This is one of my family's favorites. I also like to make small ones using french bread or sourdough slices for an easy lunch. I sometimes add mozzarella if I'm in the mood. It makes it milder. great served with a spring greens salad.

We've had this twice in as many weeks, so that alone deserves 5 stars. We have tons of Basil in our garden at the moment and afer making a super-yum Recipe #8650, Matt made us pita pesto pizzas. Mushrooms were added, but no time. :) Thanks for sharing this simple, tasty recipe, Jacq.

I had just made my first batch of pesto and was looking for something to use it for....ohmigosh! This was so good! Had a girlfriend over for lunch, and she loved it, so did my husband! I used the mozarella because that's what I had on hand, and added some slivers of mild green peppers from the garden, Fast, easy, delicious!
