Who ya gonna call...

The Pizza Man?  Oh, I think not!

Tonight, we decided to bust out our "Pizza" cookbook.  As the name suggests, a cookbook of only pizza recipes.  We opted for the Genoa Pesto pizza.

Super simple recipe, takes almost no time to put together.  If you like salami and you like basil pesto you should really give this one a try.

Genoa Pesto Pizza
1 home-made or store bought pizza crust (I bought mine)
Pesto  (either store bought or home-made, mine was home-made, see recipe below)
 Shredded Mozzarella cheese
Genoa salami sliced thin

Just slather the pizza crust with pesto, sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top, then add salami slices.  Since my pizza crust was store-bought, it only needed to brown up in the over.  425 degrees for 15 minutes.  It came out looking all gooey and browned on the edges (as you can see!)

Pesto recipe
handful of fresh basil leaves
about a 1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
olive oil

In a food processor combine basil (leaves only, no stems), garlic, pine nuts, and cheese.
Add a light drizzle of olive oil and pulse to combine.  Slowly add remaining olive oil until the desired consistency is reached.
That's it!

And, if you make more or have extra, fill an icecube tray with the leftovers and freeze.  Then you are left with little pesto cubes that can be transferred to a ziploc baggie and saved for later :)

Had a big meeting for work last night and we had to clean up when it ended.
Instead of making one lady sweep the whole room, I chipped in to help.
Found this SA-WEEEEET Ghost Buster-esque vacuum in a janitor closet.
Yep, never afraid of a dirty job :)
