one of my flavorites

Ahhh…I love summer. The sun, the pool days, and most of all the food. Today’s recipe comes from my sister who is visiting for a month to take some summer classes. I love when family comes to town :D. Anyway, if I were to have to take one food to a deserted island it would have to be pizza. The problem is that I am trying to diet by reducing the amount of carbs and calories I take in. So, when my sister said she wanted to make me a pizza I was a bit hesitant. I didn’t want to break what I started, but then I realized I was limiting food. BLAH! I want to taste EVERYTHING! Sure, I may get a little chubby, but everything is okay in moderation…right?

Ingredients:

5 tbs olive oil

1 medium tomato, sliced and quartered

1 tbs garlic (minced)

2 tbs rosemary

2 tbs thyme

2 tbs oregano

2 tbs parsley

2 tbs crushed red peppers

2 tbs basil

1 cup of cheese (we used a Mexican mix)

1 premade pizza crust (wheat if you can find it)

 

Method:

First slice the tomato and cut the slices into quarters. Place about two tbs of olive oil and mix with the garlic. Let the tomatoes quarters marinade in the mixture while preparing the crust. Preheat the oven to 425F. Drizzle the crust with about 3 tbs olive oil, then use a brush to spread it evenly. Cover the crush with cheese, then sprinkle the oregano, parsley, crushed red peppers, thyme, basil, and rosemary over the cheese evenly. Next spread the tomatoes on. You can drizzle the marinade over the pizza after the tomatoes are placed. Bake for about 10-15 mins, and then enjoy.

Notes:

This probably is one of the best and healthiest pizzas I have had. I would probably add some salt and pepper to taste, but other than that this is something that you need to try!
