My friend, Lisa, brought me a big bunch of basil that she grew in her garden. If I had to choose a favorite herb, it would be basil. Wait, is cilantro an herb? It might be a tie.
Anyway, what better way to use fresh basil than to make it into pesto? And what better way to use pesto than to spread it on a pizza? They serve a similar pizza to this at Sauce and I love it. Here is our homemade version.
