I think I am the last person on the face of the earth that has tried pesto. I had it sometime last week when Jason and I found a new breakfast spot in our ‘hood. I ordered an omelet that came with a side of pesto, and my life was forever changed. Now, I pretty much want pesto on all the things. Well, all the food things, anyway
You know what else I love? FETA (but seriously, look how many recipes I have posted that include feta, I’m not even kidding right now).
…and do you know what else I love besides pesto, and feta cheese? Pizza, Pizza! Who doesn’t love pizza though, right? If you don’t at least like pizza, we probably can’t be friends. #sorrynotsorry
Feta cheese is a cheese we use often at Casa de Crews; in salads, meatballs, omelets, I could keep going. I did make it on a Greek Pizza once that was loaded with flavor, but had too many toppings and was messy to eat.
Then I remembered I could use naan – oh naan. Thin crust, smaller portions (so I don’t eat alllll the pizza) and less toppings. Less toppings means I need better ingredients and lots of fresh flavors, right?
While I suppose any feta would do for this recipe, I really like Nikos feta, specifically their Tomato Basil Feta – because when you think flatbread pizza, you probably don’t think of feta, but why not? Nikos Tomato Basil is zesty, flavorful and perfect for my pizza!
Plus, Jason doesn’t love fresh tomatoes like I do, so I still get my tomato-y goodness from a food I love, cheeeeese. I always win in the end, my friends. Feta + Pesto = heaven in my mouth.

Jennifer @ The Foodie Patootie says
you know what I’m #sorrynotsorry about? The fact that I would’ve cancelled our happy hour plans if I had discovered that you hadn’t had pesto.
Hahaha, I can’t even blame you. Though I think I have had it on a sammich or two, but must not have been life changing like it is on this naan…
i need this in my belly right now!
Come visit in Florida and I will make it for you!
This sounds really good. I am a fan of Pesto and Feta!!
I am just sad I didn’t discover this combo, sooner. It is so damn tasty!

This looks really good!

I freaking love naan pizza. This looks great!
Get out of here with that amazing feta – I would probably eat the entire tub!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
We need a naan party with this feta version and the 2 you shared this week!
I love feta cheese too! I put it in my eggs every morning. That sun dried tomato feta is one of my ultimate must have fridge items.
This is pinned for later. <3
Feta on eggs is always a good idea!
