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. —Lois McAtee, Oceanside, California


  • 6 medium firm tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 prebaked 12-inch pizza crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained, optional
  • 1/2 cup diced green pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Place tomato slices in a circle on crust, overlapping slightly until crust is completely covered. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with olives if desired, green pepper and onion. Sprinkle with basil.
  2. Cover with mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
