Leak and Mushroom Pizza with Pumpkin Pesto Sauce

Leek and Mushroom Pizza

These pizzas are perfect for a quick and easy weekend lunch. It is super tasty and easy to make. Feel free to make your own pesto or pizza crust to make it your own. You could also add additional toppings like red onion or nuts, but I think it tastes great as is.
