Review This Recipe
This is a terrific recipe and a delicious departure from the standard tomato sauce pizzas. It was literally ready in minutes. We added actually chicken to ours. Perfect! Thanks.
My family except my son loved the pizza. It had a different flavor than traditional pizza. We also added jalapeno's, onions and small amount of sausage. We also added Romano and Parmesan cheese along with mozerella.
Wow, this is so good! I love this because you can add anything you want and it turns out good. I added black olives, tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions. I also used the bread maker and used regular bread dough cycle. Turned out wonderful, my husband and I didnt even share with the kids!
Good, but too oily
this was good, however, I found that the pesto sauce made the pizza crust too oily and heavy. Perhaps making a fresh homemade pesto sauce would cut down on the oil content.
I added tomaotes and onion for a little extra flavor. It was a good taste. I would make this again.
This pizza was great! I did, however, make my own pizza crust; it was thin and crispy. I added some Roma tomatoes for a little color, and it was great! I will make it again!
I tried this last night, based on other reviews posted. It was excellent. Only I made a couple of variations. I used a jar of garlic mushrooms, added shredded chicken, used crust, and (Parmesan, Asegio, and Romano) cheese in stead of Mozzarella.
Light Pesto Mushroom Pizza
This is a great pizza! I don't normally find a recipe that doesn't need modifying to some degree. This one doesn't. It's perfect the way it is. I'm not a big mushroom fan, but my husband is and he loved it! He also liked the fact that I didn't feel the need to change it -- it's super and is now a staple in our family's recipes!
LOVE this recipe
This recipe was SO GOOD! Have made it several times and it's better each time. What makes it even better is that it only takes about 5 minutes to throw together, and the clean up is even quicker. LOVE this recipe!
This was an excellent recipe. I only used a 1/2 cup of pesto, and that was plenty. I also added Italian-style chicken and it was fantabulous!
I made this a few weeks ago for the family that I'm an au pair for. They loved it, and it was a huge hit with the five year old. I wouldn't add all the pesto b/c it seems like too much, but other than that..very easy :)
I made this pizza on Tuesday, ate more than half by the time my husband came home. I had to STOP myself so that he could try it. I added spinach and next time (which will be Saturday) I will add artichoke and onions. Easy recipe with great results!
Light Pesto MushroomPpizza
This is absolutely wonderful. I made a mistake and only bought 1/2 the pesto the recipe required. Ended up w/about 1/4 cup on the pizza. (I made two). And I think it was the perfect amount. 1/2 cup would have been too strong. It is easy to make and again, just delicious.
This Pizza was Wonderful. It was what I was looking for. It was simple and easy and was the best pizza I ever had. My family gave me two thumbs up and a nightful of smiles.
Some kind of pizza!
I've made the pizza twice in one week. It's some kind of pizza. Dominoes or Pizza Hut has nothing on this pizza. It's in a class all by itself. It's just that good.
This is really worth trying! Very easy, very quick, and not a lot to clean up, I sprayed my cookie sheet with a garlic spray for the pizza crust to sit in, added onions, and 1/2 a can of crushed garlic and basil tomatoes to spead around. My picky boyfiend loved it!
Fabulous & So Simple!
This pizza is fantastic! With only 4 ingredients (including the crust!), what could be simpler? My husband is a pepperoni, red sauce only pizza guy -- I didn't think he'd even try this one. His comment after eating this pizza was "this is just as good as pepperoni"! That's a major statement from him! This pizza is really worth trying -- it's so simple and fast to make. If your family loves mushrooms, this is sure to be a big hit!
Quick, Easy & Delicious!
This is a fantastic recipe for a mid-week meal. My family couldn't get enough! I used a Boboli thin crust, which worked very well, and low fat cheese. Next time I will experiment with other vegetables, such as artichokes or tomatoes.
Very good - and so easy!
This was a delicious. Even better, it is so quick and easy to make! I used a Boboli thin crust, which worked very well. I will definitely make this again and experiment with other toppings, such as tomatoes or artichoke hearts.
VERY good & so easy!!
This was soooo good. If you like cheese and mushrooms, you'll love this!
I did have a hard time finding a pizza crust to use... I finally found a canned Pillsbury Pizza Crust, and it worked great! Just cook for about 10 minutes, add the ingredients, and cook for 5 more minutes - delicious!!!
I think next time, I might add some tomatoes to it too.
