Green tomatoes! A CSA box first for us. Oh, yes, they will be fried. But before I got around to that, this happened. We were making a quick pizza dinner the other night and as I pulled the cheese out of the fridge, I pondered “…hey…do you think you can make margherita pizza with green tomatoes?” My husband crinkled his brows and said “I don’t know, maybe…probably?”
Answer: Yes! And it’s quite tasty. It is a great way to eat green tomatoes that doesn’t require deep frying! The tomatoes add a tart, crispy topping to a traditional pizza.
A pizza crust of your choosing
1 c (approx) prepared marinara sauce
8 oz shredded mozzarella
1 or 2 green tomatoes, sliced very thin
1/4 c fresh basil, torn into small pieces
Top your pizza crust with the sauce, mozzarella, and green tomatoes. Bake at 425 13-15 minutes, or according to the directions for your crust. Remove from the oven, sprinkle on the fresh basil.
Lovely! I am jealous of your green tomatoes. Hopefully we’ll have some coming our way soon.
Yum! I have never had green tomatoes…but this looks like a good reason to give them a try. Thanks for sharing 🙂
I would love for you to come and link up on my link party…http://inherchucks.com/2012/05/24/whats-in-the-box-27/. Looking forward to seeing you there 🙂
I took inspiration from your pizza and put thin sliced green tomatoes on a CSA pesto pizza with fresh mozzarella. Dang! Tangy and awesome.
