I’ve probably mentioned it a few times here already, but I love pizza. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I really had to … just kidding, you definitely wouldn’t need to ask me twice!
I love experimenting with gourmet pizza toppings, and that’s how this Grape, Feta, and Pesto Pizza recipe came about. Something told me grapes would be tasty on a pizza, and after a little kitchen experimentation, I’d created this delicious pizza.
You are going to love easy feta pesto pizza recipe just as much as I do. It has the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors, and it’s so simple to make!
Have you ever had fruit on a pizza? I have to admit that the first time I tried pizza with fruit I was pretty skeptical that it would taste good.
The combination of sweet flavors from the fruit, mixed with salty flavors from the cheese was so tasty though. I was hooked and have even created a few of my own recipes (my Fresh Plum, Walnut, and Gouda Pizza and Gorgonzola Pear Pizza are faves) since then!
I had a surplus of grapes recently and needed to use them up fast. So I thought, why not try grapes on a pizza?
And you know what? My red grape pizza ended up being so good that I made it twice and couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you!
How to Make Grape, Feta, and Pesto Pizza
So let’s talk about how to make this vegetarian pesto pizza recipe. It’s super simple!
I pretty much always use premade pizza dough (the kind you’d get at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, not the canned stuff) for my pizzas. It saves so much time and makes weeknight pizza dinners quick and easy.
For this Pesto, Grape, and Feta Pizza, I used a prepared pizza crust (similar to Boboli). Although I generally prefer working with dough, the premade crust made this recipe even faster.
So feel free to use a prepared crust instead of dough, if you’d prefer.
You’ll place the crust or pizza dough on a pizza pan (I have this one from Target), and then it’s time for the toppings!
A layer of pesto and an optional sprinkle of red pepper flakes are next. (The hint of heat from the pepper flakes works great with the sweet flavors of this pizza.) Then, you’ll cover the pesto with cheese. I used an Italian blend, but mozzarella would work great, too.
Grapes and red onion come next—those are your sweet flavors—followed by more cheese, and finally, the feta—your salty flavor. Blue cheese would be a super delicious substitute for the feta, if you want to experiment.
Bake your easy pesto pizza until the crust is browned and crisp, and then it’s time to dig in.

This yummy Grape, Feta, and Pesto Pizza is the perfect blend of sweet, salty flavors!
- 1 prepared pizza crust (such as Boboli), or 1 lb pizza dough
- 1/2 cup pesto
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, optional
- 1 1/2 cups Italian blend cheese, divided
- 1 small red onion, halved and sliced
- 1/2 cup (generous) red grapes, halved
- 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place pizza crust on a pizza pan. (If you're using dough, lightly spray pan with nonstick spray first, then press to edges of pan.)
Spread pesto over crust, using just enough for a thin coat.*
Sprinkle pesto with red pepper flakes, if using.
Cover pizza with 1 cup of the Italian blend cheese.
Top cheese with onions, grapes, remaining Italian blend cheese, and feta (in that order).
Bake pizza for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is crisp and browned and the toppings are hot.
Let pizza rest for a few minutes, then cut into wedges and serve. Enjoy!
*Prepared pesto runs the gamut from totally delicious to completely bland. Taste your pesto, and if the flavor seems a little dull, add a light sprinkle of salt over the pesto after you spread it on the pizza crust.
