    That's the most unappetising pizza I've ever seen or eaten. Bad, very bad. - 9/26/14

  • This actually looks good to me but the recipe directions are confusing. - 10/17/14

  • Something's not quite right about the recipe. I believe there's an extra step listed for spreading the pesto and baking for 10 minutes. The total time for baking is supposed to be 20 minutes, so 10 minutes for the pizza dough and 10 minutes with pesto and spinach mixed together. - 9/27/14

  • I make a pesto pizza using pesto as the sauce, oven dried tomatoes (Chef Meg's recipe), fresh chopped basil, grilled, diced chicken breast, feta cheese and low fat mozzarella. Yum! - 9/26/14

    Unfortunately, the picture does not look very appetizing. I would rather put my homemade red sauce with basil on the pizza and some crumbled chicken sausage for a topping with diced red onions and Italian spices. - 9/26/14

  • I love using pesto sauce on pizza, I make my own, usually. Topped with chopped proscuitto, toasted pine nuts and a sprinkling of feta cheese makes for a fabulous treat. - 9/26/14
