Avocado Pita 'Pizza' {recipe}


I love avocado.  I'm pretty sure my love for it developed while I was pregnant.  I could have eaten these little things EVERY day.  These would make a great lunch, or a light dinner.  I love to make them when I really don't feel like cooking (not to mention.. they are GOOD for you).

I hope you try this one - it's worth the small amount of time it takes to prepare.  :)

Avocado Pita 'Pizza'

  •  2 whole pita breads
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium (ripe) avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. hot sauce (or more to your liking)
  • 1/2 lb. cooked chicken, shredded or cut in strips (I used my rotisserie chicken that I freeze)
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 cups or so Monterey Jack or Colby Jack cheese
  • pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Brush one side of each pita with olive oil.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until browned and crisp.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash the avocado with lemon juice, salt, garlic powder and hot sauce.  Spread over pitas.  Layer with the chicken, tomato and cheese.  Bake 5-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Add pepper to taste.  Makes 2 servings.


  1. I actually made this! (Typically, I simply sit and drool ;) It was delicious, so much so that I shared the recipe and have received a rave review already. Thank you! Yummmy!

  2. I was at a loss what to do for lunch today and happened to have an avocado I had to use before going bad. I made this and it was EXTREMELY EASY AND DELICIOUS! And, it totally hit the spot! Thanks so much!!

  3. You're welcome! We love these!



  4. Love these, and can make as many as I like, depending on how many grandchildren are around :) I leave the chicken off for the vegetarians in the family, and substitute with grilled cod or halibut chunks. Tasty!!


I'd love to hear from you!
