Feta Salami Pizza

Jump to Recipe

I have said it before and I will keep saying it – I LOVE PIZZA! Next to burgers and right before tacos, it is one of the most versatile types of food. You can do some much with the base (hello cauliflower), the sauces, meats, cheeses, veggies. You can have sweet or savory pizza. I mean the possible combinations is only limited by your own creativity. My creativity brought me to this Feta Salami Pizza the other night and it was a win. The Pesto Tomato sauce was the real star – piled up with feta cheese crumbles, salami and mushrooms.

For the sauce, I combined my super simple red pizza sauce with my non-traditional pesto (I use cashews instead of pine nuts) and made a delicious base for these yummy ingredients. I used my immersion blender to make the sauce smooth. You could also use a food processer or blender. Just be sure that you use grated parmesan and not shredded for this recipe. And also be sure to roughly chop the cashews before trying to blend them, or it takes a really long time to get the sauce to smooth out. This sauce would also be good over a big bowl of pasta with a nice grilled chicken breast on top.

Salami is always in my house. We are mostly all grazers throughout the day. And the most common go to is a piece of cheese and a few slices of salami. We go through the big Costco double pack of salami a few times a month. And I went with the feta to get a little bit of tang to go with the sweetness of the tomatoes. If you don’t care for feta (I know not everyone does) – you could swap out for mozzarella and it would still be tasty.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
