Heirloom Pesto Pie

Rustic and satisfying, this pesto pie combines classic Italian flavors to create a delicious, ultimate comfort food. Our heirloom tomatoes are layered over homemade pesto, along with red onion, whole milk mozzarella, and savory parmesan. After the pesto pie has cooked, our lemony, peppery arugula and crunchy broccoli sprouts are added with a drizzle of balsamic glaze to tie all the flavors together with freshness and a hint of a sweet finish.
