Cream Cheese Pesto 'Pizza'
Perhaps this does not look like much, but it is delightful and can be prepared with a baby strapped to your chest. Simplicity itself, this recipe consists of cream cheese and fresh pesto spread over challah slices and toasted in the oven until the cheese is soft and the bread crispy. Then I grind a little bit of pepper over the top and eat it while it is still as hot as possible. I got this recipe from my Aunt Diane, who made it with pita bread, but I like how the challah becomes light and crispy when you toast it, but remains the tiniest bit soft on the inside. Don't skimp on the cream cheese, you really want to bit through it when you eat this and it goes really well with the pesto.
