Pesto Sauce

Pesto sauce has so many great uses, but on pizza instead of a red sauce is really fun. 
4 cloves garlic
2 cups basil leaves
1/4 cup walnuts, optional
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, optional
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
Mix garlic, basil, walnuts, and parmesan in a food processor or blender.
While running, pour the oil in in a stream.
Process until smooth and beautiful.
TIP: Pesto sauce freezes especially well without any cheese.  But either way, you can pour the leftover pesto sauce into ice cube trays, let freeze, then empty into a ziplock bag and store if freezer and use as little or as much as you need later.
