Reviews for Avocado Chicken Pitas
"This was very good. The pesto is what made this recipe. I think next time I am going to add some bacon, olives, cilantro and green onion for toppers just for more yummy goodness."
"After seeing the picture, i was very intigued. I never thought you can have a "pizza" with avocado "sauce". :)I didnt have pita bread on hand so i made dough by using another recipe on this site: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Parmesan-Breadsticks-2I know its for bread sticks but it was very good as a pizza dough :) i baked a pizza dough and put on the toppings to heat again. I didnt use the hot pepper or e lemon juice (not a big fan of either) but i did spice it up a li'l with paprika and regular pepper. My 20 month old devoured a slice (without the added paprika) yum yum!"
"Very good and easy."
