  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders or chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese
  • Pepperoni and Sliced olives or other pizza toppings


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook just about 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute more.
  • Meanwhile, sprinkle the chicken with the salt, pepper, oregano, and pepper flakes.
  • Push the mushrooms to the edges of the pan. Place chicken tenders in the center of the pan. Cook about 3-4 minutes, or until golden, then flip and do the same on the other side.
  • Add the pizza sauce to the pan. Cover and cook until the chicken is almost cooked through.
  • Add the cheese, pepperoni, and olives and cover and cook until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through.
