This is the easiest of easy recipes around.
Sometimes when things get super busy, you need a quick and effortless meal that can fill you up and still taste great. Frozen pizzas are quick and require next to zero effort. But who wants plain old frozen pizza? Why not make it your own and add extra flavor with fresh toppings? Adding your own toppings takes pizza to a whole other level. That’s how you get people to ask, “Is that delivery?” “No it’s…” you know.
The most effort you will have to make is the decision on which frozen pizza to buy. I don’t buy frozen pizza too often but when I do I know that I don’t like CPK pizza or the usual store brand pizza. They are usually too salty and soggy for me. I also don’t like spending more that $7 on a frozen pizza. When they start costing $10 or more, I figure I might as well order out. Me, I like a good DiGiorno or Freschetta (especially when they are on sale). You can save money by getting plain cheese pizza and adding your own toppings at home.
This recipe is is another meal I made with my boss’ ridiculously large and juicy tomatoes from her garden. Check out my other heirloom tomato recipe: tomato tarts.
Heirloom Tomato Pizza
- 1 frozen pizza (I used 4-cheese DiGiorno)
- 1 ripe heirloom tomato
- Fresh herbs – I used fresh thyme because that’s what I had on hand but basil will be delicious as well!
Heat the oven according to the pizza box instructions. Remove the pizza from the packaging. Slice your tomato and lay the pieces on the pizza, along with the fresh herbs.
Bake according to the instructions on the box. I always bake the pizza directly on the oven rack – so that it gets nice and crispy.
While it bakes, go other things because you will have a ton of extra time!
