Avocado Chicken Pizza

  When we go to visit our boys in California, I always enjoy the new fresh food combinations from the locals. So, in honor of our Los Angeles sons, I came up with this little mix for a perfect Saturday evening al fresco dining experience! ... And we can just pretend from Kansas that we are back on the West Coast feeling the cool breeze of the Pacific !  So if you want to transport yourself as well, then give this tree huger pizza a try...each of the 4 pieces will only set you back 250 calories, 4g net carbs and 32g protein (yes, 32)!  ;)

1 Thin Slim Foods Pizza Crust  ( or sub with Cauliflower Pizza Crust~recipe below)
1/4 cup Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce 
1 sheet Parmesan Folios Cheese ( or sub with 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan)
8oz diced Grilled Chicken or Chicken Tenders cooked in Italian Dressing
1/4 cup shredded Mozzarella
4 slices Green Bell Pepper
1 slice Red Onion 
1/4 cup fresh Corn
1.5oz diced Avocado
Cilantro Leaves, as garnish

      Top your Thin Slim Pizza Crust or Cauliflower Pizza Crust with Pizza Sauce, Parmesan, Chicken, Mozzarella, Green Pepper, Red Onion, and Corn.  Bake at 450 for 5-8, or until cheese is melted.  After removing from the oven top with diced Avocado and Cilantro.  (I always have extra crusts on hand and was able to pull one from the freezer and put this meal together very quickly).   Enjoy ;)

Ingredients for the Cauliflower Pizza:
1 head of Cauliflower cleaned and diced into crumbles ( I use my Pampered Chef dicer, or you can use a food processor~ just as long as you get the crumbled consistency ~ my head made 5 cups )
1 egg
1/2 cup egg white
dash salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried onions
1 cup shredded mozzarella 

     Mix all together and form into 7-8 inch thin circles and bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes on Pam coated sheet or preferably on a Silpat Sheet, for 15-20 minutes depending on how crispy you want your cauliflower crust. This will make SEVERAL, so you will have plenty to freeze for next time!
