When Marty and Darrold make pizza for their friends and family, they make at least one pesto pizza and it is always a crowd pleaser. Now you can make his pesto pizza in your own kitchen!
4 oz (94 g) Basil Pesto
1-2 Tbsp Water
Walnuts crushed into small pieces (to taste)
Parmigiano Reggiano or Mozzarella (to taste)
To make one 12” pizza you need about 4 ounces of Pesto.
Combine 4 ounces (113g) of Pesto with a little water and mix it in so that the mixture is thin enough to spread on a pizza crust. One or two tablespoons of added water should be enough.
The mixture will spread on the crust more easily if it has warmed up a bit so I like to soften the oil by leaving it sitting out on the counter for a couple of hours before using.
Spread on your crust almost but not quite to the edge. Add the crushed *walnuts, sprinkle with some Parmesan or Mozzarella, or some of each.
