Reviews for Three-Cheese Pesto Pizza
"My husband and I really liked this but for some reason, our pizza got soggy. Maybe it was the pan we used or something, not really sure. It was a pre-made Boboli's pizza crust. Next time I might bake it a bit beforehand to get it more crisp. I'd also like to mention that the ingredients stack up high on this pizza! It's thick! But we loved it. I didn't think it was dry or anything, so the amount of pesto seemed good. The only other thing I did differently was use regular yellow onion, not red (we aren't fans of red). I'd make this again, but with a few minor tweaks."
"I used home made pesto with fresh basil from my garden. Left off the feta and olives. This was easy and delicious!"
"We have been using this recipe for years. It is wonderful!"
"This was fantastic! The blend of cheeses with the pesto gave it a wonderful flavor. Will make again."
"Love this with homegrown tomatoes and pesto!"
"This is WONDERFUL! A definite "keeper". The ONLY things I did differently was to use a 7 oz. jar of pesto ( a little bit more that 1/2 c.) and I used tomato/basil feta cheese because that's what I had on-hand. Thank you for sharing such a nice change-of-pace recipe. :-)))"
"I make this all the time. I don't like olives so I leave them off, but this is DELICIOUS and a FAVORITE at my house! And for entertaining!"
"I'm going to try it without the pesto, onions, and red peppers. I cannot eat those things, but it would be great with just the olives, tomatoes, and cheeses. I love to make pizza, and this would make great single pizzas for people like me, who only need to cook for one. Even for someone who cooks for only two."
"I'm going to try this but with only half of the feta and half of parm. I'm also going to do it on grill. I live in az and i find that the grill works best instead of heating the house up. Get back to you later......."
