Three-Cheese Pesto Pizza

 Three-Cheese Pesto Pizza
We love the bold flavor of this pizza that's a bit different from the traditional. The pesto, cheese and olive topping makes a delicious statement. Serve it as a main dish...or as a fun appetizer cut in smaller pieces. -- Pat Stevens, Granbury, Texas
