Heirloom Tomato & Pesto Pizza

Heirloom Tomato & Pesto Pizza

I love pesto but find it hard to find good vegan versions when eating out. I recently saw an awesome looking pesto pizza on a local pizzeria menu, but their pesto was loaded with Parmesan cheese. I decided I should take matters into my own kitchen. I’ve combined two of my favorite recipes here to make a vegan pizza good enough to grace the menu of any upscale pizzeria in town.

This recipe makes two good-sized pizzas with fairly thin crusts, but feel free to make one large with a thick crust if that’s what you prefer. For the cheese, I have used Teese Mozzarella style Vegan Cheese quite a bit lately and have grown to love it. They just started carrying it at our local Whole Foods; if you can find it, get it. I promise you’ll love it too!

1 batch Savory Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1 batch Primo Pesto
1-2 heirloom tomatoes
1 package Teese mozzarella style Vegan Cheese

Prepare the pizza dough and pesto according to their recipes.

Top prepared and pre-baked pizza crust with pesto, sliced tomatoes, and cheese.

Bake in 450° oven for 5-10 minutes.
