Pesto-Chèvre PizzaINGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan
  • ½ pound half white, half wheat pizza dough
  • 1½ ounces thinly sliced fresh mozzarella
  • 1 ounce crumbled fresh goat cheese


Preheat the oven to 500°F.

In a small food processor, blend together the basil, garlic, nuts, oil, and Parmesan until smooth.

Roll out the dough to a 7-inch round.  Top with pesto sauce, leaving a small border for the crust.  Top with the mozzarella, and then the goat cheese.  Place the pizza on a cookie sheet, and bake until puffed and golden—10 to 13 minutes.  It should be thick and bubbling.  Slice and serve.
