“This is a delicious pizza that's a combination of a pesto pizza and antipasto salad!!! Created by the Pantry Raiding Divas for the Zaar World Tour II! NOTE: If you'd rather use fresh red bell peppers, slice 1/2 red bell pepper into rings and saute with the mushrooms. NOTE: Purchased pesto may be used, if desired.”
