Salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning, to taste
1 tablespoon pizza sauce

PIZZA CHICKEN – SIMPLIFIED METHOD (No pre-grilling or pre-cooking involved)
Flatten the chicken breast slightly, if necessary, to make it an even thickness all over. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spread the pizza sauce over the top of the chicken then top with the pepperoni, raw mushrooms and green pepper rings. Sprinkle the vegetables with a little more salt if you like. Bake at 400º 15 minutes then top with the mozzarella cheese. Bake another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is done to your liking.
