    I do love pizza. Do you? More and more I find myself trying to come up with unique and tasty pizza creations, yet I always come to back to the basics with a tomato pie.

    Tomato Pesto Pie uses three different types of tomatoes, along with two cheeses, fresh spinach, toasted pine nuts and a cool pesto finish.

    For the crust, make your own or opt for a premade store bought version. I personally love Stonefire flatbreads. They are packaged with the intention to be frozen, so I can buy a handful, freeze them and use them for a quick, weeknight meal.

    If I’m using a fresh dough, having a pizza stone is a must! I also find having a bread peel to be very useful. If you don’t, you can always use a flat baking sheet or flip over a rimmed sheet pan. Clearly, fresh dough won’t do so well when placed directly onto the rack.

    Also, using a low moisture mozzarella will prevent excess water making your crust soggy, but still make your pizza super cheesy!

    These same toppings can be used for calzones, French bread pizzas or even on pasta. Three types of tomatoes and several greens really make a mouthwatering flavor bomb.
