Number of Servings: 5


    1 Pizza Crust
    1/2 lb Tomatoes (Med 3)
    5 lg leaves fresh basil
    1 Garlic clove
    1/8 Tsp salt
    2 Tb Capers
    2 tsp dried Oregano, crushed
    Several grinds black pepper
    2 Tb Pine nuts


Pre-made pizza crust placed on a round pizza pan with a little corn meal. Preheat oven 450.
Put tomatoes (do not peel), basil, salt, garlic in food processor. Spread the sauce over the crust, leaving a 1inch border free of sauce, then top the sauce evenly with the capers, oregano, and pepper. Transfer pizza to pre-heated oven and cook for 10 mins. Until the crust is golden and the sauce is sizzling.
Meanwhile, place the pine nuts in a dry, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Stir or shake them around frequently, until they begin to turn golden brown. Immediately remove them from pan and chop coarsely. When the pizza is cooked, distribute the toasted pine nuts evenly over the top and serve hot or at room temp.
