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.
