Pesto Pizza with Feta & Tomatoes


This right here makes me very happy I discovered homemade pizza.  I looked in the fridge and saw a few leftovers here and a few leftovers there.... and voila, the creation of this pizza.  I didn't buy a darn thing.  I had half a block of feta, half a bag of grape tomatoes, some leftover toasted pine nuts and some pesto in the freezer.  Sadly, I had no crust in the freezer or this would have been a cinch.  But after making up a batch, the pizza only took about 10 minutes.  So enough about me, let's talk about you... go look in that fridge of yours... come on, there is got to be something you could throw on a pizza.

From my little kitchen to yours... Enjoy.

Pesto Pizza with Feta & Tomatoes
Recipe Notes
As I mentioned before, this was all leftovers and I just took stuff out of the fridge and started throwing it on.  I tried to estimate about how much of each ingredient I used, but you will be able to judge that based on what kind of pizza you like... whether you like a lot of cheese or a little, just a bite of tomato or a ton... you get the point.
1 recipe of basic pizza dough, or store bought
3/4 cup pesto
3/4 cup feta
3/4 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half longways
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted

  1. this looks delicious. I made pizza last night too for my blog but with yellow tomatoes and goat cheese. your pizza looks great - I will have to try this :)

  2. Omgosh your homemade pizza looks like heaven with tomatoes!!

  3. This looks so so good! Did you use homemade pesto or store bought? If you used store bought, can you suggest a good brand? I still haven't found a great store bought pesto for when I just don't have to make it!

  4. Yum... I have actually made something very similar but I used mozzarella cheese instead. I bet the feta gives a good tangy flavor... I will try this for sure and let you know how it goes!

  5. Wow that looks simply out of this world, incredible pizza...

  6. Yes, I confess I did use store bought pesto this go around. My favorite is the one Costco sells. And it is the best price I have found for fresh pesto.
