I thought the pizza tasted great, but I will definitely cut back on the fresh minced garlic and the red pepper flakes because it made the pizza very spicy. Also, I did not use all the Pesto that is pictured in the bowl. I used the bowl to stir up the Pesto so that it would spread easier on the pizza. The actual recipe calls for a 1/3 cup of Pesto for a 12" pizza. I am sure that I used more than that on my 14" pizza, but I love Basil. At first, I was concerned that I had too much Fresh Mozzarella, but it melted just fine. Give this pizza a try. I think you will like it for a variety on your menu. Best to you.
