“This Mediterranean-style pizza is a wonderful change to everyday pizza. It's a great summertime dish to make when basil and tomatoes are in season. Althought you can use prepared pesto, I normally make my own which has quite a hint of lemon in it. Do not substitute dried basil - it just won't work. This would also make a great appetizer if sliced in very thin wedges.”
