    The expression has NOTHING to do with football. The length of the cartridge belt for the machine guns on a SPITFIRE fighter plane was 27 feet long and if the pilot emptied it on an opponent he was said to have given him the whole nine yards. - 9/26/16

    Have some cilantro to use up. Saw a lovely recipe for cilantro pesto. Giving it a try for a more "Mexican" flavored version & used sharp cheddar for the cheese with a sprinkle of garlic powder and cumin powder in the base before adding cheese. - 9/26/19

    I don't care for pesto, either, but can replace it with a little shredded kale, or some other herbs without the pine nuts. I can't wait to try this! :-) - 9/26/19

    This came out pretty good. Had to use cream sauce instead of Pesto as Hubby can't eat the Pesto. I used Fresh spinach out of the garden. I didn't want to change it but, Hubby can't handle Pesto or the Red sauce either. - 9/26/18

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No


  • 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

    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
