Pizza with colorful tomatoes

If you get the chance of buying red, yellow and green tomatoes then you can make a beautiful looking tomato pizza. And what goes well with tomatoes? Mozzarella cheese and some fresh basil. And a little bit of finely sliced garlic is so good.



Pizza dough

  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 500 g flour
  • 300 ml Luke warm water
  • Pinch of salt

Let the yeast foam in a 100 ml of warm water with the sugar. It takes about 5 minutes. I do this in the kitchen aid bowl.

Add the rest of the water, salt and flour to the yeast mix.

Let your machine work on it for a bit, or knead with hands, I find the less I knead with hands the softer the dough becomes.

Seal the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubles. (I used a double recipe so got LOTS of dough, but good thing about pizza dough is you can keep it in the fridge for few days and it just gets better and next time I will give you some ideas of what you could do with a pizza dough).

Add a little more flour to knead it down and then flatten out to make pizza.

Top it with some crushed canned tomatoes or a nice pizza sauce, the tomatoes, sliced garlic and cheese. Bake to perfection.

When ready garnish with fresh basil and even some arugula salad, that is soooo good.
