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 (14x9 in.)
  • 7 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup 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 15x10x1-in. baking pan with some of the melted butter. Unroll phyllo dough; cut stack into a 10-1/2x9-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.

"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!"

"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!"
