I love this recipes it came out awesome! It was super easy to make, and very yummy. I was afraid it maybe a little bland but it wasn't, the pesto really added a lot of flavor, and I scaled back the recipe since no one else in my household wanted to try it. It's a very easy meal to make if you are trying to accomidate people who don't want a green pizza, you can simply put your stuff on one side and they can put more trditional toppings on the other, and everyone wins. Next time if I have leftovers from the previous day I may add some chicken too it.

Why not use cooler-weather vegetables like broccoli and arugula as an unconventional pizza topping? The arugula adds a slightly bitter, peppery tasteâ€”for a milder flavor, use spinach instead. Serve with wedges of fresh tomato tossed with vinegar, olive oil, basil and freshly ground pepper.

I think 3.5 stars seems more appropriate, but they don't allow half star ratings. I think this is a solid recipe. It was easy to make. I added some goat cheese, but think even just using more mozzarella like the recipe required would be better. The suggestion for the tomato salad accompanied it nicely. I would definitely make this again.
Husband is hard to please so the fact that he liked this says everything.
I made this last night and it was a hit. Even the kids loved it. I used about half the recommended amount of the pesto (because it is very high in fat and calories) and it still turned out great! A little pesto goes a long way. I used a mixture of spinach and arugula instead of all arugula. I also used reduced fat crescent rolls for the crust because I had them on hand.
The first time I tried this, my boyfriend grabbed me afterward and looked me in the eyes and told me that it "was some of the best food [he's] ever tasted..." and then hugged me. He doesn't even usually eat veggies.
I added feta, turkey kielbasa sausage, and mushrooms to the pizza. This recipe is definitely a new staple in our household. I guess the downside is that the pizza was so good, we caught each other sneaking to the kitchen in the night to eat the leftovers!
