the rare treat–gluten free pizza

my pesto vegetable extravaganza pizza

Okay, so this is my favoritest pizza ever and it really has to do with the delicious pesto sauce. A friend of mine introduced it to me last year and I have loved it since.

Prado’s Pesto
2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
5 garlic cloves, chopped and lightly toasted
small package of basil (a good handful)
salt and pepper to taste

You can use a food processor or one of those little Handy Chopper things to blend it all up, then refrigerate it for a day. This helps the flavors really blend together and make it oh-so-yummy.

I add lots of stuff to my pizza (unlike the daughter who goes with just cheese–booooring), and to this one I added:

  • sauteed onions
  • spinach leaves
  • fried tofu
  • yellow bell pepper
  • zucchini
  • roasted red peppers
  • kalamata olives
  • black olives
  • feta cheese
  • mozzarella cheese

I forgot the artichoke hearts in the fridge. Grr. Next time!
