Feta Pesto and Onion Pizza

June 16, 2011


“Hodgepodge pizza” might be a better name. I literally grabbed an armful of half empty, almost expired ingredients out of the fridge and threw this together on Wednesday night.  Turned out to be blog worthy!

I wanted pizza but my fiancé was on pizza overload and couldn’t stomach the thought of red sauce. So, I concocted something a bit different. We had some open pesto in the fridge that I imagined would work nicely with onions and cheese, oh and some tangy feta. Turns out I was right (and I like being right).  So, that’s how this super tasty, cheesy pesto and onion pizza came to be.


1 premade whole wheat pizza crust  (any brand)

1 cup pesto

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/3 onion sliced into thin rings

1/4 cup feta cheese

Directions: Bake according to instructions on the crust package. (I used a non-frozen crust and baked it at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes.)

Start by spreading and even layer of pesto on the crust. Next, top with cheddar cheese, then feta, then the onion rings. In that order! Only kidding. Bake until done.


Reminiscent of a Pizza Hut commercial, no?




Serve with a simple salad (mixed greens tossed with a splash red wine vinegar and olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper). Feast.

You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation however
I find this matter to be really one thing that I believe I might
by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad
for me. I am having a look forward to your next put up, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

Your photos made the recipe look so good that I just had to try it out! Let me tell my family went nuts over it!! I have made it several times since – they never want Pizza Hut after making this! Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful! That is music to my ears. So glad you and your family liked it.

This looks so good. The crust looks like the perfect thickness! I love pizza and here in Israel its very hard to find a great slice so we always have to make our own!

This looks great! I love traditional tomato sauce pizza, but the pesto and feta are a great way to mix up one of my weekly standbys. Thanks KISF!

I think I can ALWAYS eat pizza – no matter how often I’ve eaten it – but is definitely a must try! Looks delicious!

I’m like you, I could eat pizza every night of the week!
