Summer Tomato & Brie Pizza

tomato and brie pizzaSometimes the very best-tasting recipes are the easiest, too. That's why I love this one from Real Simple for Tomato and Brie Pizza. It calls for only a few ingredients including soft brie cheese, which tends to be more rich, creamy, and pungent than the traditional mozzarella pizza topping. Plus, it's a great use for the abundance of summer tomatoes. I like to add a bit of pesto sauce for bright and fresh herby flavor, but a drizzle of good olive oil works just as well.
