In this recipe, we’re topping fluffy focaccia bread with melty mozzarella and seasonal produce, including sweet corn and bell pepper. Dollops of basil pesto (loaded with cheese, garlic, and pine nuts) complement the vegetables, while juicy tomatoes—marinated with a splash of vinegar and fresh mint—make a final gourmet topping for our pizza.
