Pizza Chicken Bake


Skip greasy cardboard takeout and make THIS pizza bake at home instead!

Simple, Delicious, Melty, and SUPER Satisfying!

When shopping for store-bought marinara sauce:

I like to make sure the marinara has no added sugar (tomatoes naturally contain sugar, but there shouldn’t be sugar in the ingredients list.)

I REALLY prefer sauce in glass jars… much better flavor and no leaching from cans.

Marinara sauce should only contain just a few simple ingredients such as tomatoes, garlic, and herbs.

Splurge on the high-quality sauce when you can, because your meal will taste exactly like the sauce you use.

Makes 4 servings


  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4), lightly pounded to even thickness
  • 1 Tbsp high-quality olive oil, or avocado oil
  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon each
  • 1 tsp Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup low sugar marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 oz thinly sliced nitrate-free mini pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup pitted olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley, oregano, or basil to garnish


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f. Season the chicken breasts with sea salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper, then drizzle with the oil.Gently rub the seasonings into the chicken on all sides to coat well, then arrange them evenly into a baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes in your preheated oven, then remove from the oven.Spoon the marinara sauce all over the chicken, then sprinkle with cheese, mini pepperoni, olives and cherry tomatoes as shown.
Return the baking dish to the oven and bake until chicken is fully cooked (internal temp should read 165F), about 10 additional minutes. Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs and enjoy!
