This is part 2 of my series on Ultimate Homemade Pizza. For Part 1 (on Dough) CLICK HERE. We prepare a lot of different toppings, including homemade pesto, which makes an excellent substitute or compliment to tomato sauce. Most toppings will have to wait for the day of, but pesto can be made a day or two in advance.
One can do this by hand or with the Food Processor. Today was rainy, and we felt lazy. It’s also hard work to get a really fine texture with the mortar and pestel.
All ingredients in.
Bass-o-matic! A little pepper tossed in too.
The final result. Intensely basil — and green!
This is a photo of another time when I did it the hard way. Takes some serious elbow grease.
