This week has been crazy busy. Between trying to juggle play dates, packing for trips and upcoming work due dates, dinner time has consisted of top ramen and corn dogs. It finally came to a point where even my kids were begging for something that didn’t come from the microwave. We were craving pizza, but the healthy kind. This Heirloom Tomato Pizza is truly the best kind of pizza for a hot summer day!
Heirloom tomatoes are one of the things I love most about summer. Their colors and beauty turn every dish into something magical, and their flavor has been kissed by the sun. When combined with simple fresh ingredients such as basil and ricotta this pizza will knock your socks off!
If you have the right kitchen appliances (i.e. something with a dough hook) fresh pizza dough can be made and in the oven in a matter of 45 minutes. With only about 10 minutes of that being actual hands on labor. Then, simply mix the ricotta with some garlic and fresh herbs, slice and arrange the tomatoes, and voila the perfect summer meal or appetizer!
