Three-color pizza with basil, mozarella, tomatoes and avocado

This is basically a caprese (basil-mozarella-tomato together are called a caprese salad) pizza with an addition of fresh avocado. A beautiful fresh tasting pizza in the colors of Italy, perfect for the warm weather outside. Enjoy :).
Recipe idea adapted from BBC's Good Food.

Last year: Violet flame (cocktail).
Two years ago: Stuffed baked avocados (Middle Eastern).

Ingredients (serves 2-3):
  • our crispy pizza crust
  • 125 g mozarella
  • 200 g cherry tomatoes
  • a few basil leaves
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 avocado
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Roll out the pizza dough on a large tray coated with baking paper. The thinner you roll it, the crispier it will be. Brush the pizza with olive oil, then sprinkle some chopped basil over it in an even layer:

Slice the mozarella and top the base with it. Chop the cherry tomatoes into halves or quarters and spread them around the base. Push them in lightly.

Put in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Meanwhile peel the avocado and cut its flesh into thin slices. When the pizza is done, take it out and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

Top with the avocado slices and some more fresh basil.

It's done, slice and dig in! :)
