If you love pesto and love pizza and love eating healthy… you will love this quick and yummy pesto pizza!

I made fresh pesto yesterday using Alissa Segersten’s recipe. You must try her pesto as well as other nutritious recipes. The pesto is dairy-free, nut-free and grain-free. Check out Alissa’s pesto recipe here.

I used the pesto with cucumber noodles for dinner last night as per Alissa’s recipe and also made broccoli with a dairy-free creamy sauce (that recipe next time). My dinner was ready in 20 minutes!!!

I already had pesto ready in my fridge… so back to Pesto Pizza 🙂

I used black chick pea flour tortilla as pizza crust. Actually I made it more in Indian style chapati like this. Here is my Healthy Pizza Crust recipe.
