Pizza is a great comfort food, but at times, it can be a bit too greasy. Luckily, I have this incredibly tasty pizza recipe with a distinct and healthy twist. Instead of using regular marinara sauce, I switched it up with some avocado sauce instead. This made for a deliciously filling and much healthier meal than anything you can get at a fast-food place. Now, you can enjoy this classic dish with fewer worries about your wellness and diet.

Ingredients

For this chicken avocado pizza recipe, you will need a few things. First, you need a small Hass avocado, but you can use regular avocados if you can’t find any of these. Although, Hass avocados are richer in taste and healthy fats.

Next, you need around 5 ounces of grilled chicken breast. You can swap out the chicken with some vegetables like eggplant and mushrooms. Using tempeh or tofu is also a good alternative.

You also need a 3/4 cup of arugula, 1 tablespoon of goat cheese, 1 and a half tablespoons of reduced-fat parmesan cheese, and some sea salt and pepper.

For the pizza crust, you will need one piece of wheat naan bread. Naan is a soft, oven-baked flatbread that originated from India. You can choose to buy some, but you can also make it from scratch if you’re up to the challenge. Although, making good naan may be more difficult than making regular pizza dough.

Cooking

Cut the avocado and place the pieces in a bowl. Next, mash the avocado using a fork until it becomes a thick paste. Next, get the wheat naan bread and spread the mashed avocado on top like a normal pizza sauce. Add the arugula, chopped chicken breast, goat cheese, and parmesan. Grease up a baking pan with some olive oil before placing the pizza in it. Bake it in the oven at 405℉ for about 12 to 15 minutes and serve.
