Grilled Pesto Avocado Pizza

My oldest son works at Stonefire Grill, so we eat there quite a bit. Their pesto pizza, or Stonefire’s Favorite Pizzais so good, I knew I had to try to make my own spin. And, since June is National Avocado Month, I know it’s peak season for California Avocados! With that combination, I knew I would have a hit on my hands! Now, you can have your very own tasty grilled pesto pizza even if you don’t live near a Stonefire Grill.

What Do You Put on Pesto Pizza?

To make this grilled pizza recipe I used California Avocados, my Best Homemade Pesto, sweet red onion, feta cheese, mozzarella, and fresh basil on my Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Crust to make this delicious Stonefire pizza copycat recipe.

Using homemade pesto as the sauce makes this pizza really stand out from the crowd! I love the fresh, rich flavor of a good basil pesto sauce, and it’s the perfect match for pizza. If you love the idea of pesto pizza but you need something super quick, you’ll love this Pesto Pita Bread Pizza.
