Food is seen as so many things depending on our mood or our social activity. If we’re depressed we eat foods that comfort us whether healthy or not, when we’re happy we often eat fatty food, when angry, crunchy simple carbs will do thank you…and so on.
After having a rather large lunch while out with family yesterday, I didn’t want a big or heavy dinner nor did I feel like cooking, but I did. I ruffled through the pantry and refrigerator and found a few items to create a thin crust, fairly healthy pizza. So off to work, very little work, I went and the result was extremely satisfying and delicious so I want to share it with you in hopes that it will inspire you to create with wild abandon.
Pumpkin-Avocado-Caramelized Onion Pizza
I used a pre-made thin crust that I had in the freezer
Leftover pumpkin from roasting one last week
1 avocado, peeled, sliced, chunks
1 lg. onion, sliced and sauteed in 1/4 cup white wine
mozzarella cheese – I used shredded
Spread tomato paste thinly over crust, spread pumpkin over that, later with caramelized onion, sprinkle avocado over top, lightly drizzle olive oil over all then top with a small amount of mozzarella cheese…don’t over-do it.
Bake at 450° for about 10 minutes and enjoy!
You could use flour tortillas for single serving pizzas, everyone can create their own.
