We’re back for PIZZA NIGHT! It’s the most important night of the week if you ask me! And Chicken Parmesan Pizza is my current obsession. Just imagine freshly made pizza dough, piled high with fresh mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, and breaded chicken and sprinkled with a bit of oregano and then dusted with salt and pepper. Holy moly. Good luck ever getting an invite over to my house when I make this, it’s basically too good to share.

Chicken Parmesan was the first recipe I ever learned to cook. I would make it on a weekly basis for my tennis team in college and twice a week when Thomas and I were dating. It was my one hit wonder and it’s still a favorite to this day. I’ve taken those classic flavors and turned them into chicken parm meatballs, chicken and mushroom parmesan pasta and chicken parm panini’s! Plus I’ve taken it over to the vegetarian side of things for a stacked eggplant parm number! I can’t be stopped. And today it’s all about a chicken parmesan pizza. You’ll be into it, I promise!

    Yumm this looks awesome!! I always keep Trader Joe’s pizza crust in my freezer and then take it out in the morning. It’s just so darn easy!! I never thought of putting chicken parm on top of it though. It sounds amazingggg!!

    This looks delicious. My husband used to order chicken parm pizza but it’s never as good as homemade.

    Seriously my two favorite foods in the whole world combined into one! How can this not be the most amazing pizza ever?! I do not blame you for one second for breaking your pre-wedding diet for this!

    Though I cannot believe that “the best pizza in the world” wouldn’t have a softly-fried egg on it, this does look pretty close!

  5. Lisa

    This sounds delicious! I NEED pizza at least once a week. And yippee we now have a Trader Joe’s here to get the right dough.

    Pizza and pasta are the reasons that I will NEVER be on a No Carb diet! This pizza looks really yummy, you didn’t stand a chance of staying on the diet.

    Carb-free diets are way overrated. It’s far more important for you to be living it up in these last weeks before the wedding! Enjoy!
