Pesto Pecan Pizza For One or Two

Pecan Pesto Pizza for One

1 Greek style pita round (not the pocket type) – I used Kangaroo brand
2-3 teaspoons pesto sauce (Whole Foods 360 is very good)
1/3 cup shredded “Four Cheese Italian Blend” (mozzarella, provolone, Swiss, Parm)
2 tablespoons whole pecans

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Place pecans on a paper towel and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes to pre-toast. You can do this in the oven, but that would be a waste of energy since you are only using 2 tablespoons. You could probably skip the pre micro-toasting, but I do it anyway to ensure the pecans are toasted enough.

3. Spread pesto over top of pita. Sprinkle cheese over pesto. Chop the pecans into pieces and spread over top.

4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until hot and bubbly, then use a pizza cutter to slice into triangles.

That looks delicious you old lady! I love pesto in pizzas! I didn’t know there were so many types of peacans! Wow! It’s so hard to find them here in Europe, I have to use walnuts must of the time.

Pecans are my favorite nut! I feel the need to put them in everything.
I’m going to try and find some fresh ones.

The pizza looks great!

Despite my in-laws SUPPOSEDLY owning a pecan farm somewhere outside of Austin, I am forced to use the ones I get at Costco. What luck, I just made a huge mess of pesto from my basil that took over my vegetable plot…

Hi Cindy,

The pecans are from Georgetown, but the Farmer’s Market is all the way in South Austin.
