You should know by now that pizza and I are involved in an intense love affair.
After picking up some basil sausage at Trader Joes, I decided to make a pesto-based pizza, topped with said sausage. This pizza pretty much came to me as I picked up ingredients at Trader Joes recently and the combo worked out fantastically.
The husband can be kind of picky, so I was worried about him liking this pizza, but he loved it. He scarfed down two big pieces for dinner, ate a bit more for a midnight snack, and then polished off the rest for lunch the next day! I'd say that's a pretty big endorsement right there.
I love this pizza and can't wait to make it again. It might be good with some red onion bits on it as well, but that's up to you to decide. I plan to keep the recipe just as it is.
