Sun Dried Tomato Pizza

I love adding sun dried tomato to pasta, but why not add it to a pizza? This Sun Dried Tomato Pizza brings together the dynamic taste of sun dried tomato, feta cheese, mozzarella and sun dried tomato pesto. The recipe can easily adapt to a personal pizza or a larger one.


You can use any type of feta. I love sun dried tomato feta and added that. Feel free to adjust the amount of sun dried tomato ingredients to fit your preferences. To scale down the sun dried tomato, you can use regular feta or traditional pizza sauce.



Personal pizzas make pizza night so much easier (and stress free) when everyone in the family likes something different.


Pizza is also an easy meal to take with you. Harvest is coming up quick and has started in some area. This means a lot of time spent in a combine or tractor and not much time spent eating meals at the kitchen table. Corn silage is pretty much finished here in Indiana, but is still underway in Western Washington. Cows love corn silage and it is a good source of energy for them in their diets. More about the corn silage process here.
