I actually think I have eaten the pizza for 75% of my lunches since discovering it..YUM!
But, how did I get to this here? Read on for instructions:
I first made the pesto I mentioned above. Here is a picture of my fresh basil growing in garden pots on my deck.
which is as follows:
3 cups fresh basil leaves
2-3 cloves garlic
About 1/4 cup quality parmesan cheese, grated
Splash of fresh lemon juice
About 1/2 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. In a food processor or blender, chop up the garlic until it is minced.
2. Add in the basil and cheese (I bought my cheese at Aldi) and start to blend. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while the machine is running. Blend until smooth.
3. Squeeze in a little lemon juice and add salt and pepper to taste.
When you are done with the pesto recipe you have this to store in the fridge, or to make your pizza!
You will need:
1 flour tortilla (per pizza)
1 T. pesto
sprinkle of mozzarella cheese
dash of salt
1-2 T. Olive oil.
First heat the olive oil on medium high in your skillet and fry the tortilla (you cold skip this step if you are trying to make a healthier version, you would just brown the tortilla on both sides in a non-stick skillet) but, trust me, it is worth the calories to do it the original way. Fry both sides till slightly browned and kinda crunchy.
Your tastebuds with thank me!!!
