Copycat Mellow Mushroom kosmic karma pizza recipe

Have you ever eaten at the Mellow Mushroom? They are known for their extensive vegetarian recipes, salads and, of course, pizzas. They also have wonderful and unique beers on tap which to me go great with the pizza! One of my favorite pizzas to order off of their menu is their Kosmic Karma pizza. It's so flavorful, probably one of the most flavorful pizzas I have eaten. It's loaded with three cheeses, fresh tomatoes, spinach and a big swirl of basil pesto. Make this pizza right at home with a few simple ingredients and skip the takeout. This is also a fun and easy recipe to allow your kids to help with. Make pizza night a fun family event for dinner!
