Wonderful recipe using tomatoes. I made this last night and everyone wanted to know when I was going to make it again. It is crossed between a tart and pizza. My younger son really liked it because he is a vegetarian. But you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this. The red pepper flakes and seasonings really made this recipe pop.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe is a very tasty way to enjoy the bounty of your garden. I haven’t met a tomato that I didn’t love... and this recipe really seals the deal!


3 Tbsp
mustard or mayonnaise (i used mustard)
4 large
tomatoes, sliced
1/2 tsp
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/4 tsp
each of: basil, parsley, oragno. (combine together)
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes or more if like it with a hot flavor.
2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded
pillsbury pie crust for bottom

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a tart pan insert your pillsbury dough in the bottom and around sides. (do not overlap). I usually brush egg white on the crust. Par bake the crust and let cool completely. Spread 3 tablespoons mustard or mayonnaise only on the bottom of crust. Slice tomatoes and cover the entire bottom of crust. (if you want to make extra layer you can). Scatter your garlic and salt on top of tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle your dried herbs combined together on top and your pepper flakes evenly distributed. If you want more of a hot taste add more pepper flakes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese on top and sprinkle parsley on top for color. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees until bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving and slice wedges with a pizza cutter. Enjoy....delicious.

Robert, it means to partially bake it. You don't want it raw because it will end up soggy, but you don't want it 100% baked or it will be too done in then end.
Hope that helps.
I've made it a few times and ~really~ like it.

Pardon for the silly question, when you say to parbake the crust, what exactly does that mean?

I see I never gave you feedback on this dish. It was delish, and I've made it twice once last year and once so far this year.
I'm not cooking a whole lot right now, because I'm packing some more since I'm moving to Arroyo Hondo, NM on the 14th of July.
Thanks so much for posting this one!
