After visiting my family in Chicago last week, I’m feeling homesick. Times like these, I like to cook something and eat my way to happiness…kidding, well kinda:) Of course, being a Chicagoan, I always crave something with cheese and bread involved. But, as my form fitting wedding dress stares at me from the closet, I’m thinking deep dish pizza is out of the question.
So I opted to make foe pizza bites. My sister shared the recipe and it is a winner. I’ll admit nothing can ever really replace the taste of pizza, but these definitely helped satisfy my craving. Pesto Beefsteak tomatoes, yeah you heard me! Beefsteak tomatoes are were it’s at; these reds definitely live up to their name.
Here’s what you need:
* 4 Beefsteak Tomatoes
* Pesto Sauce (check out Jackie’s post to make your own)
* Parmesan Cheese
* Olive Oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the beefsteak tomatoes in thick slices, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a healthy dose of oregano, salt and pepper all over the slices.
Place in the oven for 5 minutes…Remove from the oven and spread the pesto sauce on each tomato – about a tablespoon or however much it takes to coat the slice. Then sprinkle a healthy dose of parmesan cheese on top.
Place back in the oven for 5 minutes, remove and serve pippin’ hot!
