Tomato Salad Pizza

When I was growing up my Dad had a huge garden. There was a  different tomato salad at every meal.

I am not complaining because every salad was delicious.

This pizza is just using the leftover salad.

Two boxes of grape tomatoes

One teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

One teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon black or red pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

One chopped onion is optional

Mix everything together

This can be served as is with any meal but I am saving it for the pizza.

One pound pizza dough

Crisco for the pan

1/2 pound mozzarella cheese

4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Put a thin layer of Crisco on the bottom of the pizza pan

Spread out one pound of dough in the pan

Add the tomato salad and spread the oil evenly on the dough

Make the tomatoes look pretty.

Try to line them up so you get a tomato with every bite

Sprinkle with the grated cheese then the mozzarella

Bake on the bottom shelf at 450 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Check to see when the bottom crust gets brown.

This pizza goes with everything.

I usually top it with fresh basil but I didn’t have any.

Put anything that goes with a tomato on top of this pie.

I have also cut the tomatoes in half  when I need to make more pizzas. I actually like it better because the juice of the tomatoes bakes into the dough.
