Greens. Pesto. Cheese. Pizza. Delicious.
This pizza is so yummy and packed with greens so you don’t feel guilty about eating pizza! I bought this pizza dough at Whole Foods, so I didn’t make the dough myself. However, this is whole wheat and the crust is extremely thin, so it’s not too heavy. This is simple to make – all you do is make the pesto using Organic Girl greens or any greens you like – spinach or kale would be great too. Spread a layer of the pesto over the dough and top it with a little grass-fed organic mozzarella, or any cheese you desire. Vegan cheese would also be great on this.
