1 Flatbread Crust (We used a store bought whole grain flatbread)

Olive Oil (enough to brush the flatbread with)



Garlic Powder

1 Large Avocado Sliced

1 Cup of Cooked Cubed Chicken Breast (To keep it simple, we used a rotisserie chicken - breast meat.)

1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flatbread on a baking sheet. Lightly brush the flatbread with olive oil and sprinkle, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Next, place avocado slices to cover the flatbread, leaving a border around for crust. Add the chicken, and put in the oven for approximately 8 minutes. Cooking times may vary depending on what type of flatbread you use. Follow the cooking directions on the flatbread package. When there's about 1 minute of baking time left, add the mozzarella. Once the mozzarella is melted your Chicken and Avocado Flatbread Pizza is ready to serve!
