This creates a moist, but not wet, bread with an intense banana flavor. Makes 30 slices of 1/4 inch each. If you cut yours thicker, nutritional facts will need to be adjusted accordingly.
Use only large, round tomatoes here, not Roma or cherry varieties, and use the ripest in-season tomatoes you can find. Real Greek or Dodoni Feta is best in this recipe.

Recipe makes dough for 2 pizzas. If you only want to make 1 pizza, you can freeze the remaining dough by forming it into a ball, rub olive oil all over it, and put it in a freezer bag and into the freezer. The oil makes it easier to remove it from the bag. Allow it to thaw before using.
This is essentially an easy garlic Alfredo sauce.
