You Need to Try This Easy and Fresh Tomato Pizza with Pesto Recipe

Want to make your own pizza but intimidated by the idea? Thinking about making your own pizza may have you imagining having to toss dough into the air. No worries, since this recipe definitely doesn't require anything complicated like that. In fact, you won't even be making your own crust.

While some pizza makers may swear by making your own crust at home, the reality is that many home cooks simply don't have the time for such things. It's much easier to do as this recipe instructs and purchase a pre-made pizza shell from the store.

This pizza recipe is perfect for a quick dinner that the family will love. It's healthier than ordering pizza, and more affordable as well. Make sure you keep this recipe on hand for whenever you need something simple in the upcoming week. Now, let's check out this recipe!
