Renee’s Chicken and Bell Pepper Thin Crust Pizza

Posted on 01/26/2016 by Kulae

As a busy health coach, who also works as a hair stylist and is taking my yoga teacher training, I am often asked what I eat on those days where I am just too busy to cook.  Even on my busiest days, I try to resist the temptation of eating out.  I know that it’s just not worth getting a quick meal in if it is going to cause me to have a stomach ache or to feel lethargic. Same thing goes for those days where I am craving comfort food, but don’t want to pay the price.  I have found that it is impossible to know what, exactly, is in my food if I don’t make it myself.  The biggest problem when it comes to craving comfort foods is finding a pizza recipe or restaurant that meets all of my elimination and candida diet requirements.  After living with these food restrictions on and off for years, I have come up with a candida and elimination friendly, tasty, quick and comforting, gluten, dairy, sugar, yeast, vinegar and mushroom free pizza.  Now I know, this probably sounds too good to be true, and to be honest, if you don’t have to adhere to these restrictions, I doubt you’ll be impressed with the end result, but for those of us that have had to live pizza free for some time, this might just seem like magic!  If you are not dairy free, use real cheese instead of the Daiya vegan cheese.  You can also alter the recipe to include any veggies you like, and if you omit the chicken, this is recipe can be vegan as well!  The other great thing about this recipe is that it only takes about 15 minutes to make.  Having this in my healthy eating tool kit really does save me on those nights that I don’t get home until late, need to eat, but just don’t have the time or energy to cook.  This is also a great example of something you could eat for lunch or dinner while on the elimination diet that my new e-book called The Path describes.  The Path is a road map to learning exactly what your food allergies or food sensitivities are, how they affect your mood and health, and how to finally take control of your energy and well-being for the long term.  Click on this link to learn more about The Path and how it can help you find true health and vitality.


Renee’s Chicken and Bell Pepper Thin Crust Pizza


1 Food For Life frozen brown rice tortilla – you can find these in the frozen foods section at Whole foods or Trader Joe’s

1 tablespoon sugar free tomato sauce – I like to use Rao’s brand

1/2 cup fresh or frozen sliced bell peppers

chicken1/2 package Brat Hans Organic Chicken Breast Strips – I find these in the pre-packaged meat section at Whole Foods

1/2 cup Daiya mozzarella style shreds – found in most grocery store’s dairy section.  This is a great cheese alternative.  Simply ingredients and gooey when melted.

daiya cheese

  1.  Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees F.
  2.  Assemble your pizza in the order listed above, sprinkling the cheese or cheese alternative last over the veggies and chicken.  Tip – Go easy with the sauce, the tortilla is thin and will get soggy if you put too much on.
  3. Put the pizza on a baking sheet and place in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges of the tortilla start to brown and the pizza is heated through.
  4. Place on a cutting board, slice into four sections and eat immediately.  The pizza tastes best served hot.

Yours in health,
