This post is written in partnership with CK Mondavi and Family. As always, the opinions here are all my own.
Quick Pesto Mushroom Flatbread Pizza: super quick and delicious pizza that’s filled with the flavors of fresh pesto, mushrooms, caramelized onions and a hint of herb oil.
Paired with CK Mondavi & Family Wines, it’s the perfect pairing for any Summer gatherings or grill.
Mondays always arrive in a flash but thankfully, we had such an amazing Sunday gathering with loved ones, laughter and lots of wine!
Just before we say ‘Goodbye’ to the summers, we made this Quick Pesto Mushroom Flatbread Pizza and hosted an impromptu Wine + Pizza party at home.
Now, What could be Better than Homemade Crispy Pizza & Chilled Wine on a Sunday !!!!
Summer started slightly late this year and with this being the first weekend after back-to-school started, many of our loved ones needed some extra TLC 😉
So, I decided it’s time to turn on the grill (oven along with it ;), chill some wine and call them over to a homemade pizza party.
Even before I could discuss the idea with all, the news spread like crazy and almost everyone responded with a ‘YES’.
Geeez… I made about 20 pizzas and we literally had so many bottles chilled that I NEED a Separate Wine Chiller Now.
I chilled a variety of wines from CK Mondavi & Family (as we are starting at noon and the party will go on till dusk):
Pinot Grigio – Fresh & Crisp Texture
Merlot – Silky & Smooth Texture
Cabernet Sauvignon – Rich & Velvety Texture
But with my Quick Pesto Mushroom Flatbread Pizza, I’m serving the chilled ‘Pinot Grigio’.
The pizza has a slightly buttery finish to it as I’m drizzling a special ‘Tuscon Herb Oil’ on it before serving.
One bite of it and you’d have an explosion of delicious – buttery Italian flavors in your mouth and the fresh-crisp Pinot Grigio is simply DIVINE with it.
The CK Mondavi & Family Pinot Grigio is a medium-bodied wine filled with aromas of wildflowers, peaches, and pears.
Now, coming back to our Quick Pesto Mushroom Flatbread Pizza, it’s soooo easy to make that you’d really wonder why didn’t you ever try it at home earlier!
Now, most days, I would make the dough from scratch, make the homemade pesto and go about the pizza.
Since this is an impromptu party and I’m making 20 pizza (Helllooooo), I decided to use my Secret Ingredients that Makes Life So Much Easier:
Organic Pesto (I get this from a local farmers market and it’s as good/fresh as homemade ones)
Two Kinds of Cheese (Mozzarella & Emmental)
Tuscan Herb Oil (This is Powerful & Turns any food into OMG, it’s so yumm)
Once the secret ingredients are gathered, I quickly gather the toppings, Mushroom, Red Onions, Tomato and Seasoning.
You can definitely call it ‘Mushroom, Tomato & Caramelized Onion Pesto Pizza’ as well but I prefer the easy Quick Pesto Mushroom Flatbread Pizza 🙂
Once the Pizza is baked, I just placed everything in the extremely gorgeous ‘Pizza Stone’ sent to me by my dear CK Mondavi & Family along with a pizza slicer!
Even before I could announce, the meal is ready, I could see a huge smile on everyone’s faces as the smell from the kitchen had already sent the message much before.
So we poured the wines and enjoyed the rest of the Sunday with loved ones, delicious food and some really smooth n wonderful wine.
I would highly recommend you check the Store Locator for getting these CK Mondavi & Family wines for your next gathering.
The wines taste amazing and are prized perfectly to serve in small/large gatherings. They have a great varieties to choose from too.
