Tomato-Onion Phyllo Pizza Recipe

With a delicate crust and lots of lovely tomatoes on top, this dish is a special one to serve to guests. I make it often when fresh garden tomatoes are in season. It freezes well unbaked, so I can keep one on hand to pop in the oven for a quick dinner.—Neta Cohen, Bedford, Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:28 servings


  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 14 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 7 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1 pound plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. Brush a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with some of the melted butter. Unroll phyllo dough; cut stack into a 10-1/2-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Discard scraps.
  • 2. Line bottom of prepared pan with two sheets of phyllo dough (sheets will overlap slightly). Brush with butter and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Repeat layers 5 times. (Keep dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel until ready to use to prevent it from drying out.)
  • 3. Top with layers of remaining phyllo dough; brush with remaining butter. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese; arrange onion and tomatoes over cheese. Sprinkle with oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Yield: 28 slices.

"SOOO good, and not difficult to make. I put it in the freezer as soon as I assembled it, and popped it into the oven the next day. It was beautiful and perfect. I'm making it again tonight, but crumbling bacon on top of it. Mmmmm...YUM!"
