The American Institute for Cancer Research recommends a cancer-prevention diet rich in whole grains and colorful fruits and vegetables, and these easy-to-make peach pizzas make meeting that goal a snap. This recipe yields four individual pizzas, and they come together quickly with whole wheat naan, lean chicken breast, red onion, part-skim mozzarella cheese, zesty BBQ sauce, naturally-sweet peach slices and arugula. If you have kids at your table, invite them into the kitchen to help.
