Ramp and Chèvre Pizza with Red Pepper Pesto and Spelt Crust

April 23, 2012

Author Notes: Let's be clear: This pizza is assembled from store-bought ingredients. If you'd like to make your own spelt crust and red pepper pesto, it will be amazing. The spelt dough I buy weighs about a pound and generally yields two thin pizzas, so it would be easy to double.Shalini
