Have a craving for pizza on a hot summer day? This pizza is just bursting with summer flavors! It’s loaded with healthy items such as basil, pine nuts, spinach, tomatoes, and just about anything else you might want to add on! It’s a perfect recipe with healthy foods straight from your summer garden. I usually make this pizza when I am entertaining my girlfriends … it goes great with a glass of red wine, it’s healthy and a little bit froofy for girl time!
