  • Layer each crust with plum tomato; sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese. (Or, layer with just cheese, using 3 ounces thinly sliced fresh mozzarella.) Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.

  • Transfer to a baking sheet; bake until cheese has melted and crust is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Slice, and serve immediately.

One of our favorite homemade pizza's. I make fresh pesto without the nuts (my little one is allergic), and sometimes add broccoli. I also use fresh mozzarella, slice it and place it here and there, so good!

DELICIOUS!!! I used a Flatout Italian Herb wrap instead of pizza crust--also I was running out of mozzarella so I supplemented with parmesan. I also added torn up spinach which was greeeat! I coated the wrap with a thin layer of pesto but I will probably use less next time--due to floppiness in the center. But I just love crunchy pizza! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Try Pita bread, spread pesto over top, sprinkle with the ramano cheese, chopped sundried tomatoes, bake for a few minutes, cut as a pizza and oh my so good. Could even add a few artichoke hearts.

I used jar pesto, and I do think it probably tastes better with fresh (what doesn't?) but it did great and was still VERY tasty.
