Started the paleo lifestyle, but the thought of never having pizza again was not realistic. So I came up with this variation, you will not miss the crust.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with the avocado oil. Place chicken on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Cut chicken breast in half horizontally and top each half with tomato sauce, oregano, and mozzarella cheese.

  • Continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can also add what ever paleo-friendly toppings you like (peppers, onion, mushrooms, etc.).

Gluten Free Chicken Pizza Haiku: "Taste was very bland. Needs alot of jazzing up. Is it paleo?" I don't follow any 'diet' other than to eat what makes my mouth smile and my stomach sing in moderation so I'll try anything that's considered free of this or that or intended for cave people or mole people. But in regards to this recipe's description if I'm not mistaken cheese isn't part of the paleo diet? No bother to me load on the cheese b/c this recipe really really really needed some zap & zing. Chicken needed s&p tomato sauce should be a marinara or at least have other seasoning added to it b/c the oregano on its own was very one-dimensional and over-powering. I didn't change anything about the recipe and we ate it w/ zucchini and penne pasta all of which needed a heavy sprinkle of salt pepper and parmesan to make up for the boring chicken. Points for ease though - the prep and directions were fine dandy and speedy. Read More
