A delicious twist on a classic pesto recipe, this version uses arugula and walnuts!
- 1 box or bag of fresh arugula
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1–2 tbsp honey
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth, but still slightly textured. If the mixture seems too dry, add a little more olive oil.
Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Top your pizza with pesto two ways:
- As a base layer for a white (or in this case green) pizza. Then, layer on top fresh mozzarella or ricotta, along with figs and prosciutto.
- In dollops on top of a crushed tomato sauce base for a green and red pizza!
