Tomato pizza: a simple, savoury choice

Cold or hot?

Pizza lovers know that leftover pizza is often as delicious served fridge-cold as when it’s oven-warmed. Tomato pizza, it might surprise you to know, is sometimes served cold in restaurants, on purpose.

The fact that you don’t need to have access to a conventional oven or a microwave oven to enjoy tomato pizza makes it an ideal dish for lunch boxes.

A spicy touch

Several spices can be mixed in with the tomatoes, but the most often used is basil. This fragrant herb blends well with tomatoes in many recipes, and the combination makes no exception where tomato pizza is concerned.

Extra toppings

Whether it is preserved or dried, the tomato is, without a doubt, the key element in pizza. Would you like to add some pep?Use tomatoes as a base, then add bacon, pesto, olives, cheese, or any other ingredient of your choice. The result will be a custom-made tomato pizza just for you.

Marinara or margherita?

These are the two most popular tomato pizza options.

  • Marinara pizza: tomato, garlic, oregano and olive oil.
  • Margherita pizza: tomato, mozzarella, Parmesan, olive oil and basil leaves.

According to a survey of pizza lovers across the planet, the best tomato pizza is served in Rome—not surprising, given that Italy is the birthplace of the dish. Yet, there’s no need to catch the next flight to Europe: the ultimate in tomato pizzas can be found right here, in the best pizzerias or your kitchen.
