 Gluten Free Breakfast Pizza with Avocado Pesto

Pizza + Avocado Pesto + Breakfast = Yum. This breakfast pizza uses gluten-free English muffins as the pizza crust. Classic Italian flavors get a California kiss with avocado and pistachio pesto. No one will ever guess how quick and easy it is to make this gorgeous breakfast.

Ingredients

Serves: 4
  large tomato
1/4  tsp.  salt
cup  basil leaves, thinly sliced
1/2  cup  roasted unsalted almonds
  ripe, medium Fresh California Avocado, peeled and seeded
Tbsp.  lemon juice
  As needed  cold water
  gluten-free English muffins
  slices fresh mozzarella
  rings thinly sliced red onion
  Eggs

Instructions

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  2. Slice tomato into four thick slices. Sprinkle both sides with half the salt, and lay on paper towels to catch excess moisture.
  3. Pulse basil and almonds in a food processor for 30 seconds. Add avocado, lemon juice, and salt and process until well-combined. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add cold water one tablespoon at a time and pulse to combine until you reach the desired thickness.
  4. Blot tomatoes to remove excess moisture and salt.
  5. Slice muffins in half, spreading the avocado pesto on each of the four pieces, top with a slice of mozzarella, a slice of tomato, and a slice of red onion. Cook on baking sheets for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. While the pizza bases are cooking, cook four eggs to your preference in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Serving Suggestion: For breakfast serve with sweet grapefruit segments. For later serve with an orange and basil salad.

Beverage Pairing:  Lemony hot tea or coffee.
