sun dried tomato pizza w/ ketchup

sun dried tomato pizza w/ ketchup

Yep ketchup.

Do not click away. I wanted to grab your attention with that title.
Let me explain.
Judging from the overwhelming response I've gotten on the tomato pie AND the tomato & cheddar hand pies, I can clearly see there are a lot of tomato fans out there like me. You have good palettes.
And here is another tomato filled, tasty recipe. It's really quite simple you see, it's just two different kinds of tomato flavor on a pizza. But boy oh boy do they pair well on a pizza--very well. There could be some of you out there who have already had this combo, but for those of you who haven't you must try your next homemade pizza this way.
Had I known that a couple of friends were going to tell me to make a post of this pizza I would have taken shots of the ingredients like I always do. I didn't because to be honest I've made this pizza for years and never thought to share it with you. I know better--I should share everything--you're all foodies too. I'll do better at that.

But the ingredients are merely: good homemade pizza dough (I adore whole foods multi- grain pizza dough), ketchup used as the tomato sauce (a nice think layer), good mozzarella cheese, and some sun-dried tomatoes that are soaking in olive oil. Trust me, you will love it. And its easy peasy.

See those crispy, charred sun-dried tomato bits? HEAVENLY!

print recipe

1 pizza dough (whole foods multigrain pizza dough is amazing)
good quality ketchup (love whole foods organic brand)
a few handfuls sun dried tomatoes (that were sitting in olive oil), drained slightly
good quality mozzarella cheese
few dashes of red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste

preheat oven to 450/500 degrees. grease up a jelly roll pan.
spread out pizza dough
apply thin layer of ketchup, even the edges of the dough
apply the mozzarella
add on the sun dried tomato bits
add on the red pepper flakes (if desired), then the salt & pepper

bake for about 10-18 minutes until desired doneness is achieved
i like mine really crispy so i went to about the 17 minute mark.
let cool before slicing.

  16. Really? Don't get me wrong, I love ketchup. I drown my veggie burgers in it and put some extra on the side which I wipe up with my finger, but on pizza? Hm. Gotta give it a try!

  17. Your Scandinavian roots are showing through again, Dawn! Norwegians love putting ketchup on pizza! I will tell you what we do, which I think is also heavenly, and you should try - tomato paste instead of sauce - we use this all the time for homemade pizza and will never go back!

  23. You say "good mozzarella" - do you mean like fresh mozzarella? Would that get too moist? What kind do you use? I'd love to try this!

  27. This sounds wonderful. The ketchup would add some sweetness to the pizza which I would really go for. Your pics are mouthwatering! Trader Joe's has some great organic ketchup which we really like a lot! I am going to have to try this next time we are having pizza!

  28. I'm baking a pizza as we speak, and while I regret now that there is no ketchup on it, are there any rules about dipping??

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'll admit I'm hesitant about using ketchup as the sauce... but I've had a lot of luck with your recipes in the past, so I'll give it a go and let you know how it goes!
