I just made some of the best pesto ever if I do say so myself. It had a different flavor from the store bought pesto you can get, but in my opinion, it was much better. I even conducted a blind taste test on Wade and he chose mine!
The finished product:
This pizza is more filling than a regular pizza. I think because of the chicken... anyways, this pizza fed all 3 of us, with a couple slices left over. I'm not exactly sure how much it cost, but here's an estimate:
4 chicken strips or 1 chicken breast- $1.50
block of mozzarella cheese - $1.79
Ingredients for crust (flour, yeast, water, drizzle of olive oil) on hand
Ingredients for pesto (fresh basil, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic) on hand
pine nuts - $2.00
Total - $5.29 for a dinner for 3 and a lunch for 1 the next day. = )
We also had cucumber & tomato salad with it from the garden:
..and of course dessert:
Graham crackers, pudding, and whipped cream - YUM! ..and very inexpensive as well!
