  • 1/3 cup good quality grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper


  • Heat a grill or broiler to high.
  • Brush both sides of bread lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt
  • Grill bread lightly on both sides, or heat under the broiler just until bread starts to warm and bubble. Do not let it get to brown.
  • Remove bread from heat, and spread pesto on one side.
  • Top pesto with sliced tomatoes, and add cheese if desired.
  • Turn grill or broiler to low, return pizza to heat just long enough to heat ingredients through and let cheese melt. About 2-3 minutes.
