  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 4 whole-grain pitas (about 7-inch diameter) (TIP: If you're looking to cut carbs or sodium, you can use 2 whole-grain pitas and cut each in half horizontally.)
  • 3/4 cup unsalted tomato sauce
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 oz grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 all-natural Italian-style cooked chicken sausages, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups baby arugula leaves


  1. Arrange a rack in center of oven, about 8 inches away from top heat source, and preheat broiler to high. (TIME-SAVING TIP: Turn on the broiler before doing any other prep so that it's ready when you are.) On each pita, spread 3 tbsp tomato sauce all the way to the edges. Top evenly with dollops of ricotta, mozzarella, sausage and arugula.
  2. Place pita pizzas on a large rimmed baking sheet and broil until sausage is heated through and mozzarella is lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes, reversing position of baking sheet about halfway through.
