For Mediterranean Pizza with Lemon Pesto Sauce, add sliced red peppers, olives & onions and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Add shrimp if desired. Bake according to crust directions.

Or try this spread on a Panini with sliced turkey, salami and smoked provolone cheese. Sandwiches have never tasted so vibrant. Nice to serve while decorating the Christmas tree.
