Arugula Pesto Pizza...and being sick!

Everyone here was sick over the weekend. T. started it on Friday. Youngest daughter Saturday morning and oldest daughter Saturday night and me Sunday morning! Thankfully it doesn't seem to be lasting very long. But I need sleep...lots of sleep. I am going to post and go to sleep!

Arugula Pesto Pizza

Favorite store bought pizza dough or crust or Homemade Bread Machine Pizza Dough
Arugula Pesto or Basil Pesto (store bought will be fine)
olive oil
shredded mozzarella cheese
fresh thin sliced tomato (laid on paper towel to help drain and dry a bit)

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Shape pizza dough. Mix olive oil with pesto to thin it out a bit. Spread lightly onto pizza dough (you are using this in place of sauce). Add Mozzarella on top and tomato slices. Cook til cheese is hot and bubbly!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

I love pizza and this looks good. Thanks for the recipe. I guess everyone feels better by now.

Oh man I need to make some pizza from scratch. And by scratch I mean using store-bought dough. :D

I made pizza kinda like yours once, using goat cheese and pesto for the sauce, but had a topping of chanterelles (I pick them, I'm not rich) and arugula, with a little romano on top. It was the best pizza ever.

Hey farmgirl - thanks and yes we are all feeling better now! Just a quick hit this time.

Heather-That's sounds so good! I love anything with goat cheese and pesto. You actually pick your own mushrooms?

Hey I never thought to blot the tomatos on a paper towel. Guess that's why I need you.
