1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup chicken breasts (grilled, boneless, skinless, diced [about 2 small breasts])

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (grated)
1 tablespoon basil (fresh, rinsed, dried, and chopped [or 1 teaspoon dried])
4 pitas (whole-wheat, 6 1/2-inch)

Keep ingredients on hand for older children to make pita pizzas for themselves. Younger children can help top their own personal pizzas.

  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450°F.
  2. For each pizza, spread ¼ cup tomato sauce on a pita and top with ¼ cup chicken, ¼ cup broccoli, ½ tablespoon parmesan cheese, and ¼ tablespoon chopped basil.
  3. Place pitas on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for about 5–8 minutes until golden brown and chicken is heated through. Serve immediately.
