Pesto Pine Nut Pizza

For the longest time I was befuddled by making my own pizza crust. It seemed that no matter how many people assured me that their recipe was the easiest, no-fail solution, I would somehow fail. Then for Christmas I got a pizza stone and magically my pizzas were amazing! Was it the stone? Or was it my latest “no-fail” crust recipe? I will never know, but one of those two things revolutionized my pizza making and I am consistently pleased with the results!

And as far as homemade pizzas go, this is my favorite version. With a flavorful pesto sauce and amazing toppings. Really, you can get creative with the toppings, just be sure to use pesto (I just use a packet mix) as the sauce and you will be golden! This particular pizza had mushrooms, pine nuts, red onion, artichoke hearts and spinach. It was so good that we had almost eaten it all by the time I remembered to take a picture!

Instructions
  1. Preheat pizza stone (ideally you would heat your stone for at least 45 minutes at 475, but I never ever remember to do this and it always turns out alright!). Roll out prepared pizza dough and place on pizza peel. Top pizza dough with pesto, spreading all the way out to outer edges of the dough. Layer on cheese and additional toppings. Bake for 8-10 minutes until nicely browned.
