    25 min

    This pizza is fab. Trust me, there will be no leftovers. Pesto comes together with other savoury ingredients to make a killer pizza.

    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.  -  05 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    To many strong flavors between the basil pesto, the grilling seasoning, the rosemary and the blue cheese. Next time I will probably try more of a white pizza with the blue cheese, steak and mozzarella.  -  26 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
