How I have never thought to do this before is beyond me! I mean I have been cooking and creating recipes for 25 years and I NEVER thought of putting pesto on a pizza. I am a little ashamed, I’m not going to lie!
It all started last week when I made Garlic Scape Pesto from the garden! It was so delicious, I started brainstorming recipes that I could use it with. I had just picked up some juicy tomatoes at the farmers market and I had mozzarella in the fridge. The light bulb went off!
I made this recipe with a Oat Pizza Crust because I am gluten free, but this recipe is super simple and will work with any crust or pesto recipe you have (or you can just use mine, that is ok too!)
PESTO TOMATO PIZZA
1 x Pizza Crust
1 x Jar of Pesto
3 x cups shredded mozzarella
2 x Tomatoes, thinly sliced
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Fresh basil leaves (optional)
Spread your pesto on your crust in a thin (or thick, depending on your taste!) layer. Add your shredded cheese and tomato slices. Pop in the over for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Let sit for 5 minutes, slice and eat!
