Hi Sharmi,

Do try, you will like it. Also, we can make thin crust pizza but without toppings and serve this pesto with Olive oil or Avocado oil it tastes divine.

cheers.

Hi :)
we were looking for a recipe for a dip we tried the other day and found this one of yours which is similar. I made yours tonight and it is delicious. I didn't quite have enough cashews on hand (someone couldn't keep their fingers off them!) so I added just a few unsalted chopped peanuts and some pepitas. Thank you for a great recipe :)
