Guacamole Pizza. Yep, it’s that easy.


As easy-going as my husband is about food, there are still times when I don’t want it to be obvious that I am serving him hors d’oeuvres for supper yet again. (Is anyone else reminded of the Cher movie Mermaids?)

But by assembling all the ingredients of guacamole, including the tortilla, into a pizza I look like a kitchen wizard and he feels like he’s been “made dinner.” Like all Tortilla Toss Pizzas this goes together in 2 minutes and disappears from our plates just as quickly.

An added bonus is that in hot steamy weather that we happen to be “enjoying” right now you can toast these on the grill and not even turn the oven on – keeping the kitchen that much cooler.
