Pesto Pizza

Dinner tonight was yum-my if I do say so myself! Pesto pizza is something me, Meghan, and Claire started making last year, and were slightly obsessed with! It is SO delicious!


GALS 373pizza crust of your choice (this one was tasty! )

Spread the pesto on the pizza crust, then add whatever veggies float your boat! For tonight’s pesto pizza I added green peppers, onions, and spinach.

I also sprinkled on a little of this seasoning that I found in my parents’ pantry:

GALS 375

The next step is pretty crucial – CHEEEEESE! I added mozzarella, but you could add whatever kind of cheese you like.

Finally I tossed it in the oven to bake at 425 for about ten minutes, or until all the cheese was melted and the edges of the crust looked brown.

I roasted the cauliflower at the same time, but put it in first so it could roast for about 25 minutes. To season the cauliflower I put some pesto on it, then sprinkled on salt and pepper.

The final product:

So. Good. The parents gave it rave reviews as well, but I think they are required to. Winking smile

My mom had the idea to make a special drink to go along with this meal, so I got right on it! In the blender I combined:

  • one cup of water
  • a few handfuls of ice
  • 1/2 cup of lemon juice
  • 8 frozen strawberries
  • a few sprinkles of Truvia sweetener

After blending it all together, we had a refreshing, low cal, summery drink! Perfect!

Since we were being all fancy schmancy, I cut up a kiwi and put a slice on each of our glasses. Presentation is everything! (Please ignore the ugly plug in the back of the picture haha)

I’m off to hang out with my parents – we got the movie State of Play for five bucks at the store today, so I think we’re gonna pop that sucker in! Hope everyone had as good of a Monday as I did! Smile
