Whole Wheat Veggie and Pesto Pizza

Dear the powers that be at Trader Joe’s,

You don’t know me but I am obsessed with your products.

I live in Utah and only visit your lovely establishment when I visit California or when my family there takes pity on me and sends me something to tide me over.

I promise to do my best to single handedly keep you in business if you build a store within 20 miles from me.  Oh and did I mention I have 4 boys?  They eat a lot.

Sincerely, Your biggest fan

I’m not sure that little letter will help but you can’t blame a girl for trying.

I have to give all the credit to my brother-in-law for this pizza.  He works magic with food.  For reals.  All I can say is it’s a good thing I don’t live closer or I am certain I would be the size of an elephant.

Despite all the ingredients being from Trader Joe’s this is not a sponsored post nor do the powers that be have any idea who I am.


  1. Loving this Krista! Veggie pizza is always my choice!

  2. I always feel a bit guilty when I hear this kind of thing, as I have three TJ’s fairly close to all of my daily work / etc.

    If there is something you’d like to try or need to have, I’d love to do a fun goodie swap with you someday… 🙂

  3. I d love to have a pesto pizza slice with lots of cheese! XD Looks heavenly good and believe me with your brother in laws pizza magic I d get an elephant bump. thx for sharing.

  4. I feel the same way – the closest Trader Joe’s to me is like 5 hours away. I would also do my part to keep them in business if only they would build one in Jacksonville!

  5. This pizza sounds fantastic, love mushrooms and artichokes. You know I don’t think we even have a Trade Joe’s here in Florida at all. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

    • Thanks Suzi! At least these are ingredients you can find everywhere but there is just something about Trader Joe’s produce. I’ve never had a bad experience with them.

  6. This pizza looks absolutely incredible! So gooey, cheesy, and delicious! I’m loving the artichokes and pesto.

  7. This pizza looks great!

  8. This looks fabulous! I miss Trader Joes. They are building one about an hour away and I can not wait for it to open! I haven’t been to TJ’s since we lived in Virginia.

  9. Still chuckling…we are getting the first Trader Joe’s in Colorado this year…are we closer than California?

    The pizza looks sooooo good; even if my tummy is not up to eating!

    • Thanks Barb! I’m guessing the distance would be about the same…unfortunately. Good thing my hubs travels so he can pick up extra peanut butter when we need it. He almost always gets his luggage checked on those trips!

  10. I finally lucked out! I can walk (yes, walk!) to one of many Trader Joe’s in the neighborhood. I love California:)
    And this is my kind of pizza – like everything about it!
