Pesto and Amy's Spinach Pizza

There was a time I didn't appreciate pesto; maybe it's an acquired taste. Now, I look forward to pesto every summer and become very irritated when the squirrels get the basil before I do. (Last year.)

Hasn't happened this year. Yet. 

In addition to basil, a standard pesto recipe includes pine nuts, olive oil and Parmesan, I buy these at Costco. (Amazon has Kirkland pine nuts for sale at a large markup,) 

In past years, I've blended the cheese in the Cuisinart with the other ingredients, but this year, following an Internet recipe, I stirred in the grated cheese at the end. I liked that better. 

To me, Amy's spinach pizza, now in the Costco freezer section, is missing pesto. I saw the green and expected a pesto taste, but it's a mild spinach flavor.
