Pizza Stuffed Chicken

Pizza Stuffed Chicken
Pizza is one of my favourite foods and it's always fun to try to find new ways to enjoy the flavours, with this pizza stuffed chicken being what I'm currently obsessed with! I basically just take all of the toppings that I would have placed on the pizza, including the sauce, cheese and other goodies, and sprinkle them onto a chicken breast before rolling them up. The rolled up chicken is then fried in a pan until lightly golden brown on the outside before being smothered in even more pizza sauce, covered in cheese and more toppings to bake in the oven making the whole pan look like one large pizza coming out of the oven! You can enjoy this pizza stuffed chicken all by itself or on top of pasta, rice, potato wedges, waffles, etc. For these pizza stuffed chicken breasts I went with pepperoni, green pepper, onion and olives for the toppings but you can use your favourite pizza toppings!
