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.
