Caprese Avocado Grilled Pitas
Caprese Avocado Grilled Pitas make a simple and easy vegetarian dinner that's healthy and delicious!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 2 servings
- 2 pita rounds
- 2 tbsp basil pesto
- 8 slices mozzarella cheese I used the mozzarella balls
- 1 large ripe tomato sliced
- 1 avocado sliced lengthwise into wedges
- extra virgin olive oil for the grill pan
Cut each pita round in half to make 4 pockets. Open each pocket and spread the pesto on both sides. Layer one slice of mozzarella inside each of the 4 pita pockets, top with slices of tomato and avocado, and end with another slice of mozzarella. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat and add just enough olive oil to slick the surface. Place the pita pockets in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cheese is melted.
*Flexitarian tip: Add slices of crisp bacon to the pitas before grilling.
