- 1/2 cup pecans
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

- 2 tomatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
- 2 small peaches, sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
- In a food processor, chop the garlic. Add 1/2 cup basil, the pecans, 1/2 cup olive oil, the parmesan, vinegar, salt and pepper and puree into pesto.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface into a 14-inch square. Cut into 8 squares and prick each one several times with a fork. Place on a lightly floured baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake until golden, 12 minutes. Let cool.
