Another Meatless Monday? How about an Arugula Kumato Mushroom Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust?

on April 16, 2012

I know before you read on, you are asking “What is a Kumato???”  Good question 🙂 For those who haven’t heard of a kumato, it is a “brown” tomato typically grown in Spain.  They look like they aren’t ripe yet, when in fact they are ripe and sweeter than a regular tomato (due to the higher sugar content).  They have thicker skins than regular tomatoes which allow them to have a longer shelf life too.  I got mine at Trader Joe’s….check them out…

Ok, so now that we all know what these yummy, sweet kumato tomatoes are….put them with spicy arugula and sliced portabella mushrooms and you get one heavenly pizza 🙂

Let’s start cooking…. Place in a pan with 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil (or oil of your choice), saute’ until the veggies soften.

I take whole wheat pizza crust (from Trader Joe’s), roll it out onto a pan.  Place sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese on top.  Lastly, place all the veggies on top of the cheese and sauce.  Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.  YUMMY!!!  Enjoy this new twist on healthy pizza 🙂
