This simple pizza recipe used oven roasted tomatoes instead of pizza sauce!
1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Drizzle of olive oil
Fresh black pepper to taste
1 store bought pizza crust (11 ounce thin crust)
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fresh basil, sliced into thin strips
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Slice the tomatoes into 1/8 thick slices and place on baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray.
Season the tomatoes with salt, Italian seasoning pepper and olive oil and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.
Lower the oven to 425 degrees, then spread out the pizza crust out onto a clean baking sheet spreading to the edges as much as possible. Poke holes with a fork along the top of the crust so it doesn’t bubble up.
Bake the crust for 8 minutes then remove from the oven and top with the three types of cheese and the roasted tomatoes.
Place the pizza back in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 7-8 minutes.
Garnish with more parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
You can use any type of melting cheese for this pizza that you like! See the post for ideas!
This pizza can also be made fully, then frozen and reheated at 350 for 15 minutes.
