Pesto “Pizza” – Passover

Posted on

Basil and avocado – two of my favorite things in the entire world. (I feel like I say that about a lot of things….oops?) I’m a believer that anything with either of these two ingredients is bound to be delicious. This Passover, I’ve been eating avocado every single day. Without my usual beans and tofu, what ELSE is a girl to do!?

I made this today and it was gooooood.

What You Need:

1 box of basil leaves

4 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup pine nuts

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 cup of olive oil

1 tomato

1/2 an avocado

1 piece of matzah

What You Do:

To make the pesto – put the garlic, pine nuts, basil, oil, and spices in a food processor and blend away. Taste as you go until its jussssst right. Spread the pesto on the matzah, add on sliced tomatoes and avocado, sprinkle with salt and ground pepper. Pop in the oven at 400 degrees for 5-8 minutes (careful – the matzah will burn!) and enjoy.

Note: Matzah can be a tricky little thing, especially when using it for pizza or sandwiches. It breaks very easily. A trick to prevent the breaking is to lightly wet the matzah before using it. Sprinkle a few drops of water on it and spread around with your fingers. It gives it more….flexibility, if you will.
