Bacon Avocado Pizza

I love the chicken club pizza from California Pizza Kitchen.  They use all the wonderful items in a chicken club sandwich as toppings for a pizza.  It’s genius.  It also really helps that I love chicken club sandwiches.Baconcado Pizza 1

I don’t know what it is, but bacon and avocado just go so well together.  They make can take a regular chicken sandwich and make it an AMAZING chicken sandwich!  Why not take those two delicious ingredients and turn a regular cheese pizza into something even better?

Enter the bacon avocado pizza.  I didn’t use any sauce because I didn’t want to take away from the amazing flavors that are already present.  I also don’t like pizza sauce very much.  I don’t hate all pizza sauces, but I feel like only a small amount, or none at all is needed.
