Broccoli and Chicken Flatbread Pizza

Who else LOVES pizza? Let me tell you, my kids and I could eat pizza every day. Does anybody else love cold pizza for breakfast the next morning? It’s like I’m a college kid still! I can only think of one single issue with pizza….you know, it doesn’t go well with the word DIET. Alas, there is hope!

We made some flatbread pizzas for dinner tonight and my kids absolutely loved them! If you’re a parent you know how hard it can be to make everybody happy at meal time. You also know how difficult it is to continuously make multiple meals. I think that’s part of my reason for failing previously on diets. So, these pizzas are heaven sent. They’re kid approved and 21 Day Fix compatible!

My kids wanted the stereotypical cheese and pepperoni, while I opted for chicken and broccoli to keep it on the healthier side. Get a load of this recipe:

  • Return to oven for another 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

As you can see my kids made pepperoni. We did use turkey pepperoni so it’s a bit more healthy. This recipe can be changed to suit your tastes or mood. Replace the vegetables and protein with whatever you choose.  These were delicious and filling. I cooked an extra 1/2 cup of broccoli and a cup of baby carrots to add some of my veggies for the day. I couldn’t even finish. As you can see my kids got cucumbers and carrots on the side. I’m slowly trying to convert them 🙂Pepperoni PizzaFinished
