Dear 100 Hour Board,

I have recently refound my love of pesto. Where can the best pesto (quality, and price) be found in the area? Where does BYU purchase theirs?

A: Dear Tiki,

Isn't Pesto just an amazing thing? I think Pesto Sauce should be knighted... so it can be Sir Pesto.

Anyways, I have found decent pesto sauces at Smiths and Costco on occasion. The Smiths version was pretty expensive.

If you're interested in Pesto on your Pizza (which I sure am interested in) you should try Pier 49 Sourdough Pizza (one on Center Street, the other on north University Ave). The new Pizza Place above the Thai restaurant on 820 N. also has a decent Pesto Pizza. He also makes these Pesto pizza rolls... they are quite tasty (but cause some serious indigestion and unpleasant breath... it is a small price to pay).

SO, most grocery stores sell Pesto sauce, it is just expensive. Costco has sauce in more bulk, and it is pretty good.

Enjoy your Pesto. It's easy going green.

That is all.
