Turkey & Pesto French Bread Pizza

One of the easiest ways to make pizza is by using a ready made base, but you don't need to just use a pizza base and to be honest many supermarket ready made bases are not particularly tasty. A popular ready made bread product to use as a pizza base in this house is naan bread, especially the garlic and coriander ones as they have so much flavour. Another great alternative is French bread as it's a good way to use up your day old french bread.

This recipe uses very few ingredients and makes a very tasty pizza in around only 30 minutes. Great for  a Saturday night TV dinner or taking on a picnic
