The Guide for Perfect Pesto Pizza
Pesto pizza can be wonderfully simplistic, but creating that perfect pesto-y pie can also be a challenge sometimes. With these simple tips, you'll learn how to craft the perfect genovese pesto, keep your pie looking bright and vibrant, and what cheeses to add to make your pesto shine.
Speaking of cheese, I'm going with a three-part mix. A bottom later of grated parmesan, followed by fresh mozzarella (di bufala if you're wearing your fancy pants), and dollops of ricotta. As the pie bakes, the mozzarella spreads out into a milky blanket, while the dollops of ricotta soften and the pesto spreads, touching and mingling with the ricotta in a way that would be considered inappropriate in some, more restrictive, societies.
