Made for PRMR!!! Great flavors. We really thought this was fantastic. We did use provel cheese instead of mozzarella as that is our cheese of choice for pizza. It will be making a reappearance at our house. Thanks so much.
Made for Spring PAC 2013, mainly because there is only 1 place in Iceland that makes a good pizza & its 45 mi away! Pita bread is my go-to start when I crave a pizza & this recipe worked very well for us w/some pers pref chgs. DH sadly does not care for spinach, so I left that out & also reduced the jalapeno for his sake. I esp loved using red pesto here, but could not imagine a pizza w/o garlic so I added it generously. The rest was made as written & DH was mighty happy as he "made his pizza disappear". Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :)
This is so yummy. Great flavors. I omitted the chicken cause I didn't have it. But used bacon. I used only mozzarella on top. This was filling enough for me. Thanks ~Nimz~ :) Made for PRMR tag game
