Ideas for Avocado: Avocado Pizza

Pizza and a movie anyone?  Sometimes I just like to stay in and cuddle with the hubby, eat cheesy pizza and watch a movie.  This kind of pizza fits the bill…tomatoes and basil from the garden, fresh mozzarella, and AVOCADO.

Serves: 4

Ingredients
  • whole wheat pizza dough
  • 3-5 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced thin and seeds removed
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thin
  • a handful of basil, torn
  • salt to taste
  • 1 avocado, sliced thin
  • Parmesan cheese, to taste

Instructions
  1. preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. roll out the dough into a 12 inch circle and put onto a baking sheet or a pizza stone
  3. spread a few tablespoons tomato sauce on the dough. Keep it thin.
  4. layer tomatoes onto the crust. Taking out the seeds first is important so the pizza doesn't get soggy
  5. layer the mozzarella on top of the tomatoes
  6. add salt to taste
  7. layer the sliced avocado and basil on top
  8. bake in the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes. Turn the heat up to broil and bake an additional 2-3 minutes, until the cheese starts to get some brown spots
  9. Top with Parmesan, additional basil, and enjoy!

Have you ever tried avocado as a pizza topping?

    Hey girl! Your photos look smashing, btw, great job! I love that you put avocado on this pizza. That is definitely one topping I have not tried yet, but so want to! I’m the same way as you, I love snugging in with the family on a Friday night and watching a movie and eating Chinese or pizza. Before kids John and I were so lame, we used to order a pepperoni pizza every Friday night and sit in front the the fire and watch Sabrina the teenage witch. Seriously, we loved that show! Am I dating myself here? hehe! xoxo, Jackie

      Thank you Jackie! You should definitely try pizza with avocado sometime. I don’t think that is lame at all, haha! I used to watch that show all the time. Having a night to just relax and hang out is nice once in a while, especially on a Friday after a long week 🙂
