Pesto Pizza

March 16, 2007 at 9:32 pm 12 comments

This was the first meal I made in the kitchen in our new apartment. However…the oven was pretty much worthless and it took about an hour to melt the cheese! They are replacing our oven…yay! It was still delicious.

I started with garlic naan and topped it with pesto. Then I added some sliced roma tomatoes, artichokes, feta and romano cheeses and topped it all off with an Italian blend of cheeses and melted it all up in the oven. Yum. Yum. Yum. It was so fast and easy. Everyone had their own personal pizza and we devoured them.

    I always try to make the dough for our pizza, which is usually tolerable, but not great. If only our pokey doke grocery store would carry naan! Sounds like a memorable first meal! Glad you’re getting a new range– it just wouldn’t do to have a bad oven!

    I never make my own pizza dough. I either use store-bought (Rustic Crust) or I buy from a local Italian food store.

    Pesto pizza is good. I’ve been doing tomato sauce–either tomato paste with various italian seasonings sprinkled on top, or part of a can of Muir Glen Pizza Sauce. it’s really not bad!

    My favorite pizza lately involves cooking a package of frozen spinach and cutting pitted kalamata olives in half or quarters. I put tomato sauce on the crust, then the spinach and olives, and cheese on top. I’ve used various kinds of cheese, but mostly mozzarella. The olives and sauce have a lot of flavor, so I don’t mind if the cheese is a little bland.

    Glad you are getting a new oven! My oven in Prague was pretty awful, so I did almost all my cooking on the stovetop.

    We missed you at the Natural Living Expo!

    I was also wondering if your naan was store bought or your recipe? And how did you make your pesto?

    I love reading about all the yummy foods you create!

    Sara, I posted a chick pea recipe on a different blog and got a reply from Jeena, who has a vegetarian blog here:

    The recipes look yummy.

    I think I mostly admire how versatile your little girl’s tastes are… I assume she eats all these things you make?

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
