Author Notes

I only started eating pesto 2 years ago when I got pregnant. So I tried it with everything. Pizza has always been a favorite in our home. My husband puts bacon on EVERYTHING so naturally bacon was added. Mozzarella is my cheese of choice.....which I partly blame for my weight gain while pregnant.My son now eats it plain as a snack!I This pizza is great as a appetizer or paired with your favorite salad! —calmama08
