Polenta pizza crust with creamy avocado pesto! The crust for this pizza is made with just polenta — no added flours — that has been seasoned with Italian herbs and just a dash of hot sauce. The creamy avocado pesto is made from fresh basil and roasted hazelnuts and then it's all topped with spicy arugula and fresh peas. Perfect for spring, but feel free to add your favorite veggie toppings.
