Pecan Pizza Recipe

Pizza with Pecan Herb Topping

Yield: 1 8 slice pizza

Prep time: Approx. 20 minutes

Total Time: 40  minutes


List of Ingredients

1 store-bought pizza dough

1/2 cup jarred pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup thinly sliced red pepper

1/2 cup thinly sliced vidalia onion

1 cup raw Rancho Pecana pecan halves or pieces

1/2 cup fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional

Salt and pepper



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. On a clean surface, flour the area and roll out the pizza dough until it is ⅛ inch thick. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet and pierce the dough with a fork to present air pockets when it bakes. Place the baking sheet in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  3. While the dough is baking; add pecans, parsley, and garlic powder to a food processor. Process the ingredients until it becomes a coarse crumb and transfer to a bowl. In this mixture stir in the parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, and set aside.
  4. After the crust is ready, spread the pizza sauce over the rust and top with mozzarella cheese, red pepper slices, and onion slices. Sprinkle ⅓ cup of the pecan mixture evenly over the pizza.
  5. Transfer the pizza once again into the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve with the rest of the pecan herb mixture.
