pesto pizza


A few years ago, one of my staple snacks/meals was a pesto “pizza.” It satisfies that pizza craving without the typical calories that go along with pizza delivery. More importantly, chances are I have the three ingredients necessary at all times.

It’s nice enough to serve as an appetizer for friends and delicious enough for dinner. :)

Pesto Pizzas

  • 1 French Meadow Bakery Sprouted Grain Tortilla (that is the only tortilla I’ve ever used to make this)
  • 2 Tbsp prepared pesto
  • 2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese

Pre-heat oven to 400°.

Put tortilla in oven for about three minutes.

Remove from oven, flip over and spread pesto on down-facing side.

Sprinkle with cheese and bake for about 3 minutes.

Cut into wedges and serve.

    My staple meal in grad school and college was triscuits + cheese in the oven. Yours is a little fancier. :)

    I love pesto. It elevates the flavor of so many things.

      I’m not allowed to buy triscuits. I can eat an entire box in about two days. (with a block of cheese of course) :)
