One of my favorite pizzas

Top Review by The T-MAC

This was really easy to make and has a nice presentation, even with my very limited chef skills. It is as pretty as it is delicious. I bought basil pesto instead of using fresh basil, and it soaked in and blended well with the rest of the toppings. This was an automatic favorite in our house! Thanks for sharing!
