    Hi Barbara – just made the tomato pesto and this pizza for lunch today – it was wonderful!!! Definitely filling after a couple of slices. Thank you for another great recipe!

    Your last two videos were very timely. I make pizza every week but was getting tired
    of just using whole canned tomatoes cut up for the sauce. So today I am making the
    sun dried pesto sauce topped with spinach, mushrooms, and a little mozzarella. I
    always use lots of veggies for toppings-I just drizzle the whole pizza with olive oil and dried or fresh herbs.
    The pesto was delicious, quite rich. We had a salad of mixed greens including arugula, red lettuce, and our first chard from the garden-so it was a great dinner!
    Thanks! Sandi

    You had told us about this salad without going into detail, and I must say it did not sound nearly as appetizing as it looks in your video.
    As a matter of fact I think that we are going to try it tonight! It looks delicious!
    As always, you look beautiful in your video. Keep up the good work.

    Barbara, I use a tomato base that has no sugar, and then mushrooms and goats cheese as my toppings. I haven’t made pizza at home in many years though. This inspires me. Especially the rice based dough which i have never heard of before!!

    Dear Barbara,
    I really enjoy receiving your monday videos. Thank you for another great healthy Idea. Can you please tell me the brand of the rice dough you used in this video?

    I have to say that I was not too excited when you first gave me this recipe (a while Back) but I was in fact stunned at how delicious it was!! I think it has to do with the lemon used as the dressing on the salad (instead of vinegar which would be too overpowering) combined with that delicious tomato pesto. This pizza is sooo good!

      I’ll tell ya Francesca, I have made this recipe for tons of friends (and have served it as the salad selection at several dinner parties) and it is always an overwhelming hit!
      Thanks again!
