avocado flatbread

This flatbread is a fresh take on your average pizza. It will fill you up just the same but won’t leave you feeling bloated from lots of grease and cheese. It’s a perfect meal for a sunny day and a great way to use up some avocados before they get too soft. You can also incorporate leftover meat and produce!

Serves: 4 two-slice portions
Prep Time: 20 minutesIMG_0215
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
Refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pillsbury Pizza Crust)
2 ripe avocados
1 cup chopped tomato
¼ cup sliced red onion
3 tablespoons balsamic dressing
¼ cup Feta cheese
3 sliced cooked bacon
1 cup cooked chicken (optional)

Make it your own: Use steak instead of beef or put a Mexican twist on it with queso fresco instead of feta and adding some lime and spices instead of balsamic.

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon in oven (425° for 14 min) or on stove top, or just use pre-cooked bacon!
  2. Bake pizza crust according to package directions.
  3. While pizza crust and bacon are cooking, saute tomatoes and onions in balsamic dressing for 3-5 minutes or until soft. Stir in cooked chicken to allow chicken to be coated in flavor.
  4. Once pizza crust is finished, mash the avocado flesh onto the crust (this would be the “sauce” if it were a traditional pizza).
  5. Top with tomato, onion, and chicken mixture.
  6. Sprinkle with feta and bacon.
  7. Enjoy!
