Tomato-Onion Phyllo Pizza

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 also keep one on hand to pop in the oven for a quick dinner.—Neta Cohen, Bedford, Virginia

    Hey. It’s 2021. I know this is an old recipe but I just made this for lunch and it is out of this world! I added a few cherry tomatoes and garlic powder along with the toppings. So so good.

    Don't be put off by the fact that this uses phyllo. This was surprisingly easy to put together. The flavor was wonderful and the dish was popular! We found it works best with plum tomatoes because they hold their shape the best. You can vary the recipe by using more pungent cheese or by adding toppings (parsley, greens, bacon...)

    Delicious. Next time I'm going to add a cup or so of chopped fresh spinach between the onions and tomatoes.

    I made this for the first time last night. I didn't have dried oregano or thyme, but I did have Italian Dried Herbs, which has that in it plus dried basil and dried marjoram. My husband LOVED it! So did I. It was very easy to make, turned out perfect and delicious. This will be one of my favorite recipes from now on!
