Pizzas are one of the easiest food to make in the kitchen, well only when you are not making the crust from scratch that is. Since the bulk of the work is taken away with my instant pizza base cheat, I get to experiment with different kinds of pizza sauce and toppings. One of my favourite home creations is a pesto pizza, where freshly made pesto is used as the pizza sauce instead of the usual tomato-based sauce.

I topped my pesto pizza with grilled eggplants, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, pine nuts and basil. The result is a yummy vegetarian pesto pizza, definitely a welcome and refreshing change from the usual tomato sauce pizza.
