Gluten Free Herb Chicken Mediterranean Pizza #festfoods

Topped with garlic-infused olive oil instead of traditional red sauce and tasty toppings including sun-dried tomatoes, herb-cooked chicken, and feta cheese, Udi’s™ Gluten Free Pizza Crusts make the perfect base for this flavor-packed pizza!

These pizzas are great because they require such little preparation! Really, the only two toppings that require a tiny bit of work are the chicken and the garlic-infused oil. So, to get these started, heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.

Add the cut-up chicken breast and seasonings (oregano, basil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper if desired) to the skillet. Cook until the chicken is browned and cooked thoroughly; set aside. Next, combine the minced garlic with the remaining 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, and mix well.

Gluten Free Herb Chicken Mediterranean Pizza To make the pizzas, begin by brushing the garlic-infused olive oil evenly over the two crusts. Next, layer half of the mozzarella cheese over the oil-brushed crusts (1/4 cup on each). Then, the veggies come next! Evenly layer the spinach, onions, and sundried tomatoes on the crust, and top with the cooked herb chicken. Finally, sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese (1/4 cup per pizza) on top of the veggies and chicken, and finish off with the feta cheese (2 Tbsp. per pizza).

Bake the pizzas in a preheated 400°F oven (I kept mine on the baking sheet for ease) for about 12-14 minutes, or until the crust becomes crispy and the cheese begins to brown. Alternatively, now that the weather is warming up, you could easily make these on the grill instead of in the oven! Once golden and bubbly, remove them from the oven (or grill) and cut each pizza into six scrumptious pieces… then dig in!  The combination of flavors will knock your socks off:  garlic-y, crisp crust, sweet sun-dried tomatoes, flavorful herbed chicken, salty feta cheese… this is one pizza you’ll be excited to make again! Now, even people who need to avoid gluten can have their pizza and eat it too! Gluten Free Herb Chicken Mediterranean Pizza
