This pizza has tons of flavor. The recipe will make 1 15-inch pizza. The baking time assumes you will be using a pizza stone. If you are using an aluminum pizza pan (or a smaller pizza stone), you will have to compensate. The pizza dough calls for the use of a bread machine, but feel free to make your dough the traditional way as well. Also, although this looks like a long recipe, it comes together quite quickly...especially if you prepare the pesto and toppings while the pizza dough is in the bread machine. Prep time includes rising time as well as cooking time.If you make this completely from scratch, you will have a nice gormet-quality pizza. Alternately, you can take some shortcuts, and throw this pizza together in no time. Use a purchases pizza shell, some pesto from a jar, and even some well drained frozen spinach, and you can have this pizza ready in minutes!
