Bruschetta Pizza

You can have this pizza as an appetizer or a main course.  Bill and I had this as an after work snack.  Not a good idea when you go to the gym afterwards. 

Bruschetta Pizza

1/2 package pre-made pizza dough  * use whole package double ingredients below*
1 Tbls toasted sesame seeds
olive oil

1/2 cup freshly packed basil
2 Tbls lemon juice
3 garlic cloves chopped
1/4 cup nuts ( any kind you have) 
1/4 cup olive oil 
salt and pepper

2 ripe roma tomatoes
1/2 white or yellow onion
1/2 cup fetta cheese

1. roll out dough to desired shape and size, brush edges with olive oil and sesame seeds. 
2.  Make Pesto: 
Basil, lemon juice, garlic, nuts, olive oil, salt and pepper  in food processor - blend until pesto consistency. Spread on crust. 

Chop onion and tomatoes

3.Compile pizza 
 Finish with feta and balsamic dressing ( drizzle dressing on top)
