1. Toast the sliced bread in the Cuisinart Toaster Oven, preferably to a medium-light doneness.
2. While bread is toasting, prepare the avocado topping. Combine the avocado, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Mash with a fork to desired consistency.
3. Once bread is toasted, divide the mashed avocado on top of each slice. Top with the tomatoes, if using, pepitas and chili flakes or paprika.
