Homemade pizza with pesto, tomatoes, and basil
  • 1 pizza crust, store bought or homemade
  • ¼ cup prepared pesto
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella

  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet or a pizza stone with parchment paper. Roll out pizza dough over parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove crust from oven and spread with pesto. Top with mozzarella cheese. Place spoonfuls of ricotta cheese over the crust. Top with tomatoes and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust reaches desired crispness.
