Well we are certainly on a garden kick now that ours is yielding all sorts of goodies. We even have a banana pepper about ready to be picked! I had some leftover cherry tomatoes to use up and my favorite way to eat cherry tomatoes is roasted, with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Even better is when they are on a salad or pizza. Mmmm pizza, my favorite food. So I decided to get creative! I made pesto using basil and parsley from our garden, used that as the sauce on our pizza and then topped it with cheese, chicken, and roasted tomatoes! DELICIOUS! I really don’t have a recipe but here’s how I threw it all together.
pillsbury thin crust pizza + mozzarella cheese + leftover grilled chicken
+ pesto: basil, parsley, EVOO, salt, pepper, parm, toasted pine nuts all mixed together in the food processor
+ roasted cherry tomatoes: drizzled with EVOO, salt and pepper, roasted at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
= ONE DELICIOUS PIZZA!
