Ginger Chicken Pizza

by Jen on January 19, 2012

Hey everyone!  How are you today?  I think we are finally going to warm up today.  Not that it’s going to be “warm”, we are only going from –26oC to –21oC.  But at least I don’t have to go outside today.  I’ve decided to keep the boys home from school before our vacation.  I don’t want to take the chance of them getting sick right before we leave.  There is nothing worse than being sick in a foreign country!

Guess what?

I have another pizza recipe for you today.  If the family would let me, I would make pizza for dinner 3 times a week.  Too bad they don’t share the same love for pizza that I have.  For now, I can get away with making pizza once a week.

Because I make pizza so often, I have many different recipes.  This is the great thing about pizza…you can put anything on it and it will taste great.

One of my favorite herbs is ginger.  Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory herb and is beneficial to your health in so many ways.  So I figure, why not put it on pizza?!


Ginger Chicken Pizza


Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 6-8


  • 2 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp Teriyaki sauce
  • 1 pizza crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh gingerroot, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onion, cut into strips
  • 1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated
  • red pepper flakes


  1. Brush chicken with Teriyaki sauce and grill on BBQ or broil in oven until chicken is fully cooked. Slice chicken into strips.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 F. Brush pizza crust with sesame oil and sprinkle with ginger and garlic.
  3. Top with chicken, peppers, and cheese.
  4. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
  5. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is turning golden.


Now, you’re probably thinking, a pizza without sauce?  Well…YES!  You wouldn’t want to drown out the flavours of this pizza with sauce would you?  Well…NO!

I wasn’t sure if my traditional meat and potatoes hubby would like this pizza.  But in actuality, he loves it!  As for the kids, they aren’t into ginger and garlic like we are, so I don’t put ginger and garlic on their side of the pizza, just the chicken, peppers, and cheese.  That’s the other benefit of pizza, you can customize it without having to make a completely separate pizza!
