’ve been thinking about is this.

One Pan Pizza Chicken - Win win chicken dinner! A ONE PAN meal. And it's a LOW CARB cheesy goodness meal for the whole family to enjoy on a busy weeknight!

An all-American classic pizza chicken bake.

It has all the benefits of a cheesy pizza.

Without the carbs.

So we all win here.

And since this is low carb, maybe we can add a few more pepperonis.

Because we really need to make up for the difference somehow.

    Awesome recipe!!

  3. So basically you are making chicken parmesan but adding pepperoni to it.

  4. This was fantastic! I loved the flavor of the sauce. I will add some oregano seasoning to the chicken next time as well. (I love oregano!) The pepperoni added the perfect flavor to the chicken. Another great one pan dish. Thank you for sharing your gift with us! 🙂

  5. This is the second recipe I’ve made off this site and both have been huge successes! The flavor of this was simply amazing. We plan on using the homemade sauce recipe for a multitude of other dishes that call for spaghetti or pizza sauce, too! Really putting my basil plant to use. I used regular-sized turkey pepperoni and they worked well, too. I’ve been talking about making the Korean beef bowl and have all the ingredients – S.O. was skeptical until I said recipe’s from the site that I found those two other dishes you loved – now keeps asking when I’m going to make the Korean beef bowl. 🙂 Thank you so much, I just bought e-version of your cookbook.

  6. How can i get the nutrition values?

    • Nutritional information is provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, I recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

    • I was thinking the same thing, do not use recipes unless it has the carb count

  7. Uually pizza and low-carb do not go together, but you somehow made a way for it to happen!  Love this simple, tasty winner winner chicken dinner 🙂

  8. I like your cooking because it is the best yet

  9. What type of skillet do you use to make this dish?

  10. I love this recipe. It reminds me of the classic movie with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase, “It Seems Like Old Times.” Where they have chicken pepperoni. When I watched it as a little girl I always wanted to try it. This sounds just like what it would be like.

  11. We made this for dinner today, served over some white rice, and even the picky kid ate it! Excellent recipe – thanks.

  12. This isn’t pizza at all…

  13. love your creativity

  14. Made it tonight! All gone! Kid approved and hopefully fairly healthy!

  15. I made this dish yesterday, and my family and I loved it!  Thank you.

  16. Thank you for this fabulous recipe. We have the pizza eggs several times a week either for breakfast, lunch or dinner and now the pizza chicken…..OMG!!!! Your recipes and your cookbook are the best. I use it all the time and can not wait for another one which I hope will be soon?????????
    I look forward to your blog and recipes every day knowing it will be an awesome one. Thanks for your dedication and hard work.

  17. wow! can I just grab the pizza from the screen.
