Pizza, Green Tomato (D)
Source: Better Homes and Gardens
Serves: 6

1/2 16-ounce loaf frozen bread dough, thawed, or your own pizza dough
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 6-ounce package shredded pizza cheese
2 medium green tomatoes, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon slivered fresh basil or snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried basil or thyme, crushed
Cornmeal (optional)

Grease a 12" pizza pan. If desired, sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll bread dough, if using, to a 13" circle. Transfer dough to prepared pan. (Or, pat pizza dough into prepared pan.) Build up edges slightly. Set aside.

Cook onion, covered, in a small amount of boiling water in a small saucepan for 5 minutes or until just tender. Drain well.

Sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over the pizza dough. Arrange onion and tomato slices over cheese. Sprinkle olives, garlic, and pepper over tomatoes. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over all.

Bake in a 425°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle basil or thyme over pizza. Serve warm.
