Polenta pizza with avocado pesto! Another delicious and powerful variation of the gluten-free pesto pizza, and I love the ease because it is a dish pizza and doesn’t involve rolling out the crust! Polenta has a way of absorbing lots of flavors so feel free to experiment with your own favorites too, it will reward you 😉 Here is the recipe:
