An easy (and healthy) way to get that pizza craving in is making them using some type of whole grain bread, sauce, cheese and toppings that you'd likely have in your kitchen. Especially nutrient packed veggies!
Which is where these yummy things come in.
I started making my own pesto about a year ago and have added it to just about everything. In the past, I have made these with English muffins but I found that I couldn't fit too many veggies on them. So I decided to get some sandwich thins as they have a little more surface area.
Pesto is traditionally made with basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, and pine nuts.
Although this method is delicious on it's own, I have found that pine nuts can be kind of expensive! I've seen recipes that incorporate other herbs and using lemon juice, instead of adding the pine nuts, which is where I got the inspiration for compiling this blend.
These pizzas are especially fantastic because the vegetables become roasted in the oven, which is one of my favorite ways to serve veggies.
Let's get cooking!
