Beautiful Heirloom Tomatoes

Last week, I bought some heirloom tomatoes and this was the second recipe I made with them. You can use any type of tomatoes, including cherry or grape tomato – just slice them thinly. When the tomatoes are lightly roasted in the oven, they taste sweeter and more delicious.

Spreading Pesto on Focaccia Pizza

First, spread some pesto as the pizza sauce on the focaccia bread or any pizza base you are using.

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese (Sliced)
Make thin slices of fresh mozzarella cheese (4 pieces of pizza quarters) to lay on top of the pesto sauce.

Heirloom Tomato Focaccia Pizza (Before Bake)
Top the pizza one layer with the sliced tomatoes. If there small spaces left, you can add small pieces of mozzarella cheese and dollops of pesto.

Bake in the oven until the cheese melts, then transfer to the broiler (top rack) for about 2-3 minutes to lightly roast the tomatoes for better flavour. Garnish with basil, pine nuts, chilli flakes, black pepper, tobasco sauce & olive oil (yes, I like full flavours on my pizza, especially a meatless one).

  1. What a great idea of using focaccia to make pizza! I like to use flatbread to make pizza and can’t wait to try your version, which looks phenomenal!

  2. Love quick and lazy pizza! The focaccia bread I see here are usually thicker than your thinner version here. I often use pita bread for my quick lazy pizza :p
