Avocado and Goat's Cheese Pizza

I always end up with a very rustic looking base when I make pizza. I can't get it to roll out in that perfect circle, nonetheless it is always lovely and crispy. I had never considered putting avocado on a pizza but it really works, and is a lovely and creamy addition to this pizza.

Avocado and Goat's Cheese Pizza (adapted from A Thyme for Cooking)
(Serves 2-4)

1 packet pizza dough mix
2 tbsp pesto
3 tomatoes, very thinly sliced
4 thin slices Prosciutto, torn into pieces
1 ripe avocado, sliced
2 tsp dried oregano
50g goat's cheese, sliced
50g cheddar/mozzarella, grated
Mix together the pizza dough according to the packet instructions.
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Spread the pesto over the pizza dough base and arrange the tomato slices on top. Next add the prosciutto and avocado slices.
Sprinkle with oregano, top with the cheese.
Bake in the oven, 18 – 20 mins, or until the crust and top are golden brown. Serve
