I love easy pizza days. With just a few kitchen staples and some leftovers you can whip up a quick, healthy pizza for lunch or a late night dinner when you are too pooped out to cook.
I did this for my husband the other night and he thought it was a thin crust I had made from scratch. Little did he know it was just the lone pita pocket sitting in it's bag partially stale! Topped with some chopped veggies, fresh mozzarella cheese and left over chicken.... you have a well balanced meal.

Place your pita on a pizza stone or lined cookie sheet. Layer cheese slices, tomatoes and chicken. Place under your brioler for about 60 seconds or until the cheese is melting.
