Heirloom Tomato Pizza

The flavor of this pizza was spot on. But the crust left something to be desired. I used a fresh pizza dough. I prebaked it a little. I should have baked it until the crust was crisp on the bottom. The tomatoes have so much moisture the crust couldn’t get crisp it was a little chewy.

Pizza crust


Fresh mozzarella

Sliced fresh tomatoes

Fresh basil chopped

Preheat your oven to 450. If you are using a fresh dough bake it until crisp then assemble your pizza. If you are using a premade cooked crust assemble and bake. Take the pesto and cover the crust top with fresh mozzarella and sliced tomatoes. Salt and pepper the tomatoes and bake just until the cheese is melted. Top with chopped fresh basil.
