Instead of pizza sauce, used basil pesto, and the combination of the toppings worked deliciously well together. Cheddar and parmesan really added tons of yummy cheesiness, which was absolutely delicious with the toppings.

Love pizza, I can eat pizza all-day long. Last week was a pizza week. I made a bunch of whole wheat pizza dough, after rising, simply put it in a zip-lock bag with a bit oil in (it prevents the dough from sticking to the bag). Then made several different pizzas with it.

This was one of them, instead of pizza sauce, used basil pesto, and the combination of the toppings worked deliciously well together. Cheddar and parmesan really added tons of yummy cheesiness, which was absolutely delicious with the toppings.

Needless to say that it only lasted a very short time, about 6 minutes. Hmmm, so good!
