Avocado Pizza

DSC_0080_01

I’ve been on an avocado kick lately.  Putting them in salsas, burritos, salads, whatever.  So when I went to use the rest of my Whole Wheat Pizza Dough I though what the hell, let’s put some avocado on it.  If that doesn’t sound appealing to you then check out my Apple Goat Cheese Pizza that I made with the other half of my dough.  And if that doesn’t sound good, I don’t know, stop reading this blog.

Still reading?  Fabulous.

I don’t really have a reason as to why I used the ingredients I did.  Other than the fact that they were in my fridge and they sounded good.  I think I was going for a salsa on a pizza.  I’m not really sure how the Kalamata olives found their way on there.  But they were delicious so I wasn’t mad about it.

Recipe:
Baking time: 8-10 minutes

1 cup cherry tomatoes (about 8, sliced thin)
1 avocado (sliced thin)
2 oz goat cheese
12 kalamata olives (chopped)
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp oil
1 tsp cilantro (or 1 tbsp fresh)
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cumin (ground)
1 garlic clove

Preheat oven 450°

Start with your dough on a lightly floured surface.

Gently stretch it out into a circular shape.  Do this whatever way you find easiest.  I do the hang and stretch a lot.

Now decorate your pizza, doesn’t really matter how.  I got a little silly with it.  To read about how I cut an avocado click here.  It’s not a genius method or anything, I just find it safer than a lot of methods you find.

Bake in your 450° oven for about 8 minutes or until golden brown.

The avocado kind of gets the consistency of a hard boiled yolk.  Some may not enjoy that.  I thought it was lovely.  I’ve been kind of enjoying unconventional pizzas over the traditional lately.  Anybody can knock out a cheese pizza and hell, you can buy one pretty much on every corner.  Avocado pizza?  Not too many places selling that.  And I know there’s a smart ass who just thought, “Yeah, probably because it sucks.”  Enjoy your life of snob misery judgmental internet viewer, I’m going to enjoy my avocado pizza.
