Chicken Parmesan Pizza [Gluten Free]

I’m so excited to be finally sharing this chicken parmesan pizza recipe with you today. I have had it on my “to make” list for years and the day has finally come. Best of all, it’s on a cauliflower crust for some extra “health value”.

My favorite chicken dish is chicken parmesan. If I see it in a restaurant, it’s my kryptonite. This issue is I have a sensitivity to gluten so I usually end up in hives.

My favorite dinner is pizza, again if I order it at a restaurant – I erupt in hive city. Thanks, chronic urticaria.

With that being said, when I decided that this month I’m going to make a chicken parmesan pizza, I knew I had to make it gluten-free, but taste like it’s loaded with the good stuff. My taste buds are adjusted but they still love a good wheat-filled dinner.

Gluten free pizza crust

As a mom who is running two businesses, parenting two kids (one who’s under two), the days of the homemade pizza crust are nil.

Instead, I look for pre-made crusts in the deli or freezer aisle with healthier options. It’s amazing what you can find in your natural/gluten-free aisle these days.

Gone are the days of cardboard.

Yes, you can still make a homemade cauliflower crust or a gluten-free pizza crust from scratch but I didn’t have time this week. Instead, I grabbed a cauliflower crust from Costco and went with it.

You can also find frozen cauliflower crusts at most supermarkets these days too. Go team allergy!

How to make chicken parmesan pizza

This is one of the simplest recipes on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen.

As stated before, I’m using a pre-made crust. I topped it with a marinara sauce.

I decided to use marinara instead of pizza sauce because chicken parmesan is made with a marinara, so I thought it would work better.

Top with my gluten free parmesan breaded chicken (recipe below) and red pepper and you’re good to go.

Enjoy a slice or two with a side salad and you have dinner!

As always, I cooked chicken that has been raised by Canadian Chicken Farmers.

Why?

Not only is Canadian chicken is a healthy choice but it’s also grain-fed, free of added hormones (like all chicken in Canada) and steroids, and raised right here in Canada according to nationally-set, high food safety, and animal care standards.

The animal care standards are audited by a third party program and it’s a mandatory program for all Canadian chicken farms.

DID YOU KNOW? Canadian chicken farmers are committed to sustainability by preserving the health of the land, providing value to Canada’s economy, and making affordable food for Canadians.

Ingredients

For breading chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsps parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the pizza

  • 1 cauliflower crust
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce I used Kirkland Organic
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • optional: basil for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Heat a cast iron pain over medium heat.
  • In a medium bowl add an egg and a splash of milk.
  • In another bowl add the gluten free breadcrumbs, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and parmesan cheese.

Arranging the pizza

  • Spread marinara over a pre-cooked gluten-free crust. Feel free to add more if you want a saucier pizza.
