PW Homemade Pizza Crust

Pesto Tomato Pizza

I made Ree's pizza crust tonight. um...I am in love. The whole cookbook is worth this pizza crust... But you can find the crust recipe on her blog here in her favorite pizza post.

I made my own mild pesto sauce in the blender and added grated mozzarella, cheddar and monterey Jack cheeses thin sliced Roma tomatoes and grated garlic.

Madley asked me to marry him again right in the middle of a bite. "Mill oooh garry be?"

"I solemnly swear that this crust recipe will be used once a week in this house for as long as I live."

I also had yummy, ice cold Trader Joe's Natural Root Beer for him and that sealed the deal.

Lindy's Easy Peasy Mild Garlic Pesto

2 Cups fresh spinach leaves
1 Cup fresh basil leaves
1 large, peeled clove garlic, grated or chopped
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp salt or to taste

To a blender or food processor, add garlic, spinach and basil leaves. On a low setting, drizzle the olive oil in slowly. Add salt and blend on medium high for a minute or until blended well. You can always add more olive oil if needed.

Spread over pizza crust or add to spaghetti sauce.


  1. It looks delicious! When I make pizza, sometimes I only use extra virgin olive oil, dried oregano and crushed red pepper for a topping. This is one of the toppings my mother used when she made homemade pizza.

  2. Sounds yummy! I'll try that sometime...thanks Patricia :)
