Pesto Pizza With Cream Cheese

I love pizza, yes I do! I love pizza, how about you? I am not overly picky about where my pizza comes from. I just love it.

Way back in 2011 I went with some friends to Big Pie In The Sky Pizzeria in Kennesaw, Georgia. You might have actually heard of it if you watch the show "Man Verses Food." They have a HUGE pizza called the Carnivore. It weighs like a 11 pounds and if you and a friend eat it in under an hour it's free. However, if you do eat that pizza, I recommend you get your stomach pumped because you just consumed 5.5 pounds of pizza. Gross.

At any rate, back to my story, Beardface and I went to eat with our friends Tricia and Sarah. We had the most delicious pizza ever. It was made with pesto, a blend of Italian cheese and topped with creamed cheese.

I've been hankering for that pizza. But alas, Kennesaw is now an eight hour drive away.

So what's a girl to do? Make it herself!

What you'll need:

A pizza crust, click here my recipe

About a cup of pesto sauce. If you're feeling particularly ambitious you can make your own. But if you're like me you can just buy the Classico brand at Publix and call it a day.

1 - 2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese

Eight tablespoons cream cheese (I recommend creamy goat cheese if you can find it)

Spread out your crust in a pan. I sprinkled mine with parmesean cheese, minced onions and basil.


Bake at 350 for about eight minutes.


Add your pesto.


Sprinkle with cheese, yo.


Dollop with cream cheese.


Pop in the oven and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Then fall in love with the greatest pizza ever.
