"An easy pizza deserves an easy salad, so open a bag of Caesar salad, sit back and enjoy." — Buitoni, courtesy of meals.com
1 (12 inch)
pizza crust or Italian bread shell
plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
BUITONI® Refrigerated Pesto with Basil
1 1/2 cups
shredded mozzarella cheese
crushed red pepper
This was pretty good did make some changes. I used fresh mozzarella. Next time I will make homemade pesto and not put as much on it. It was a little strong.
One of my favorite pizza styles, however I didn't use the pesto & basil combo. I instead sprinkled the crust with red pepper flakes, then layered the cheese, the tomato slices, the fresh chopped basil, and a little more cheese on top. Now THAT'S pizza margherita!
I used homemade pesto and Jay's Crust from this site, but store bought would have tasted good as well. I used regular sliced tomatoes, and added basil leaves. I seasoned it with just a bit of garlic salt and oregano, then topped it with mozzarella and parmesan. This came out wonderfully! I love a simple pizza.
