Smoked Salmon and Pesto Pizza

Smoked Salmon and Pesto Pizza

So I’m currently writing this post from the comfort of the backseat of a rental car driving on the Western slope of the Rockies and into Utah. It’s been fun really. We have experienced almost every type of weather you can imagine. From snow, to rain, to sun and more…Well I guess we have yet to drive through a hail storm, a tornado or a hurricane, but you get the picture. If you were wondering, it is currently raining. Anyway, we decided to make pizza last night. It’s usually our go-to when we are getting ready to venture out for the weekend. It’s easy and filling and perfect when you’ve got a ton of other things on you mind. Little did we know, this pizza came out surprisingly better than we had hoped for! It was like magic! Except for the salmon part. I don’t like salmon, but we’ll get more into that in a minute…
