Put all green in and you get all green out – vibrant green in this case. I had been craving pesto all week so finally made some and I am glad I waited a bit because 5 minutes before making … Continue reading
Looks good, right? It’s probably my mad pizza making skills I learned during my stint in a family pizza joint. A little side story was my friends loved that I worked there because it meant discount pizza for them and me smelling like pizza (specifically pepperoni) whenever I met up with them on Fridays and Saturdays. I hated it just for the latter – my hair ALWAYS smelled like pizza. But it did teach me how to top the perfect pizza!
This was Über delicious and totally made my day that much better. Healthy and flavorful, quick and simple. The Spinach Pecan Pesto brought out the flavors of the veggies and added a nice nutty flavor. With the simple multi-grain flatbread this was all around delicious lunch. Need I say more.
1 flatbread (I used multi-grain flat out brand)
Spinach Pecan Pesto (or other pesto)
Chicken breast, cooked and cubed
Yellow and Orange Bell Peppers
1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
Lay flatbread on baking sheet. Apply a thin layer of pesto, top pesto with your chosen ingredients (you don’t have to use what I used) and then sprinkle a little parmesan – just a little does the trick!
Bake in over at 325 for 5-8min or until it has a nice crisp edge (that’s how I like it).
Sit down and enjoy…don’t share…maybe one slice to a lucky individual.
Reminds me of the time my friends and I stopped in Napoli (Naples, Italy) just to eat pizza – we had a contest to see who could finish first – I took 3rd…out of 6 – middle road is ok by me – I wanted to savor every single bite and not feel guilty about eating a whole pizza to myself!
I was craving pesto but didn’t have basil or pine nuts so I decided to substitute basil with different green source and pine nuts with different nuts. My ending concoction – spinach and pecan pesto and delicious at that. Super … Continue reading
