One Pan Pizza Chicken

One Pan Pizza Chicken – get all the flavor of pizza in a one pan chicken dinner!  Super easy recipe with just a few ingredients, to get you through those tough weeknights.

Everyone loves pizza night, but you can’t really have pizza every night of the week.  So I like to come up with fun new ways to get those flavors in other easy dinners that my family loves. 

Pizza Pasta is a quick and easy one pan meal that is a staple on busy nights.  This chicken recipe is so easy to make, it is quickly going to become a staple in your house.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • Everything comes together in ONE PAN! Not only do you brown the chicken in that pan, but then you bake it until it is fully cooked. So it is super easy with little clean up.
  • Mix up the toppings however you like! I used turkey pepperoni, sliced black olives, and mushrooms, but you really can use whatever toppings you like on a pizza.
  • If you are watching carbs, this is a great low-carb and even Keto friendly recipe.

How to Make Pizza Chicken

  1. Chicken – Start by browning the chicken thighs, or you can use chicken breasts, on each side. You don’t want to fully cook the chicken, just brown it on the outside. 
  2. Vegetables – Add in the mushrooms, olives, peppers or other veggies that you are using. 
  3. Sauce – Mix in tomato sauce and seasonings, or use prepared pizza sauce. Pour it evenly over the top of everything.
  4. Cheese – Top with cheese and then place it in the oven until the chicken is fully cooked and the cheese is melted.

Other Pizza Chicken Toppings

You can really mix up the toppings to be whatever your favorites are.  Here are a few of my favorite ideas. 

  • Bell Peppers
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Pesto
  • Onions
  • Canadian Bacon
  • Pineapple

And if you have a jar of pizza sauce, feel free to use that instead of the quick homemade version that is called for in the recipe.

What Goes With Pizza Chicken

You really could serve just about anything with this chicken dish. Here are a few of my favorites.


If you have leftovers store the chicken in an airtight container for 3-4 days. You can reheat in the microwave until it is warmed through.
