  • Pesto Time and Stuffed Crust!

    We wanted to try something new this past weekend so we made fresh basil pesto. If you have never made it, it's a 5-minute no-brainer with a food processor (a blender will work too!).

    We used a "blister pack" of fresh basil from grocery store (we had fresh basil in the backyard until last week's freeze).

    If you want to give it a whirl, Google "Basil Pesto". Plenty of recipes. It's essentially a puree of basil, garlic, grated parmesan, pine nuts and olive oil. What's not to like?!

    The pictured pizza is mozz, onion and pesto. MMMMM-Good!

    My 11 daughter wanted stuff-crust pizza. I guess we've made too many trips to Pizza Hut . I took fresh mozzarella and cut it into long, thing strips that we rolled inside the outer crust before adding the toppings. It worked out really well (and WAY better than Pizza Hut).

    The tomatoe sauce looks great. What did you use for it? Also was the cheese home made?

      Brifro,

      The sauce is a very exclusive item in the Italian section of our grocery. It's called "Ragu Olive Oil & Garlic Pasta Sauce"

      Make my own cheese? I'm a city boy! We usually keep a 10 lb bag of grated Mozzarella from Sam's Club in the fridge for the kid's pizzas.
