Sometimes, you just need a slice of pizza. But for those of us with food sensitivities, autoimmunity, or chronic illness the gluten and grains that come with traditional pizza are just not worth it. This Pepperoni Mushroom Pizza Chicken recipe is a nutritious way to satisfy that pizza craving at home.
Pizza Chicken Toppings
Use whatever sauces and toppings you prefer. I used marinara, mushrooms, and pepperoni in this recipe. Other combinations I can think of include:
- Pesto Mushroom
- Mushroom Alfredo
- Marinara, Canadian Bacon, and Pineapple
- Marinara, Sausage, and Mushroom
- Marinara, Sausage, and Green Pepper
- Pesto and Prosciutto
- Marinara and Salami
- Bacon Alfredo

The options are literally endless when it comes to pizza chicken. You can do whatever you want. Pepperoni mushroom pizza chicken is just what I had on hand.
Pizza Chicken Pairings
I tend to serve pizza chicken by itself. Especially if the chicken breast I’m using is gigantic, which is often the case.
You could also serve it alongside a Caesar or green salad. This Caesar salad dressing recipe is a good one!
If you decide to give this recipe a shot, I’d love to know if you stuck with the original pepperoni mushroom pizza chicken or if you mixed it up. If you mixed it up, I’d love to know what combination of sauce and toppings you decided to go with and hw it turned out.
