Serving Size: Serves 4 Ingredients
  • 28 oz Pizza Dough (Store bought or homemade)
  • 3/4 Ounce Basil Leaves
  • 2/3 Cup Almonds (roasted and salted)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 5 T Olive Oil
  • 1/3 Pound Taleggio Cheese (cut into little pieces)
  • 2 1/2 Cups Mozzarella (shredded)
  • 1/2 Cup Pecorino Romano (shredded)

  • In a food processor fitted with a blade, add your basil, almonds, garlic and pepper. While the food processor is running, pour in your oil slowly until the mixture is fine and pureed. Taste and season with salt.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and spray two large baking sheets with cooking spray. Stretch out your pizza dough into two equal sized pizzas (one per baking sheet).
  • Top each pizza with your basil pesto, taleggio, mozzarella, and pecorino romano (divide up each element equally on each pizza). Sprinkle some Italian Seasoning on top of each pizza.
