Jalapeno and Pecan Pesto PizzaOct 16, 2018Posted by guestchefPrint
Thanks to Kenneth Kingswell of Strega Nonas Oven mobile catering in Gainesville, FL for sending in this recipe!
This is a great pesto recipe for people who are lactose intolerant or are vegan. There is no dairy in this recipe whatsoever. It’s a great addition to bruschetta, pizza, eggs, fish, and chicken. Give it a try! I’ve also made this with almonds & pistachios with great results as well.
To transform this recipe into a base sauce for a great pizza or flatbread, simply prepare your dough, add a light layer of pesto sauce, and top it with complimentary items. The pictured pizza adds cheese and sliced red onions for a vegetarian treat. Pre-cooked chicken is also a good addition. Remember that the sauce may have real kick to it, so balance that spice with milder flavors on top for a nice balance that allows you to taste the various levels and leave the nuttiness and rich oil flavor of the pesto as the star of the show!
