This FTDI pizza made me feel like I was eating regular food again. It’s a nice break from the monotony when you’re having chicken at every meal.
Chicken and Oats
About this Recipe
After finally getting the hang of oat tortillas, I had a little extra on hand, plus I had extra taco meat I had made for that week’s meals. I decided to improvise and try something new, a pizza!
- 1 tortilla
- 4oz chicken
- 1 handfull fresh spinach
- A few fresh basil leaves (or dried, but use about a tbsp)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 small tomato (or 1 tbsp salsa)
- Oregano to taste
- Salt and Pepper to taste
This pizza features a spinach basil “pesto” as the “sauce”, and then uses chicken and tomato (super thin slices, less than you’d have in salsa) and lots of great seasonings. You could substitute out a lot of things to make this your own. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
Step by Step Instructions
Make your tortilla’s in advance. I’ll post a recipe here for that separately.
If you are prepping for a whole week, you can also make your chicken or protein topping in advance. I throw chicken breasts in an Instant Pot with some spices (oregano in this case) and then stew them followed by shredding them.
Take your handfull of spinach and a few leaves of basil. You can either run them through a food processor, or chop them finely with a knife. It doesn’t matter what the consistency is, as long as it’s not full leaves.
Dice your garlic and add it to the spinach and basil mixture. Spray mixture with pam, and toss so that all ingredients are mixed together.
Lay out your tortilla on a baking sheet, and add your mixture to the top. Spread the mixture to cover your tortilla, like you would a pizza sauce.
Add your chicken. Weigh out your portion of chicken (4oz women, 6oz men). I personally like to dice my chicken so that it’s easier to eat, but you can leave it shredded if you like. Add it to the top of your pizza, making sure to evenly disperse it.
sSlice your tomato thin. You only need enough thin slices to cover the top of the chicken. You can also use a little bit of salsa. Since tomatoes (salsa) are an item to use in moderation, I try to use as little as possible, but enough to get that flavor. Don’t overdo it.
Crush your Oregano in your palms and add to your pizza. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top off with a few spinach leaves for effect (optional).
Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Because everything is pre-cooked, you only need to warm it up. Watch for any burning. If your chicken in singed, take it out!
Eat with a fork! The tortilla is not strong enough for slices, so this pizza must be eaten with a fork. But even if it falls apart, it still tastes wonderful!
