Greek Pesto Pizza

This delicious pizza is jam-packed with veggies!  It is one of my family's favorites for sure!  There are so many textures and flavors combined to make this pizza a real delight for the whole family.  The quality of the pesto is so important to this dish, so I truly hope you make your own.  There are far more veggies than cheese, so it is a healthier option for a pizza.  (Good since I LOVE pizza!)  This is another recipe that allows you to prep the ingredients ahead of time, so your dinner-time rush is incredibly fast and simple.  I hope you give this pizza a try!

Your favorite pizza crust
1/2-3/4 C pesto
1/2 small cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 ripe tomato, seeded and chopped
1/2 large green bell pepper, chopped
2 oz black olives, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
6 oz canned artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
3-4 oz crumbled feta cheese

  1. Heat the oven to 475 with the pizza stone already inside.
  2. Spread the pesto evenly on the pizza crust.
  3. Top with the vegetables and cheese.
  4. Bake directly on the pizza stone for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is lightly browned.

  3. I don't think I have ever made anything with pesto for my husband... Will have to try this pizza the next time we have pizza night... I love pizza but my husband only eats it because he knows how much I like it... and would rather eat pizza when it is homemade...

    1. I agree! I love homemade pizza! If you try this one, let me know how you like it!
