Jalapeno Pizza with Avocado

Jalapeno Pizza with Avocado

It’s no secret I love pizza,

just ask anyone who knows me.

I’m always up for a slice. I refer to a whole pizza as a pie. I’m sure you guessed that already seeing as I’m from the East Coast. Everyone calls it a pie there.

It’s hard to change how you talk, although I do think my accent is not what it used to be. I saw myself on an older video a few months ago and couldn’t believe how heavy of an accent  used to have. No wonder people would always ask we where I was from. Well they still do, just not EVERY DAY!

Since living in California, I developed a love for Jalapenos. You not surprised, right? I have so many recipes on here with jalapenos I think it may just need it’s own category.

Back to  the Jalapeno Pizza, I started with a 16 oz ball of pizza dough

I stretched it and placed in onto my pizza pan that was sprinkled with cornmeal so the dough wouldn’t stick. I topped the dough with a little olive oil and Mozzarella Cheese.

On top of that went thin sliced jalapeno and scallions

It baked in a 500 degree oven for 8 minutes and then I slid it off the tray to crisp the bottom for the remaining minute or so.


Once it cooled just enough to set the cheese I sliced it and added pieces of avocado.

I even put some fresh lime juice on top, it was delicious! This is really my new favorite, and hubby’s too.

  1. I’ve lived in CA for 10 years and think my Chicago accent is pretty much gone until someone says “where are you from?” at least once a month 🙁 My parents haven’t changed their answering machine message in over a decade and when I call and hear my “old” voice on it I know I’ve come a long way.
    ps. I’m totally making this pizza. Its all my favorite things!

    1. yes it’s so funny how when you hear it for yourself you know your accent has changed! XXOO!!!

  2. Mmm, looks killer! I love that you didn’t scrimp on the jalapeno’s! Great post and I’m drooling for a slice now…

    1. I’m going to pick up some avocados and hope there is a ripe on in the bin to make this tonight or tomorrow, I can’t get this pizza off my mind 🙂

  3. Diane, your recipes look delicious! I can’t even concentrate on my work right now because I want this pizza right now. Thanks for sharing!

    1. SO sorry to have distracted you 🙂 I used to have a warning that said: Warning: This blog will make you hungry! Maybe I should think of re installing it. LOL> Glad you’re reading it though. Thanks!
