If you like pesto and pizza, you will definitely like this pesto pizza! I always have a batch of homemade pizza dough in the freezer and I just took it out the night before to defrost for dinner time the next day. I also used my favorite pesto sauce from Costco. This pesto pizza is quick and simple, especially if you already have the ingredients on hand. You can also use a store bought pizza dough, I have heard that Trader Joe's has a good one but I haven't tried it yet. Enjoy!
1 batch homemade pizza dough (recipe here)
2 – 3 tablespoons pesto sauce (I used Kirkland’s brand from Costco.)
10 slices fresh mozzarella
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Grease baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
Roll out dough and press down onto a greased baking sheet.
Spoon pesto sauce onto rolled out pizza dough.
Lay mozzarella slices evenly on top.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, until edges of dough are crisp and cheese is melted.
