My children liked to eat pizza with a lot of toppings, so I developed this recipe. With fresh tomatoes available year-round here, we still make it often, even though the kids are grown. It's a delightful change from usual meat-topped pizza.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2011

I cannot believe I am the first one to rate this recipe. I have used this recipe for YEARS! It was printed in my very first TOH cookbook years ago. This recipe is so fabulous, and so simple. At first glance, it doesn't seem like much, but it IS. One of the secrets is using GREAT tomatoes. Even if they are juicy tomatoes you can make this recipe work by doing the one trick I use: Slice the tomatoes, then put them in your salad spinner and spin the liquid out! Then they are ready for the crust. Wallah! I do the rest pretty much as written, sometimes I add jarred garlic and oil to the crust BEFORE putting the tomatoes on. One more comment: My father in law is a big meat eater. When I made this for him, he couldn't believe how good it was, even without meat!
