Ingredients


Directions

1. Raise the oven rack to the highest level, then
preheat oven to 400 F. If using a pizza stone,
place it in the oven to preheat.

2. Place the dough on a pizza screen or preheated
stone, spread with the pesto, then scatter the
tomatoes and cheese across the top.

3. Bake until the dough is nicely browned and
crispy, 18 to 20 minutes.

Note: Pizza pans vary in size. We base our recipes
on a 16-inch pan with eight slices per pie.

    This is a really satisfying pizza - I ate only two slices and felt full. Usually I eat the whole pizza and it doesn't feel enough. I substituted the cheese with non-dairy alternative and added one tablespoon tomato sauce. - 2/3/12

    I was surprised how much I liked the crust! I'd never made pizza dough with quinoa and flaxseeds. I love goat cheese, so using it as a topping for a pizza was a first for me, too! It was absoutely delicious! - 9/7/12

  • I tweaked this recipe except for the crust. To the toppings I added mushrooms, chopped garlic and turkey pepperoni. I topped with 1 cup shredded mozzarella and 1 T. parmesan. It was tasty but I found the crust pretty thick & hard. But it definitely was a filling meal and so much healthier. - 5/31/14

  • I used arugula instead of spinach for the pesto puree. Also used a regular tomato chopped instead of the cherry tomatoes and feta instead of goat. It was a very nice. - 6/29/13

  • AMAZING!! Tastes like the Margherita pizzas we used to get from the store but BETTER! Fresh, not watery and good for you. 1st time making my own pesto & it was actually very easy! I was short on time didn't have igred. to make dough. Used Boboli 100% Wh Wheat Crust instead and actually lowered cals! - 5/28/13

    This is a labor-intensive recipe, but a healthy and satisfying one. A compromise is to use frozen bread dough, frozen chopped spinach mixed with pesto. One slice of a 16" pizza for 220 calories may not be very filling, though. Pizza... what's not to love? - 9/7/12

  • The dough was VERY good. I added a 1/2 cup white wheat flour, 1 cup reg. flour + the 1/2 cup ground quinoa. I used Vermont maple syrup instead of honey. The texture was excellent + crust thin and crispy. The pesto is a keeper, I added 2 cloves of garlic + added a handful of parmesan cheese. - 1/31/12
