Flat Bread Pizza with Avocado and Roasted Carrots

It was only by the time that fast food came along that destroyed the pizza image and this is what Joy Zhang's recipe proved wrong. With avocado and roasted carrots as a healthy topping, pizza will remain a beautiful dish made for healthy eaters. 

Ingredients: 
2 whole flatbreads or gyro bread (I personally prefer gyro bread)
1/2 lime, squeezed  
1 tsp olive oil
1 spoonful habanero pepper jam (any type of pepper jam will work here)
1/2 cup romaine lettuce, cleaned and thinly sliced
1/2 large avocado, pitted and cubed
1 cup roasted carrots  
1/8 cup sweet onion, thinly sliced  

Directions: 
  1. Place flatbreads in a toaster oven and bake until warm and slightly crispy around the edges, about 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile prep your dressing: in a small bowl whisk lime juice, olive oil and jam until thoroughly incorporated. Set aside. 
  2. Prep remaining ingredients (slice romaine, cube avocado, slice onion). 
  3. Carefully remove flatbreads from oven (use a fork if needed as it will be hot) and place on a plate. In a large bowl, toss sliced romaine with dressing and place onto flat bread. Place avocado and roasted carrots and top with sliced onions and a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt. Finish with a drizzle of high-quality olive oil if preferred.
