Yum Alert: Avocado Pita Pizza

Written by emilyc


Avocado makes the best pizza topping. If you were scared to try it in the past, don’t be. Think about it – two of the best things (pizza and avocado) coming together in one food. It’s even better when the pizza crust is pita and the sauce is cilantro! Recipe and image via Two Peas and Their Pod.


To make the Cilantro Sauce:

1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 tablespoon minced and seeded jalapeΓ±o pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the pizza:

2 pieces whole wheat pita bread
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
