Ingredients for two 8-inch pesto pizzas
two 8-inch pizza crusts
1/2 zucchini or yellow squash
1 medium tomato
two slices of onion
pesto (2 tablespoons)
kosher salt and pepper (to taste)
extra virgin olive oil (1-2 tablespoons)
Directions to make pesto pizza
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
In a medium saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add vegetables, salt/pepper and saute 2-3 minutes to slightly cook.
Place one tablespoon of pesto on each pizza round. Pinch off pieces of mozzarella and place onto pizza crust. Add veggies, but not the basil (will burn).
Bake for 7 minutes. Turn oven to boil, and bake 1-2 additional minutes, leaving oven door slightly open.
Once out of the oven tear pieces of basil and scatter on top. Optional: top with freshly grated parmigiano- reggiano.
