 pesto?
I have some left from a chicken recipe I made and I'm not sure what I want to do with it.  I thought about getting a french loaf and making a pizza with it but instead of using pizza sauce I'd use the pesto.  Has anyone done that?  Do you think it would be good?

 We don't use it. Here's hoping that you find an answer.

 :) thank you!
I am 38 and just finally got around to trying it, lol.  I really like it.  I've even put a little in my Alfredo sauce before.

I really like it as the sauce for cheese tortellini. I've also used it as a sauce for chicken and penne, yes, it's good as a replacement for pizza sauce.

 I did it with chicken once and that was pretty good.
I'll have to try it on tortellis!
Thanks!
