It’s the first week of Summer Break! It took until like the last week in May for me to feel excited about it and I think it was because that was when I finally got all the kids in their activities for the summer and figured out a work schedule that would actually let me play with my kids this summer. And now I’m PUMPED they are finally out of school! We took them out of activities while we were selling our house and moving so I have #allthemomguilt and I’m ready to see them all jazzed at being back at it.
The catch to all of it is that *all* of our summer activities are at night! Like right around the time my family should be eating dinner. Or they end like at the time we usually sit down for dinner. EEEEEP! Every.single.night. So I’m on the hunt for easy dinner recipes that can be prepped ahead of time or have very little prep time and very little cooking time.
That shouldn’t be hard, I mean, this like my job, right? Lol!
EASY PESTO PIZZA RECIPE
So this Easy Pesto Pizza totally fits the bill! It is full of delicious summer flavors of tomatoes and basil and it is literally five minutes of prep and less than ten minutes of cooking time. Which means that you can have this guy on your table in under 15 minutes. Throw together a great summer salad while the pizza is cooking and you are totally set! And it is ridiculously yummy. It would also work perfectly as a fast party appetizer!
THE PERFECT CHEESES FOR PESTO PIZZA
Crystal Farms Shredded Mozzarella and Shredded Parmesan are the perfect cheeses for this pizza! They are delicious, natural with few preservatives, and a rich source of protein. Their Shredded Mozzarella is our go-to for pizza night because it melts so perfectly and I want to put their Shredded Parmesan on all.the.things.
