|White Pizza with Pesto|
Who wouldn’t love this white pizza made with three cheeses and a savory pesto? You can assemble it quickly on pita bread anytime people stop by, but it’s also a great little meal for when you don’t have much time to cook. It takes just 10 minutes to assemble and then 15 minutes in the oven. A good deal all around.
This is a thin and crispy crust with low carbs. According to the reviewers this is totally yummy the way the recipe is written, but you can use it as a base for other favorite toppings. I’m thinking sun-dried tomatoes and bits of canned artichokes would be wonderful also. You could make a variety of these mini-pizzas to display for a party and cut them into eighths or sixths to be appetizer sized pieces.
The mix of cheeses with the pesto makes these a bit gourmet, in my opinion. I think they’d be wonderful at any party you might have in the coming holiday season. Come to think of it, with grape tomato halves or the sun-dried tomato bits would turn this into a Christmas colored pizza. The recipe calls for using whole wheat pitas (lots of flavor besides being healthy), but you can use plain pita bread it you prefer.
