Basil Pesto

Basil Pesto

When making my “Green Pizza” for St Patty’s Day I knew I had to use a pesto to make the sauce green to go with the theme of the pizza!

I made a pesto sauce in a Home Ec class in Middle School and that was the first and only time I had the sauce until a few years ago. Not a lot of pesto in Oklahoma 😉

So glad it is back in my life now and I wanted to make my own to top the super fresh and healthy “green pizza”!!
