Margherita Pesto Pizza

It's the New Year and I know a lot of you are wanting to eat healthier (me included!) but still love regular comfort foods like pizza. We love pizza around here and enjoy it at least once a week. If you check out my blog, I have tons of pizza recipes because all 5 of us are huge fans of all things pizza! I have amazing news. You can enjoy your pizza AND eat healthier. This Margherita Pesto Pizza is made with a cauliflower crust pizza that you're going to love.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

When we tried Milton's Cauliflower Crust Pizza for the first time last year, we were shocked at just how delicious it was. The crust gets perfectly crispy and you would never know that you're eating a cauliflower crust! The kids all loved it which is a huge win.

This recipe features the delicious Milton's Craft Bakers Margherita Four Cheese Pizza with roma tomatoes and basil. The 4 cheeses add a lot of flavor and are high-quality Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano and Parmesan cheese. It is delicious as is but is even better with this homemade fresh pesto sauce!

Milton's Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Milton's is a frozen pizza that goes from your freeze to table in only 15 minutes. It doesn't taste like your average frozen pizza and is deliciously crispy. Milton's Pizzas are gluten-free so they can be enjoyed by everyone. My kid's top choice is the pepperoni one. The crust is perfectly crispy and definitely not soggy like some cauliflower crusts can be. I recommend having a Milton’s Pizza in your freezer for those nights when you’re in a pinch and want dinner quickly.

Margherita Pizza with Pesto

Homemade Pesto

Homemade pesto is so delicious and actually really easy to make. With just 6-ingredients, it comes together in no time. Just blend together basil leaves, olive oil, parmesan cheese, pine nuts (or many other nuts will work like pistachios, walnuts, almonds), garlic and salt. It stores well in the fridge or freezer if you want to make a large batch!

This pizza makes an awesome entree or even an appetizer. I would serve it for the upcoming Big Game as an appetizer! Or even as a snack when you're extra hungry. Trust me, you're going to want to try this pizza- it's delicious.
