    Such a terrific looking pizza—could pass for homemade (though my crust would be much more rustic!). And such a yummy pairing with your pasta!

    Thanks for sharing! This recipe looks great. I recently started to enjoy Caprese salads and have been looking for a recipe to incorporate pasta into it. I’m not a fan of Alfredo – do you recommend any subsitutions?

    Both pizza and pasta look delicious! I love the idea of turning caprese salad into a baked pasta dish–because we can never have enough caprese, can we?

  4. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    Not sure what my kids would want more the pizza or pasta? Love that your paired them together for options.
