All good things Pizza

This pizza is one of  my favorite go-to meals for a crowd, even though I don’t actually make it very often, the thought of making it goes through my mind pretty much everytime my friends and I are in lack of a plan. The array of flavors is kind of mind-blowingly exciting, and its super easy to put together once you have a crust (make your own (I will post a recipe for that later) or buy a whole wheat organic one from the store). Its also good for you! Since you’re making all the toppings from scratch, you can control the ammount of fat and salt according to your needs, and stay away from all that creepy stuff that comes with pre-packaged things. Gorgonzola is super rich in calcium and protein (and SUPER tasty, I could seriously eat just this for dinner on lazy nights.. but that’s not very balanced) and the fresh herbs and olive oil you use to make the pesto (for this pizza I use basil, but you can make pesto out of pretty much whatever you want!) make an awesome combo of nutrients and healthy fats that will make your tummy happy.
So make this, and enjoy every delicious bite right away. At home, whenever there are left overs (RARE), I like to wrap each slice separately and freeze it. It tastes just as good thawed and reheated in a toaster oven.

You will need:

  • 1 thin whole wheat pre-made crust. Make it yourself (preferably!) or buy it made.
  • 1/2-3/4 of a cup of pesto
  • 1 package of gorgonzola
  • 1 diced tomato, if you would like to peel it, boil it and take the skin off and then cut it into strips
  • 1/2 a cup of diced mushrooms
  • pepper to taste
  1. Pre heat the oven to about 375 F
  2. Spread all the ingredients over the crust evenly (or unevenly): pesto sauce – gorgonzola – tomatoes – mushrooms
  3. Sprinkle with pepper
  4. Bake on a baking sheet or pizza dish for about 20-25 min at 375 F
  5. Let it cool a little before slicing and serving
  6. Stuff into your belly

Enjoy!
