Pesto Pizza with Figs and Goat Cheese

 Throughout the summer, I picked basil from my mom's garden. It was overflowing, so I gave tons away and decided to make pesto...almond pesto.
It was amazing!!!

  To make the pizza, I spread the pesto (a generous amount) all over the crust, and added toppings to please everyone in our family. I like figs and goat cheese, the boys like salami and cheese, and my husband likes tomatoes and kalamata olives! It was a hit for everyone!

 The pesto is a TON of basil, parmesan, almonds, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil! So easy mixed in a food processor til you like the consistency. I made a past dish for a church supper simply by tossing pasta with pesto and homegrown tomatoes!
