I watched my girlfriend Kim, queen of “easy breezy,” whip up this fresh and healthy pizza within 20 minutes the other night. The part that amazed me was how easy it was to make her tomato sauce from scratch. I never thought of simply sauteing cherry tomatoes until they become saucy and delicious.
Here’s what you need: cherry tomatoes, garlic, seasoning. That’s it!
- Cut the tomatoes in half.
- Chop or mince a clove of garlic.
- Throw in a pan with a little olive oil and season.
- Let cook for 15 – 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
You can use it for pizza or pasta.
Kim’s easy breezy version of the pizza uses rotisserie chicken, sauteed broccoli, and grated Parmesan cheese. She toasted a frozen pizza crust in the oven. Pre-pizza dough is another option.
When I made it, I roasted chicken breasts (skin on that I stuffed with herbs) and broccoli together. I sauteed down some kale to add into the sauce. I could have very easily put all of that on top of pasta, quinoa, or wheat fresh bread instead of pizza dough.
