This is a great recipe for a different kind of pizza. It's heavy on the flavors, but you don't feel stuffed after eating it. The recipe was actually born of an experiment performed by myself and a friend on a Sunday night. Be creative, though... last time I made it, I spread pine nuts over the surface and it was terrific!

FANTASTIC RECIPE! WOULD'VE COST $20 IN A RESTAURANT, but I made it for under 10! It was light and flavorful, but bold and filling! I added some leftover chicken strips and omitted the olives. Very easy to make, yet original!

This tasted like something that might be served in an upscale restaurant. I used a whole grain pita for my crust, and omitted the olive oil (since my pesto already had oil in it.) Plenty of fresh toppings made for a very flavorful and hearty meal, and it only took a few minutes to throw together - not much more time than opening a frozen pizza, really.

Made this last night. I absolutely loved the colors and flavors of this pizza. I used a thin crust which is my preferred crust for Mediterranean pizzas I've purchased from restaurants. One thing to note, if you buy pesto sauce, check the oil content. I didn't do that, so there was just a little too much oil. I still loved it though. I can't wait to make it again.
