Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 F degree.

Spread the pesto equally over each prepared personal sized pizza shell. You can make the pizza crust fresh or use prepared pizza dough.

Top the layer of pesto with ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Top with the oven-dried heirloom tomatoes.

Place the mushroom slices, bell pepper slices and red onion slices over the heirloom tomatoes.

Sprinkle reserved ¼ cup of the cheese on top.

Bake until the shell is golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 12 minutes.

Cool slightly and serve warm.

How to oven-dry the heirloom tomatoes:

Slice the tomatoes into ¼ to ½-inch thick slices.

Line the slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Season with a little bit salt, black pepper and freshly chopped thymes if needed.

Roast in a 200 degrees F oven for about 3 to 4 hours, depending on how dry you want.

Use them to make pizza, pie, or toss with salad, pasta.

If you don't use them right away, you can put them into a zip-lock bag, and freeze for up to several months.
