Green Tomato Margherita Pizza

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.

You’ll need:

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.
