Loaded with flavor this Thin Crust Caprese Pizza combines Basil, Mozzarella, and Sauteed tomatoes with a Tangy Aioli as the sauce.
I love sauteed cherry tomatoes especially when cheese is involved. Cherry tomatoes, some type of cheese and fresh herbs on bread is my go-to snack. I just love all the flavors together. I can never turn down a Caprese Salad.
With a few pounds to shed I am trying to cut out carbs. Then I was introduced to Flatout Pizza Crusts. Total Game Changer! This basically means I can eat pizza every single day. You can find them around your bakery/deli section of the grocery store. This crust crisps up perfectly in the oven then I load it up with all kinds of combinations.
So today I was craving my favorite opened faced sandwich and that is where the inspiration behind this pizza came from. It turned out fantastic and didn’t miss the whole baguette the sandwich was normally served on. Now I want to turn all my favorite sandwiches into pizza. New hobby? Blog post series? Maybe.
This thin crust Caprese pizza serves 2 people but if you are really hungry I say GO FOR IT!
The veggies and herbs tossed in the red wine vinegar really sets off an amazing flavor to the classic Caprese.
You won’t miss the pizza sauce with the tangy aioli spread. However if you have to have pizza sauce then swap out the two. You may not want to spread all of the aioli on the crust. It does make a lot. You can refrigerate the leftover aioli and save it for a sandwich later on in the week.
This recipe is why I need to grow cherry tomatoes and basil this Summer.
