"Presto!" Pesto Pizza!

pizza recipes

Hey everyone! I don't know about you, but sometimes we have a pretty hectic schedule around here... and that means sometimes I have to make dinner super quick, and get creative. I've showed you one of my kiddos favorites BBQ Chicken Pizza , and now I'll show you one of mine and my husbands favorites. Its super simply.

What you need:

Refridgerator Pizza Dough ( I get mine at Safeway for less than $2.00)
Sausage, cooked and crumbled
Fresh Spinach
Feta cheese

Now, I don't call for certain amounts of anything because its all to taste, and you are smart, you can figure it out ;)
Just use the pesto for the sauce, layer fresh spinach on top, then sprinkle crumbled sausage and feta on the top. Place in baking sheet and cook for about 15minutes @ 375, or until crust is slightly browned.

What are your favorite ways to make pizza? I'm always looking for more ideas! You can link them up to my party: Create.Simplify.Inspire.

  13. Oh, I love pesto-base pizza. I do one that's quite similar where you mix cream cheese and pesto and use that as your base, then you spinkle with chopped marinated artichokes, sundried tomatoes, and slices of bocconchini. Yum! It's one of my favorites!
