Recipe by WildLightning
READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • Place the ingredients for the dough in the bread machine in the order given (ending with the yeast). Set to the dough cycle.
  • When done, remove to floured board, if using immediately. Or place in a bowl greased with olive oil, turn to coat it, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Shape pizza dough into a crust, roughly 15 inches, and place on a lightly floured cookie sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated 400 degree oven for about 8 minutes until mostly baked. (Sometimes piercing the dough with a fork beforehand helps keep air bubbles away).
  • Let crust cool for a few minutes before adding toppings.
  • Starting in the middle of the crust, spread out the pesto sauce in a circular motion until the pizza dough is covered.
  • Sprinkle with one cup of cheese.
  • Spread out remaining ingredients, holding the cheese back for last. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the toppings.
  • Bake in a 400 degree oven until cheese is a light golden brown. (Approx 8-10 minutes).
