honey arugula & avocado pizza

avocado makes most things yummy. pizza is no exception. :)

i’m always on the lookout for inventive recipes that feature avocado. while i’ve infused avocado into many a culinary experiment, i thought it was about time i make this lovely tropical fruit a pizza topping. and i was so glad i did. :)

– preheat oven to 400F

prep the dough:
– sprinkle some whole-wheat flour on a clean surface before rolling out the fresh pizza dough (i bought some fresh from the bakery.)
– using a rolling pin, flatten out the dough into a thin, round pie
– sprinkle some more flour on the dough pie, flip over before applying the rolling pin again
– place the prepped dough pie on a pizza stone (at room temperature) or a lightly-greased, round baking pan

prep the toppings:
– 1 cup fresh organic arugula
– 1 haas avocado (peeled, pitted, sliced)
– 1/2 red bell pepper (pitted, thinly sliced)
– fresh light mozzarella (grated)

prep the pie:
– spread 2 tbsp plain, low-fat greek yogurt evenly on pizza dough
– lightly drizzle honey
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– add a bed of fresh arugula, then add sliced avocado & peppers
– sprinkle mozzarella (grated) evenly over toppings
– season w/ ground black peppercorns

bake the pie:
– bake pizza at 400F for 20min, or until crust is golden brown
– remove from oven & allow to cool on rack before slicing

(tip: the drizzled honey may soften the dough a bit, so you may need to adjust the baking time by a few minutes longer, depending on your oven.)
