Green Tomato and Roasted Garlic Pizza

 When we chat back and forth about which recipes to put onto the blog we are often brainstorming on how to use what we have.  I have green tomatoes and plenty of them.
What to do with green tomatoes that are ever so slowly ripening in my garage?
Green tomato pizza was a new idea to me but now it will be a regular appetizer during the late summer when the race begins to use all those green tomatoes in the garden.
My beloved enjoyed the recipe...
but wondered where the salami was.


  • pizza dough 
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 bulb garlic,  roasted
  • 1 1/2  cups grated Italian,  mozzarella blend cheese
  • 2 green tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  1. Use half of the pizza dough.  Place on a piece of parchment paper that had a smidge of olive oil on it. Flip dough over. Put another piece of parchment paper on top and press the dough with the heel of your hand until evenly 1/4 inch thick.  Let rise an hour.
  2. Bake the dough at 400 on the parchment paper and cookie sheet or pizza pan until firm but not yet browned .. .about 10 minutes. 
  3. Slice the top off a garlic bulb, drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over top and wrap in foil.  Bake at 350 until soft and caramel color, about an hour.
  4. Caramelize the onion with a drizzle of olive oil in a fry pan over medium heat until the onion turns a light caramel color.  Stir every few minutes.
  5. Squeeze out garlic onto baked pizza shell and spread evenly.
  6. Layer pizza toppings in this order... Italian blend, caramel apples, green tomatoes, parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake in top third of oven at 400 until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
