How To Make Chicken Parm Pizza
There are a few steps to making this chicken recipe, I won’t call it an easy chicken recipe…but it’s definitely worth the effort to make it!
Start by mixing the ground chicken with some seasonings and pressing it into cake pans lined with plastic wrap. Then you freeze the pans for 4 hours.
You can absolutely do this ahead of time, even the night before.
When the chicken rounds are frozen, set up a breading station with three deep plates. One with breadcrumbs, one with beaten eggs and one with flour.
Bread the chicken patties and get them in a large skillet with oil to fry.
You’ll want the chicken patty to look brown and crispy, just like these do. Then carefully flip the chicken patty to the other side until to cook.
Repeat with the other chicken patty and set on paper towels to drain the grease a little from the chicken.
Now it’s time to top your chicken pizza! Of course you’re going to want to get mozzarella cheese on there and then any other toppings you like!
Pizza Topping Ideas
• Peppers and onions
• Sliced meatballs
• Black olives
Once your pizza is loaded with toppings, place it on a sheet pan and bake in the oven just until the cheese is melted. Slice into pizza wedge shapes and serve.
