Ingredients

  • 1 pizza crust
  • 6 tablespoons prepared pesto sauce
  • 3 Roma tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh spinach

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread the pesto on the pizza dough, leaving about an inch around the outside edge for the crust.
  3. Spread or crumble the goat cheese across the pizza.  Arrange the tomato slices over the goat cheese.  Sprinkle as evenly as possible with the garlic.
  4. Place the pizza into the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until the crust edges are golden.  After taking the pizza out of the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes so that the cheese has time to set. After a couple minutes, cover the pizza with a few handfuls of spinach or arugula.
