Pesto Mushroom Pizza

      In no time flat you can enjoy this hot and bubbling, presto Pesto Mushroom Pizza from Buitoni.  Unless you use a 14 inch dutch oven, you may have to shave a little off of the 12 inch crust for it to fit completely in your smaller oven.  In my 12 inch dutch oven it baked for 25 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and 24 on the lid.  It's a good, lickity split camping recipe and with so few ingredients won't even take up much room in your cooler.
