I love, love, love this! We even had a pizza party so we'd have an excuse to make more. We top ours with feta, mozzarella, a bag of "Italian Cheese," tomato slices, mushroom slices, and red onion. Y U M!

what kind of cheese do you use for the pesto? We are very excited about making our own pizzas around here.

Also, to use avocados, I'm assuming you just throw them on the pizza with everything else?
