Pesto Pizza

This pizza’s loaded with flavour but still feels remarkably light. You can make your own dough, but sometimes life doesn’t leave you with much time, so we recommend grabbing a packet of dough mix. Fun and simple, this recipe’s great for getting the kids involved too. Roll it out, load it up and pop it in the oven – then just slice and serve for instant smiles.
