Spinach Pesto Pizza

Spinach pesto pizza with fresh mozzarella – Only 4 ingredients and 10 minutes to make! Flavorful, delicious and full of melted cheese!

This recipe is one of my favorite easy lunch ideas. It’s super quick, takes minimal ingredients and tastes so amazing. Some of my other top simple lunches are a grilled caprese sandwich, chicken caesar wrap, egg salad sandwich or a big chopped salad.

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 of pesto pizza made with this naan bread, pesto and melted cheese. It was SO good. I snatched up all of 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 because the cheese seems to melt just perfectly over the entire thing. I am completely dying over this pizza. It is so easy to make and perfect for a quick lunch!
