We are joining Phenny and Nelly today for In Purrsuit of Flavours~
The first thing mom does is to spread shortening liberally over her cookie sheet.
The simple directions are to spread one pound of dough with pesto that you find in a jar in the pasta aisle of your grocery store. You can arrange plum tomato slices on top of the pesto if you wish to but mom likes it better without this time of the year because tomatoes don't taste like tomatoes until summer. Add torn slices of mozzerella and arrange evenly over the pesto. Sprinkle with oregano, basil, pepper and parmesan cheese. Now sprinkle with a very tiny bit of olive oil.
