  3. Bake in preheated oven, until crust is browned and pizza is hot and bubbly, about 10 minutes.

Flavor was a tad overwhelming and the crust is not what we like. We will try it again with a couple changes. Use a premade crust, less pesto and 1/2 marinated mozarella and 1/2 regular. That is most likely just a spice preference that my family has. Overall I liked the something other than red sauce pizza.



Yummy! The more pesto sauce, the better!



This was great. I followed the recipe as stated, then added caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. Delicious blend of flavors between the pesto and mozzarella. Yum.
