Take-out Tuesday, Fresh Garden Tomato & Basil Flatbread

Even though I am not much of a gardener, I can manage fresh herbs like basil and rosemary, and HHjr loves to plant cherry tomatoes and peppers

We have a bountiful crop this year and so let’s roast them and make a sophisticated version of a traditional tomato sauce and cheese pizza

First season the tomatoes well with Italian seasoning, salt & pepper

Next give them a healthy drizzle of olive oil and roll them around to coat

Pre-bake the crust until it just starts to turn golden and firm,

about 8 minutes

Roast the tomatoes at 400 degrees 15-20 minutes,

until they have softened and burst open

Carefully lift the corners of the parchment paper and transfer the tomatoes and all that luscious juice onto the baked flatbread crust

Spread this goodness all over the crust

Sprinkle with Everything Seasoning

It’s easy to make your own, see recipe here

Now top with grated white cheddar and shaved Parmesan

Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until cheese has throughly melted

Garnish with fresh basil
