Avocado Topping for a Dairy Free Pizza

Avocado Topping for a Dairy Free Pizza - Quirky Cooking
 
When you love pizza and you can’t have cheese, life is tough! But thank goodness I found this recipe for a creamy avocado pizza topping in ‘Rejuvenate Your Life’ by Serene Allison (which I’ve slightly altered). It is so delicious, even my kids love it and come back begging for more. Yay! So for all you dairy-free pizza lovers out there – here’s one for you! (By the way, you don’t have to be dairy free to love it. And it’s great as a dip too.)

I also like to sprinkle macadamia ‘cheese’ on top – you can find that recipe here in this post.

Avocado Topping for a Dairy Free Pizza

  • Author: QuirkyJo

Ingredients

2 cloves organic garlic 

4 large avocados

4 Tbsp of almond butter

2 Tbsp Tamari

a small piece of fresh chilli

handful of fresh parsley

1/4 tsp cumin powder

1/4 tsp curry powder

1/4 tsp ginger powder

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/9 tsp of nutmeg

fine sea salt & pepper to taste

juice of one lemon

Your choice of: 

sun dried tomato strips

kalamata olives

green olives

raw capsicum strips or pieces

roasted red capsicum or eggplant

diced fresh tomato or cherry tomato halves

chopped fresh herbs (chives, lemon balm, oregano, basil)

drizzle of lemon juice

Instructions

1. First make and cook your pizza bases – I usually make either a yeast spelt crust or a yeast-free scone dough crust, or a gluten free crust. (The gluten free crust can be made with 2 tsp baking powder instead of yeast, if you want it to be yeast free.) You can even make a raw, dehydrated crust if you like.

2. While they’re cooling, make the topping. In your Thermomix mince the garlic on speed 7 for 3 seconds, then add the avocados, almond butter, Tamari, chilli, parsley, cumin, curry powder, ginger powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and salt & pepper, mix until smooth and fluffy.

3. Spread a good thick layer on each pizza base, and top with some or all of the the following: sun dried tomato strips, Kalamata olives, green olives, raw capsicum strips or pieces, roasted red capsicum or eggplant, diced fresh tomato or cherry tomato halves, chopped fresh herbs (chives, lemon balm, oregano, basil) drizzle of fresh lemon juice.

Notes

I like to put all the toppings into seperate bowls and let everyone choose their own toppings – the kids enjoy eating this way.

Warning: You will have garlic breath afterwards, but it will be completely worth it!

    Yum! I need to come and check out your blog more often!!

    Thank you for your comment about my cupcake gift box, Jo 🙂 I do have a pattern for it but I am not allowed to share it as I got it as a free gift from a designer on the understanding that I wouldn’t 🙁

    You can buy it for a couple of dollars though? Here’s the link to Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s store (the designer):

    Hi Tenina! Yes, I think the raw pasta sauce would be a good one, and this one, and I can think of a couple of others if you’d like more. I’ll send some to you! Jo

    Thanks Jo! I’ve been a bit concerned how our first cheese free pizza would go since going dairy free recently, but the whole family loved this – yeh!! Just love your recipes 🙂
