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!

apply the mozzarella
add on the sun dried tomato bits
add on the red pepper flakes (if desired), then the salt & pepper

i like mine really crispy so i went to about the 17 minute mark.
let cool before slicing.
