    little_wing's Note:

    Came up with this one for pizza night...A hit with everyone in my family. Great with chicken or shrimp...whatever you have leftover. I think the balance of the savory pesto with the sweetness of tomato and caramelized onions turned out really nice. If you use a sweet onion such as Vidalia, you can omit the sugar. I used Kittencal's Perfect Pesto with great results. Hope you enjoy!

      WOW!! DH and I had this last night and it was amazing!! We were unable to find roasted garlic so we mixed regular garlic with a 1/4 cup more pesto and spread that on the crust as well. We paired this with "WILDFLOURs" Cheese and Pesto stuffed mushrooms it was a delicious meal!! Thanks. We are fighting over the leftovers today:)

      I used raw shrimps and it was so good. I omitted the garlic cause there was enough in the store-bough pesto I got. And I'm not a garlic fan. I wanted to give 5 stars and my BF 4 stars. But I decided to give a 5. It was really different and tasty. Thanks Little_Wing. Made for PLease review my recipe.
