3 Cheese Pesto and Tomato Pizza

Taylor is very happy today. There are several reasons. First, she started recording her CD today. This is a huge step for her. With the exception of her making it through 4 rounds of X-Factor, this past year, she has been working and saving to chase her dream of recording her own music. Someone heard her sing over this past weekend and low and behold, they have a recording studio. They liked her music and as I type this she is recording her songs. Written and performed by her. It is an exciting day for her and I could not be more proud. It is a great step for her.
To get her prepared for her session today I made her some Gluten Free 3 Cheese Pesto Pizza. Venice bakery located in California has a tremendous selection of  Gluten free, Dairy free, Egg free and Soy Free Pizza Crusts! Some of you may think; "well it must be flavor free too then!" Nope! Taylor LOVED the 3 Cheese Pesto and Tomato Pizza I made for her today.
I used their gluten free pizza crusts. So simple to make! Their line of gluten-free pizza crusts including plain, seasoned, individually-packed, bulk-packed, all vacuum sealed (Modified Atmosphere Packaged for even longer shelf life).
The great thing is you don't have to live in the Sunshine State to get them. They deliver! You can order online here. They also have Foccacia breads and flat breads. SCORE!
Here is how I made the pizza:

2 TBSP Pesto (store bought or homemade)
2  TBSP cream cheese
1 TBSP Parmesan Cheese
3 slices mozzarella
5 cherry tomatoes sliced
1 individual gluten free pizza crust from Venice Bakery
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Spread the Pesto on the pizza crust.
Drop the cream cheese in 1/2 tsp amounts all over the pizza. 
Cover with thin slices of Mozzarella.
Sprinkle with Parmesan.
Top with sliced Cherry Tomatoes. 
Bake for 8 minutes directly in the oven. 

If you are smarter than me, you will place a drip pan a shelf below the pizza to catch drippings. Yeah... My self clean is now running to make up for my ignorance. Thankfully Taylor's happiness made up for it.
