I hate to brag, but this one is delicious! This is Pesto/Tomato/Spinach Pizza, with homemade Pesto sauce. So easy, and SO good!
GF Pizza crust, prepared per package instructions
3 Roma Tomatoes, diced
enough baby spinach leaves to cover pizza
1-1 1/2 cups mozerella cheese
1 recipe homemade Pesto
3 c. Fresh Basil (I buy mine at Whole Foods)
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced (I use 2.5 tsp of the bottled/refridgerated stuff)
1/4 c. pine nuts
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
dash pepper
Blend ingredients in blender or food processor (this takes a little TLC in my blender)
Spread sauce evenly on crust. Top with spinach leaves, however many you want. Top those with all the tomatoes, then cover with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.
About crust. I've never made a crust from scratch, perhaps one day, but not today. It took me some trial/error to find crust mixes that I like. I like the Gluten-Free Pantry French Bread & Pizza Crust mix, but it's really really soft. Blue Chip (I buy this at Macey's) has a pizza crust mix that has the texture of actual pizza crust. The best part? It has enough for 3 pizzas! Since this discovery we go through at least one package per month. This is another product Phil says tastes "real", so there you go.
Here's one last look, in case you weren't already convinced.
