Pizza Night

Whole wheat pizza with basil-walnut pesto, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms, spinach, red peppers and tomatoes.

Basil-Walnut Pesto
Conflated from recipes all over the web

  • 2 Cu. basil
  • 2 Cu. parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 Tbs lemon juice together with a small amount of zest
  • 1.5 Cu. walnuts or pecans or both (toasted in the oven then cooled)
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 to 1.5 Cu olive oil
  • Maybe some miso or nutritional yeast
But what was really good about the pizza was slicing crimini mushrooms and mixing them with some oil, salt, pepper and crushed garlic and then roasting them in the oven at 400° until they form little mushroom chips. These are so good it's hard not to eat them all before putting them on the pizza.
