This is one of the most simple, easy appetizers to prepare. Use it as an appetizer or serve as a pizza, everyone loves the taste!
- 12 inches boboli thin pizza crust
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 8 ounces Fontina cheese, grated
- 1 cup leeks or 1 cup white onion, sliced thinly
- 2 roma tomatoes, chopped (about 1 cup)
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- kosher salt, to taste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon freshly cracked black peppercorns
- Preheat oven to 450° degrees F.
- Place crust on large pizza pan or baking sheet. Spread olive oil evenly over pizza crust, add the grated Fontina cheese. Arrange leeks or onions atop the cheese. Add the chopped tomatoes and thyme. Season with salt to taste and add the pepper.
- Bake pizza until crust is golden and cheese melts, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in pan for 5 minutes. Cut into triangles or squares or diamonds or wedges and serve.
Very nice change from the usual pizza, & WE LOVED IT! The only thing I'd change another time is to make my own pizza crust, BUT for ease in preparation, this recipe works great! I did use both a cup of thinly sliced leeks as well as about 1/3 cup of sliced onion, with everything else as called for in the recipe! Want to keep hold of this one!

We made Recipe #301235 and Recipe #230721 to add some more zing to this dish. We also topped it with a light sprinkling of shredded mozzerella cheese. This made a very nice and light snack for us. The fresh tomatoes compliment this dish well compared to a pasta sauce which can make for a heavier pizza. Thanks for posting.
This made a tasty main dish meal for me even with an appetizer serving. I used white onions since thats what I had on hand, but other than that I made as writen with great results. This makes a great change from the normal tomato sauce based pizza!
