Pesto Pea Pizza

Do your kids love pizza? Maybe it’s time to introduce them to this recipe! Topped with ricotta cheese, this particular recipe grills the pizza dough. Once the dough is grilled, you can put the toppings and put it back on the grill for around 2-3 minutes.

If you’re using canned peas, you may place them last since they are already cooked and heat them for a couple of seconds.
