    This pizza was delicious and easy to make. I used fresh tomatoes and dough from the bakery. This recipe is a keeper. Will definitely make this again!

    I cheated and used Boboli crust. Delicious - the family loved it. Used vine tomatoes and they were a bit weepy, otherwise it would've been a 5 star recipe.

    Absolutely delicious. This reminds me of a pizza I had while in Italy. It's a delicious adaptation of the Margherita pizza. The only thing I would do different is to spread all the basil/garlic mixture on before baking. The raw garlic that was added after the pizza came out of the oven was very strong.

    Simple and delicious. What more can you ask for? I used vine-ripened tomatoes instead of heirloom and they worked great. I didn't find this too garlicky at all and actually put a bit of the extra sauce on my plate to dip my crust in. Definitely going into the regular rotation.

    Fantastic, fresh and flavorful! Just received the August 2013 edition of Cooking Light Magazine and I had to make this pizza. I have never made or cooked with pesto before and I am glad I attempted this recipe. I was able to find fresh heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and I picked the basil fresh from my garden - I'm making it again tonight for friends!!!!

    This truly was outstanding! The flavor was amazing. I couldn't get the basil-olive oil-garlic sauce to be smooth, but no matter, it was still fantastic. Easy to make and delicious. Highly recommend.

    Easy, delicious and fun to make together!! We used a bit more garlic than called for...since we LOVE garlic. So flavorful and so filling...a new favorite in our house!

    This pizza was unbelievable. It was easy and delicious- if you don't like very strong garlic flavor, I would recommend reducing the amount of garlic you use, but I thought it was perfect. I used regular store-bought tomatos on the vine since heirloom weren't available and it was still delicious. Will absolutely make again!!

    This was absolutely fabulous. I was a little nervous about the amount of garlic but it was so flavorful and easy to make. Definitely will be one of my "go to" pizza recipes.
