Pizza Verde

Published on: Sep 06 2012 by WhiskeyBeard

This pizza is fresh, quick and loaded with flavor. Grab all the green stuff from your garden and get to chopping!

Ingredients:
1-2 Green Tomatoes
2 Long Hot Peppers
3 Cloves of Garlic
1/2 Large Onion
1/4 lb Mozzarella Cheese
15 Basil Leaves
1/2 – 1 tbsp of Olive Oil
Pizza Shell of your choosing (I like mine as thin as possible!)

 

 

 

 

Directions: 

Preheat your oven as directed with your pizza shell. Spread the olive oil over the shell and then top with 3/4 of the mozzarella. Set to the side until ready.

For the Veggies:

  • Slice your green tomatoes into half moons.
  • Slice the peppers into rings.
  • Slice the onion into slivers.
  • Crush and mince your garlic.
  • Roll your basil up and slice as thin as possible.
  • If using sliced mozzarella, slice into thin strips.

Now layer your pizza: first with half of the garlic, tomatoes, onion, basil, remaining garlic and cheese. Pop it in the oven for about 10 minutes and voila! A fresh tasty pizza in no time. The green tomatoes are a little firmer and more acidic than their red elders. This adds a little bite, texturally and flavor wise, to the pizza. It’s a crisp, fresh slice of garlicky, cheesy heaven that goes down smooth with a good beer. Pizza and beer will have never tasted so good!
