We adore these chicken avocado sandwiches! Served on fried pizza bread, they are filled with roasted red pepper mayo, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Super delicious!

This sandwich is my newest obsession.

This chicken avocado sandwich is served with roasted red pepper mayo on a fluffy fried pizza dough bread, topped with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. It’s deeeeelish.

I love recipes like this. It’s not too much of a RECIPE. It’s more so a method + an idea. A method for how I make a delicious meal and you can use your favorite ingredients to fill in the extras! 

You know how sometimes you just want a really GOOD sandwich?!

This is that.

It’s incredible. So satisfying. Super flavorful.

I feel like I could eat this every single day and never get sick of it!

We make a lot of homemade pizza. It’s a versatile meal in our home because I’ll make traditional pizza, I’ll grill it, make it in a cast iron skillet, use a deep pan for a detroit-style crust or get it as thin as possible for a crispy thin crust. 

It never necessarily tastes “the same” and there is always a lot of variety in our pizza.

Since I’ve been down the sourdough rabbit hole, I’ve been using the discard from my starter to make overnight pizza dough. I use this recipe often. It’s a game changer and we all love it so much. I could live on sourdough bread, so sourdough pizza is just what I need. 

This works with ANY pizza dough though. I make these little fry breads with my pizza dough recipe or the sourdough pizza dough. They taste so incredibly indulgent, fluffy and cloud-like. 

And must I say that they only get better when stuffed?! Add your favorite sandwich ingredients inside one of these and you will be in heaven.

Here’s the rundown:

First, the pizza dough sandwiches. We love a local burger that is served on a folded slab of pizza dough. It is SO fabulous. That was my inspiration here. Also, an old chicken sandwich from the cheesecake factory that is no longer on the menu!

For the filling, I’m using grilled chicken. But you can use just about anything you love. 

Avocado, tomato, shredded lettuce. The shredded lettuce is key! I like to get fresh romaine lettuce and chop it myself. This means it will have the ultimate crisp freshness. I also add some quick pickled onions if I have them in the fridge. 

Cheese! Of course. You can do slices of cheese or shredded cheese – heck, whatever kind of cheese you want! Ideally, I like to put this on the chicken right when I start stacking the sandwich so it kind of melts into meat. Of course, the chicken doesn’t HAVE to be warm. But it’s really delicious if it is warm.

Finally, roasted red pepper mayo. Just a quick little mix made with diced roasted red peppers and prepared mayonnaise. I also like to drizzle in a bit of the olive oil from the jar of roasted reds.

This doesn’t seem like much, but it tastes PHENOMENAL. Like, so so so so good. And of course, you can use the pizza dough for any kind of sandwich. I’ve also been making caesar ones on repeat for lunch. Romaine or kale caesar salad, chicken or chickpeas, stuffed into the puffy bread with dressing and shaved parm. 


Perhaps my favorite part of this whole thing is that you can make the pizza dough breads ahead of time. Make them in one big batch and store them in the fridge. When it’s time to build your sandwich, simply reheat your bread (toaster oven, regular oven, even a microwave) and you’re good to go. 

I am in LOVE.

  • 1 batch of prepared pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup diced roasted red peppers
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • cup freshly grated havarti cheese
  • 4 to 6 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • sliced tomatoes or chopped cherry tomatoes


  • Make the pizza dough fry bread first! Divide your pizza dough into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion out until it’s thin but not ripping.
  • Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add one of the circles of dough. Cook it for 1 to 2 minutes until it begins to bubble. Flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, make sure the dough is cooked through. Transfer it to a plate and repeat with remaining dough. You may need an extra drizzle of olive oil to the pan towards the end! You can make these ahead of time and store them in the fridge. I do like them to be warm or room temp for the sandwiches.
  • Make the red pepper mayo. Whisk together the mayo, diced peppers and garlic clove. Add a drizzle of oil from the jar of peppers if you wish! You can also make this ahead of time and store it in the fridge.
  • Preheat the grill to high for at least 10 minutes. I like mine around 500 or 550 degrees. Season the chicken all over with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder.
  • Place the chicken on the grates and grill for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove the chicken and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, spread the mayo on one of the breads. Top with the chicken and grated cheese. Top with the avocado, shredded lettuce and tomatoes. Serve immediately!
