Pesto Tomato Pizza

Here is another recipe where the walnut pesto I made a couple of days ago is used. Adding pesto to pizza makes it taste very fresh and light. Top it with light mozzarella and some tomato slices. Try and cover all the pesto with cheese as it will darken in the exposed areas in the oven. 

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons pesto
1/3 cup light mozzarella shredded
1 pizza base (half portion from this recipe)
1 medium tomato sliced

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Take the pizza dough from its resting place and knead it again for a couple of minutes till it has deflated and is nice and stretchy. Make a round base by pressing the dough outward. Stretch to make a thin round base. Place the pesto on the base. I spread it almost to the edge. Next place the tomatoes on top. Spread the shredded mozzarella. Bake for about 20 minutes till the cheese has melted and the edges are crispy. Enjoy!
