Easy Pesto Pizza

This pesto pizza has only a handful of toppings, but don't underestimate the tastiness!

I don't usually purchase store bought pizza crust. I much prefer to make a batch of my favorite pizza dough and freeze half. Then it's just a matter of thawing the crust during the day in preparation for dinner. I love this easy pesto pizza because it truly is easy. And there's pesto. And then more basil. This speaks to me on so many levels. The original recipe calls for topping the pizza with just mozzarella and then baking, then adding the remaining toppings after baking. I prefer the toppings get melted into the cheese, so I baked it all :)
