SKINNY AVOCADO PIZZA

Posted on

Avocado pizza with Avocado Sauce?! Yes! Yes! And more Yes! Can you tell I’m screaming with joy?

I love, love avocados and find every way I can to incorporate more of them into my dishes. Have you tried the avocado eggrolls with the most amazing dipping sauce at Cheesecake Factory? Avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and cilantro stuffed in a crispy won ton wrapper, served with tamarind-cashew dipping sauce. They are to die for! That’s where the inspiration for my pizza came from as I wanted to incorporate similar flavors of the eggrolls but also use a lighter approach with this dish.

Skinny and by skinny I mean puff pasty thin crust, baked with pizza pesto, which is a burst of gazillion flavors such as garlic, cashews, cilantro, cumin, turmeric just to name a few. Sweet, zesty, savory, and a little gooey. You name it. Topped with avocado, red tomatoes, and red onion.

Oh and don’t get me started on the Avocado Sauce! Blend of garlic, cilantro and avocado drizzled over the pizza. It also makes a great dipping sauce for about anything!
