Cheesy Pesto Pizza

This pizza is one of our absolute favorites, and it is so, so easy to make!
We love the frozen, prebaked pizza crusts available from Sam’s. They have a nice flavor and crisp texture, especially if baked on a pizza stone. You ask for them at the checkout counter, and they get them for you from the back. They also have frozen pizza dough balls. We personally prefer the taste and ease of use of the frozen, prebaked crusts. At less than a dollar a crust, they’re a bargain! You will need a fair amount of freezer space to store them. A great idea is to split the box with a friend! We go through them so fast, storage isn’t an issue for us!

Cheesy Pesto Pizza

Chopped grilled chicken is a nice addition to this pizza!

1 large Sam’s pre-baked pizza crust, thawed (Use a Boboli crust, if you prefer.)
½ cup jarred pesto (Use more or less to suit your taste. I use Classico Traditional Basil Pesto.)
1 (5-ounce) container shredded Parmesan, Asagio and Romano cheese blend
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded Gouda

Preheat oven and baking stone to 450 degrees.
Place crust on a pizza pan or baking sheet that you can slide it off of and onto the pizza stone heating in the oven, after you've added the toppings.
Brush pesto sauce over pizza crust.
Sprinkle on the Parmesan, Asagio and Romano cheese blend.
Top with mozzarella and Gouda.
Carefully slide pizza onto the preheated stone in the oven.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until cheeses are melted and crust is golden.
