Ham and Pesto Pizza

ham and pesto pizza

If you are a busy parent I'm sure that you like a meal packed with flavour that can be ready in 15 minutes. This Ham and Pesto Pizza is so good that it will be back on the menu this month. As a mother there is nothing more rewarding than watching your kids eat and hear them say, "Wow mom this is so good!"

No need to make your own pizza dough for this recipe, don't worry and use Naan bread instead. I like to make pizza dough but it's time consuming and some nights I don't have the time to do it. I did not use tomato sauce on my pizza but rather this amazing Arugula Pesto. If you don't have the two minutes to prepare your own pesto just buy a jar at the store. At the same time grab some ham. I like cubes of ham on my pizza, but if you prefer slices of ham it will be just as delicious.  If I open a restaurant one day this will be on the menu. It's that good!
