Lighter Chicken Caesar Pita Pizzas

By Deen Brothers


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 7 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 2 6-inch multi-grain pita breads
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat creamy Caesar dressing
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 5-ounce container baby romaine lettuce mix
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups cook sliced chicken breast


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the pita halves on a small baking sheet and lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of the Parmesan cheese onto each pita half. Bake until the edges are lightly browned and the cheese is melted slightly, about 7 minutes. Set aside.

Combine 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese, the Caesar dressing, lemon juice, and mustard in a small bowl. Toss the lettuce mix and tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of the dressing in a large bowl. Top the pitas evenly with the salad mixture and arrange the chicken on top. Drizzle each with the remaining dressing, then sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
