Sunday Supper: White Pizza with Fresh Basil

After having a yummy carb induced coma breakfast with Mal, my body was craving.. well more carbs, particularly, a yummy slice of pizza. I decided to use some leftovers in the fridge to pull together a homemade and healthier version of the traditional pie.

White Pizza with Fresh Basil
3-4 tablespoons pesto with basil
1/2 cup of shredded fresh mozzarella cheese (substitute: skim shredded italian cheese blend)
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
pinch of pepper
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 flatout wrap for crust
olive oil cooking spray

Preheat broiler. Heat baking sheet in broiler while prepping pizza. Lightly coat crust with cooking spray. Spread pesto evenly over crust, leaving a 1-inch border.

Sprinkle shredded cheese. Dollop ricotta with a teaspoon. Broil for 2-5 minutes, until cheese is melted. Top with fresh basil.

Enjoy! Happy Sunday!
