This Paleo Pizza Crust, BBQ Chicken style, is one of our favorites! The crust is the perfect all-purpose gluten-free and grain-free crust that everyone will love! The homemade BBQ sauce will be a favorite all season long.
Let me be real for a minute here. Back when my brother and I were kids, Domino’s was on speed dial. In fact, I can recite our local Domino’s phone number still to this day (I’m not proud of this). The reason I’m sharing this is so you understand how I feel (felt) about pizza, specifically thin crust. With pepperoni. So good and now obviously so so bad.
Many of you have tried my Paleo Pizza Crust made with eggplant, and although I love that recipe, I wanted something more dough-like, more crust-like, and simpler to throw together. After all, we don’t always have 1/2 hour to grate eggplant, and start making the pizza.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have virtually watched me make 5 versions of this to get it right, and now it is soooo right. I made this into BBQ Chicken Pizza with my Sweet and Smoky BBQ Sauce, but you can get as crazy as you want with toppings!
This Easy One-Pan Eggplant Chicken Dinner is my go-to dinner option for those nights when I don’t feel like cooking! It is packed with delicious Italian flavors, seasonal veggies, and is so customizable! Vegan? Replace the chicken with zucchini. Looking for seafood? Throw in shrimp!
The best part about this dish? Such little chopping! I love chopping vegetables, but when I have zero desire to cook, I would rather skip over the prep work and toss everything in a pan.
For this recipe simply chop the eggplant, slice the onion, mince the garlic and BOOM. Prep work is done!
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, heat oil and garlic. Add sliced onion and eggplant and let cook for 5 minutes, stirring often until onions are translucent and eggplant is somewhat soft.
Cut uncooked chicken breast into cubes, and add to the pan. Let cook for 5-7 minutes until chicken is fully cooked.
Add in fresh spinach, mix and let cook until spinach wilts.
Add in diced tomatoes and seasoning. Mix and let simmer for 7-10 minutes.
Taste and adjust spices as desired! Serve hot.
*Vegan? Simply sub out chicken for zucchini and other veggies of choice!
