Spinach pesto pizza with fresh mozzarella


Spinach pesto pizza with fresh mozzarella -so delicious and only 4 ingredients to make! I am completely dying over this pizza. It is so easy to make and perfect for a quick lunch.

A few weeks back I was at Costco with my kids and naturally they seek out all the samples. I think that’s the only reason they love going to Costco with me. Ha! Anyways… there was a sample with this naan bread, pesto and melted cheese. It was SO good. I snatched up all the ingredients so I could make it at home. I also decided to add some fresh spinach… you know…to make it somewhat healthy and balance out all that amazing cheese. ;)

Seriously… look at ALL that cheese! I love using sliced mozzarella for these pizzas because the cheese seems to melt just perfectly over the entire pizza.

    What is the nutritional value of this pizza?

    • Jamielyn posted on September 27, 2014 at 1:39 pm (#

      Hi Quinn! I haven’t estimated the calories and nutritional value, but there are a lot of calorie counters online if you search on google. :)

    oh my god I am eating this right now and it’s amazing. I used tortillas instead and added fresh tomato on top :) 450 for 6 mins.

    Love this recipe. I will make it tonight.

    This was a quick and easy recipe. I travel a lot in my career so when I come home from trips I want something quick and easy to make because I’m usually too exhausted to make something that requires a lot of time. This was perfect and healthy!

    Ugh, sorry for previous comment.  My dog had allergies and demanded to bee scratched.  I made this tonight with pizza dough (baked at 400 for 20min) and added tomato per one of the other comments.  It was delicious. For those of you that need to win your husband over add tomatoes and he will tell you it’s repeat worthy.  So app to have a good for you, delicious pizza recipe!

    This. Was. Delicious!! So easy to make, and tasted even better than I thought. Also, I used garlic Naan bread instead of original. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    This looks delicious! Do you think it could be made the night before and re-heated for lunch? Sounds like an easy lunch

    • I Heart Naptime posted on August 10, 2016 at 7:29 am (#

      It is so easy! It’s best reheated in a toaster oven, otherwise I like it at room temperature. :)

    Sounds yummy. I’ll be making one like this for Hubby, but will be swapping Oopsie bread or other low carb crust for me!
