These healthy and homemade pesto pizza dinners are creatively decorated to look like Christmas trees for the holiday season. The dish is an ideal weekday or weekend meal to make with children letting them use the food as creative Christmas decorations.

The dish begins by rolling out pizza dough into a triangle shape to replicate the aesthetic shape of a large evergreen sampling. Rather than opting for tomato sauce, this pizza uses pesto as the main sauce to emulate the greenery of a pine tree. Then veggies such as peppers and onions can be used to represent strings of lights or Christmas bulbs hanging on the edible pizza tree.

This recipe showcases that consumers can add festive elements to their foods simply by transforming the aesthetic of the dish, moving beyond flavor.
