Tomatoes & Basil

Do you know how much I love tomatoes and basil?  Either together or separately.


This is tomatoes, olive oil, basil and garlic to be roasted for a pizza.  Only problem is, when it comes out of the oven, it’s so good to spread it on crusty bread, with a little parmesan cheese . . yum!


A little bit of it made it to the pizza.  It’s pretty hard to eat pizza out after having homemade.  But, really . . who needs pizza when there’s basil, tomatoes and garlic all roasted together?

    Oh yeah! I have hubby completely spoiled with homemade pizza. We did this the other night, added red and green peppers and I had caramelized some sweet onions to add to the pizza.
    Again, I thank you for showing me the way. 😉

    Oh and more good new–another UFO bites the dust. YeeHaw

      Have you tried pizza on the grill? It’s just great. Once I started making it I never want to order out either!

    Looks so yummy. Would you mind sharing how long you roast them and at what temp? How about your pizza crust recipe – or is it already on here somewhere and I missed it? thanks Judy for sharing both quilts and recipes. I love both and have made several of your dishes and your quilt patterns!

    Yeah but youse guys haven’t had NY pizza. Nobody makes it right outside of NY! Same with bagels and really good Italian bread-that’s got to come from Jerome Ave in the Bronx.
