Thank you for reviewing 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.
