  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  3. Place chicken on baking sheet and sprinkle evenly with garlic powder. Top chicken evenly with spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, broccoli, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese, if desired.
Better-for-You Tip: One bite of this and you’ll know why everyone who tries it, tosses out their favorite pizza parlor menu and replaces it with this recipe. We think the magic starts by using a flattened chicken breast, rather than a traditional pizza crust (which means more protein) and topping it with just enough chopped pepperoni to give it its big flavor. Then we pile on lots of veggies and a bit of cheese, and we end up with a balanced meal that’s so satisfying, ordering a pizza is the last thing that comes to mind.
