      Congratulations on creating an imaginative and healthy vegetarian recipe using the Ready Set Cook #16 Contest ingredients! I was pleased to be a tester since this was so delicious! The macadamias were so good in the pesto that I might not use pine nuts again :-) This was my first time using flaxseed meal and the crust was easy and very good. Because of the dense pesto and fiber in the crust, one slice is very filling so the recipe can serve 6-8. I froze some of my pieces individually and they reheated beautifully.
