Pistachio Pesto Pizza with Arugula and Seitan Sausage
Pizza, yada, yada, yada... with pistachio pesto? Oooooooh!
We were watching "Pizza Outside the Box" on the Cooking Channel about different varieties of pizza, and the pistachio pesto pizza made by EVO in Charleston, SC jumped out at us as something we could actually adapt pretty easily. So we did ;)
The pesto part was fairly straightforward -- toasted pistachio nuts ground in the vitamix with olive oil and a pinch of salt.
We added fresh arugula, and a couple of fried seitan sausages...
...and topped it all of with Daiya mozzarella and then baked it (on our pizza stone) at 500F for 8 minutes, rotated and cooked for another 2-3 minutes.
