    Miss Erin's Note:

    I make these a lot. I don't like meat on pizza, and I'm not really fond of tomato sauces either, so this is my favorite pizza. The sweetness of the onions is great with the mozzarella and the pesto.

      This is very good! For comparisons sake, I made this on 1 large regular thickness pizza crust. I used about 3/4c of pesto (it could have used a little more), 4 onions, and about 3c cheese. Thanks for the great recipe Miss Erin.....

      I made these the other night using a variation on Arugula and Walnut Pesto, doubling the recipe here to make two twelve-inch pizzas. Like another reviewer suggested, I reduced the brown sugar by half, and I think they turned out great. Thanks for posting!

      We love pizza in my household and make it every Sunday evening. I made some homemade pesto from the garden basil last Summer, so I've been looking for recipes using pesto this is a tasty keeper Miss Erin!! Like others, I omitted the sugar. I used a very large Vidalia onion carmelized in olive oil. Since I was a kid, we've made the crust with Pillsbury Hot Roll mix. Just follow the directions on the box for an excellent thick or thin crust.
