    Just Call Me Martha's Note:

    This Mediterranean-style pizza is a wonderful change to everyday pizza. It's a great summertime dish to make when basil and tomatoes are in season. Althought you can use prepared pesto, I normally make my own which has quite a hint of lemon in it. Do not substitute dried basil - it just won't work. This would also make a great appetizer if sliced in very thin wedges.

      AWESOME! Wonderful and very tasty. I used homemade pizza crust and pesto. I subbed mozzarella because I didn't have the bocconcini. The fresh basil is a must! DH loved it - definitely will be a favorite recipe at our house. Thanks JCMM!

      I served this as an appetizer at a cocktail party. I made my own dough, but followed everything else exactly. It was excellent! The roasted tomatoes are intense and the bocconcini is a nice addition. Definitely use the fresh basil. Very flavorful, but not heavy. Everyone loved it!
