Spring Pea Pesto Pizza
Servings: 1 Large Pizza
For the Pesto:
1 cup frozen peas, thawed (or fresh ones, blanched)
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
zest of ½ lemon
juice from ½ lemon
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
For the Pizza:
1 pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza dough)
½ cup frozen peas, thawed (or fresh, blanched)
2 cups GO VEGGIE Mozzarella shreds
thinly sliced radishes, for topping
lemon zest, for topping
To make the pesto:
Pulse together the peas, basil, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt, until well combined.
To make the pizza:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Spread out pizza dough on a well floured surface.
Spread the pea pesto over the dough, leaving a ½" crust.
Sprinkle with peas, then top with shredded cheese.
Place pizza on a floured pizza stone or onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
Slice, top with sliced radishes and lemon zest, and enjoy!
