Citrusy Shrimp and Avocado Pizza with Cashew Sauce

A Dairy-Free Pizza topped with Pink Pomelo, Shrimp and Avocado

Delightfully different, this pizza has a perfect balance of flavours that will satisfy winter cravings for something colourful and interesting.  A creamy, Asian-inspired cashew sauce ties together the pomelo, shrimp and avocado topping medley.  While a sprinkling of cilantro would be nice, it isn’t essential.  To save an extra trip to store, I worked with what I had on hand and was quite happy with the results–well worth repeating.  Why not say goodbye to your food ruts and try this pizza for lunch or add it to the table for dinner this week?
