Put all ingredients for the dough in your bread making machine, select the pizza dough setting and press start. Prepare a 25 x 25 cm sheet of parchment paper.
Take the dough out of your machine and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Spread out the dough with your hands. Make the edges a tad thicker, for the crust. Preheat the oven to 392°F/200°C.
Gently pierce the surface of the dough with a fork, about 30-40 times.
Spread the basil pesto all over the surface, and very lightly pour some heavy cream on top.
Top with lots of pizza cheese and bake it for 20 minutes at 200°C.
It's done. Slice carefully so you don't get burned, and enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
I couldn't find a nice combination of ingredients for a pizza recipe that would be the perfect size to satisfy two people. I tried various recipes and finally came up with this. The pesto genovese recipe is not new for me, but I got the idea about heavy cream on the pesto from a restaurant I visited.
If you don't have all purpose flour, use 200 g of strong flour or a mixture made with 160 g of strong flour and 40 g of cake flour instead. I used pizza cheese this time, but if you have mozzarella or mascarpone, I recommend you use them! The pizza will turn out even more delicious.
