Make Your Own Chicken Avocado Pizza

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 teaspoon active (or instant) dry yeast
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups warm water

Toppings

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Mozzarella
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
  • Green onion
  • Red onion
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice

Directions

For the crust:

  • Sprinkle yeast on top of 1 ½ cups warm water and let sit for a few minutes.
  • Combine flour and salt in a bowl and mix. Slowly drizzle in olive oil until combined. Now pour in yeast/water and mix until just combined. The dough should be sticky.
  • Lightly coat another mixing bowl with olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl and form it into a ball. Toss to coat it in olive oil. 
  • Cover the bowl with the dough tightly with plastic wrap and set it aside for 1 to 2 hours. If you want to set it aside longer, place it in the fridge. Make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, or as much as 3 or 4 days, for best results.
  • When you are ready to bake your pizza, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Take half the dough and form a nice, tight, pulled ball. Roll out the pizza with a rolling pin.
  • When the dough is nice and thin, lay it on an oiled baking sheet or pizza stone. Drizzle more olive oil on and dough and spread it out with a brush or your fingers. Sprinkle salt lightly on the crust. 

For the toppings:

  • Slice 2 chicken breasts in half to make 4 thin pieces. Season with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through. Let them cool and slice them into thin strips.
  • Peel and pit avocados. Toss them with lime juice to keep them from browning. 
  • Finely slice mozzarella, tomatoes, red onion, green onion, and cilantro.
  • Lay the mozzarella over the dough. Arrange chicken and avocado, then sprinkle with diced red onion and green onion. 
  • Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.
  • When it comes out of the oven, sprinkle cilantro, green onions, and tomatoes on top.
