Baby Spinach Pesto – Pesto Pizza

For the Spinach Pesto Pizza, I used a pre-made pizza dough and made a little pizza bar.
I still surprise how great quality these pre-made pizza dough has nowadays! I only had to roll it out on a pan, put my toppings and bake it for 15-20 minutes.
So this pesto pizza had spinach pesto (obviously), very thin slices of onion, mini mozzarella balls (halved) and chicken breast cold cuts. For the pizza bar, I sautéed some mushrooms, halved some more mozzarella, grated cheese, diced red bell pepper, sliced some olives and poured some extra pesto in a glass if anyone wanted some more!
The pizza bar was really popular, and everyone loved the pesto pizza!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that before spinach pesto, my family hardly ever ate any spinach and now it’s their favorite. So this pesto is a great way to endear spinach with everyone!
