Remove pizza from all packaging
Place pizza in the oven directly on the oven rack and bake for 17-18 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
Meanwhile, prepare the pesto. Using a mortar and pestle, pound and grind the pine nuts into a smooth paste. Add garlic and grind into a smooth paste.
Next, add basil and sea salt and pound and grind until the leaves are finely torn.
Finally, add parmesan and olive oil, and combine into a smooth sauce. Taste and add salt as needed.
Once the pizza is cooked, remove from the oven, spoon pesto evenly over the pizza, cut into squares, and enjoy!
