Recipe: Ultra Low Carb Smashed Avo on Toasted Pumpkin

(per slice) 764kcal / 7.5 P / 3 C / 36 F

I created this recipe purely because I got a new Garlic and Rosemary Olive Oil I wanted to try. I wanted to put it with something that wouldn't require me to cook it so I could experience the full flavour. 


Ingredients

  • Two slices of butternut pumpkin

  • 1/2 an avocado

  • Rosemary & Garlic Olive Oil (here) - or normal will work :)

  • 50g feta

  • Handful of walnuts

Method

  1. Preheat grill, or use your oven's grill feature at 215C (420F)

  2. Line a tray with baking paper and place 2 slices of pumpkin on

  3. Do not add anything to the pumpkin, we do not want it to go too soft while cooking! Cook for 15-20 mins, keep an eye on it. The skin should brown.

  4. While the pumpkin is cooking place the avocado and feta in a bowl and mash with a fork.

  5. Separately, chop the walnuts up into small pieces.

  6. Once the pumpkin is finished remove it from the oven and place the pieces on a plate

  7. Add avocado and feta mix on top

  8. Drizzle olive oil over the avocado

  9. Sprinkle walnuts on top to finish!

Method

  1. After removing your pizza base from the oven spread a small amount of sugar-free BBQ sauce onto the base
  2. Add onion, bacon, chicken, and green capsicum
  3. (optional) Press down on them a little to ensure they all stay in place haha
  4. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over the top (if you allow a bit to get on the crusts it will make them extra crispy!)
  5. Put back in the oven for 10 minutes
  6. Remove and add a swirl of mayonnaise on top of the pizza
  7. Put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes, or until the edges of the crust are beginning to look crisp.
