This is probably my favorite vegetarian pizza.

I recently decided to become a vegetarian for health reasons. The thought of giving up pizza was the worst part of doing the life-style change. Never before would I eat pizza without meat. And fresh tomatoes on top was just gross, but this is the yummiest pizza! I used a four-cheese DiGorno rising crust pizza which gave it a more realistic "real" (not frozen) pizza crust taste and texture. I used the 1/2 cup pesto sauce per the ingredients. I felt like that was too much pesto for the pizza. Next time, I might cut it down slightly. 3-5 tomatoes was way too many. I sliced 2 whole, medium sized tomatoes, and it was more than enough to cover the top. I followed the note about sprinkling the tomatoes with salt. I'm not sure how much that affected the end result but they tomatoes were good either way; which is difficult for me to say! All-in-all, I really enjoyed this pizza! I no longer feel deprived of my favorite foods. It really hits the spot and tastes like a good restaurant quality pizza. This is a keeper! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!! =)
Directions See How It's Made
- Using a Tablespoon or other large spoon, drop the pesto sauce in blobs on the cheese pizza (use more or less pesto sauce as desired).
- Bake the cheese pizza in the oven per pizza recipe or package instructions.
- Remove baked pizza and top with fresh ripe tomato slices.
- Sprinkle the tomatoes with the grated Parmesan cheese (or salt and pepper). The tomatoes taste better with a bit of saltiness.
- Serve at once.
