Pesto Pizza and Fruit Salad

Pesto Pizza and Fruit Salad

I made two Pesto Pizzas paired with a Fruit Salad for dinner a couple nights ago.  Both were  a huge hit!  I made one pizza following the recipe and a second pizza with pepperoni for my husband.  I think that a ham would taste great on this as well.  I had to change the fruit salad a little.  I left out the strawberries.  This wasn’t for taste or allergies though.  I think that it would have been wonderful with the strawberries.  I simply forgot to buy enough strawberries to make this fruit salad when I bought the strawberries for the trifle.  The fruit salad was still absolutely wonderful.

Smoked Turkey Wrap

Smoked Turkey Wrap

I chose the smoked turkey wrap since it looked healthy and simple.  There was no real cooking involved at all.  Our family loves avocados, so any meal we can add them to we will.  The only thing I did differently was the heating of the wraps.  I put them in the microwave and flipped them every 30 seconds until they were warmed.

I paired it with a BLT Salad.  I used regular white bread instead of french bread.  I think that the french bread would have added more of a crunch.  If you use a regular white bread, baking it would probably make it crunchier than pan frying.  Overall, the whole family loved this dinner.  I enjoyed the leftover salad for lunch the next day!
