Tomato pesto Pizza

by - 8:32 PM

One day I was reading Ree's recipe for Tomato Basil Pesto pizza, it looked so good I just had to try it.
If you haven't been to her website you'll want to:
 Let's make Pizza!
Slice mozzarella and tomatoes.
Spread a layer of pesto on the pizza dough. Next a layer of mozzarella. arrange the tomato slices.
Top with remaining mozzarella. If you have a very little bit of fresh basil sprinkle it on the top. Then top with Parmesan.
 Let cool a bit before serving.
Don't ask me how I know :)

Preparation Instructions

Smear the pesto over half of the pizza dough and sprinkle some kosher salt over it.
Slice the mozzarella thin enough to cover the pizza thoroughly. Next, lay thin slices of Roma tomatoes over the mozzarella.
Wash and dry the basil leaves and lay or mince them in a layer on top.
Go ahead top with more mozzarella if there’s any left.
