American Buffalo Chicken Pizza
1 high-fiber or whole-wheat pita
1/2 tsp. dry ranch dressing/dip mix
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese, room temperature
2 oz. cooked and chopped skinless lean chicken breast
1 tsp. Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, or more to taste
1 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 tbsp. chopped scallions  

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place pita on the sheet and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine ranch mix with cheese wedge and thoroughly mix. Spread evenly onto the pita, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge.

In another small bowl, toss chicken with hot sauce. Scatter saucy chicken over the ranchy cheese layer, and sprinkle evenly with Parm-style topping.

Bake in the oven until hot and toasty, 10 - 12 minutes.

Sprinkle with scallions, slice into quarters and, if you like, top with a little extra hot sauce. Yum time!
