Sunday Supper, Cheesy Tomato Basil Flatbread

We’ve been having a great time on the coast this past week,

boating, swimming and playing

4th of July fun with friends

The other day I told HHjr that instead cooking that night

we should have a “clean out the fridge” dinner

“We have a lot of BBQ ribs leftover from our 4th of July cookout” I said

“and we have salad stuff and zucchini and squash that I can roast~

and plus, there’s a tomato flatbread I’m dying to make!”

This is one of those “drop what you’re doing and make this now” recipes

Seriously, it’s that good!

Start by slicing tomatoes and putting the slices on paper towels to drain

Bake the crescent roll sheet until it is set and beginning to turn golden

The topping is made with mayonnaise, mozzarella cheese,

garlic, Parmesan and fresh basil

mix it together

Put a layer of mozzarella on the partially baked crust

and top with drained tomato slices

There were a few cherry tomatoes leftover from Taco night

so I added those too

Place large spoonfuls of topping mixture on top of tomatoes

Spread it out into an even layer

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-14 minutes or until set and bubbly

This recipe is adapted from The Kitchen is my Playground

    Jenna, that looks so delicious. Like Nancy said, I need to make this! Happy Sunday!

  4. Yum, very similar to my tomato pie recipe that also uses mayo and Parm. I like the crescent roll crust idea!

  5. Kitty says:

    That looks so good, Jenna, as I’m waiting for my flight to go to Colorado. I made a tomato tart last night which is somewhat similar but uses pie crust and no Mayo. It’s so good! Enjoy your week! 🌞

  6. I love Clean Out the Fridge Night! And that tomato flatbread looks just fabulous. I think I need to add this to the summer repertoire!

  7. Rita C. says:

    Wow, that sounds and looks so GOOD!

  8. Rita C. says:

    Oh, and we always called that leftover dinner CURD – clean up the refrigerator day. Yours sounds better, I must admit. LOL

    Oh that sounds so good Jenna! We’re still waiting for heirloom tomatoes to ripen. Glad you’re enjoying your beach time. Love seeing the kids wearing their glow-in-the-dark and light up attire. 🙂
