Thai Tuna and Tomato Pizza

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by flower7

I recently had a coupon for some flavored tunas and created this to use one of them. It sounds a little crazy but I thought the combo was really good! If you don't want to use the Pillsbury crust, you could make your own or use another kind of pre-made crust, just adjust baking times and temperatures accordingly.

Tuna pizza is HUGE in Sicily (or WAS when I lived there 10 years ago, food trends and all) and for this recipe, I omitted the Thai chili-tuna, and went with tradition- adding red onions. As always, the better ingredients make the best result, but forgo the fresh tuna impulse you may have and instead, stop with jarred in oil.
