1 unbaked pizza crust
6 tablespoons prepared pesto sauce (see below)
3 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 (5-6 ounce) package seasoned goat cheese
2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup fresh arugula
1 teaspoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Dab pesto onto the center of the pizza base, and spread toward the outer edges. Cut the goat cheese into thin coins, and spread or crumble across the pizza. Arrange tomato slices over goat cheese. Sprinkle with garlic. Brush the crust edges lightly with olive oil.
3. Place pizza directly on preheated pizza stone. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the crust edges are golden.
4. After taking pizza out of the oven, allow to cool for a few minutes so that the cheese has time to set. After a couple of minutes, cover the pizza with a few handfuls of arugula.
1 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend together.
