What you’ll need

  • ½ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 4 (6-8 inch) pieces whole grain pita bread
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp. dried basil or oregano, as desired
  • 2 avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
  • Pepper, to taste

How to make it:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease a small baking dish. Place the chicken breast in the prepared baking dish and season with pepper. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake the chicken until opaque throughout or until an instant- read thermometer insert into the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F, about 30 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then shred into pieces. Set aside. 
  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Place the pita breads in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese and the basil, dividing the toppings equally. Bake until the cheese melts, 3-5minutes. Let cool slightly.
  3. In a small bowl, use a fork to mash the avocados until smooth. Divide the avocado equally among the pizzas, spreading it in a thin later over the cheese, Top with the shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Cut the pizzas into quarters and serve.

Notes: Short cut- use store-bought rotisserie chicken.
