  • 3 large tomatoes Sliced into 4 thick slices per tomato
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • Fresh chopped basil for garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400F and slice each tomato into 4 thick slices.
  • Add the sliced tomatoes to a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl add the cheese and Italian seasoning. Mix together.
  • Top each tomato with a tablespoon of chopped onions and the cheese mixture
  • Bake on 400 for 10 minutes. Broil the last minute or two but make sure to keep an eye on them so they don't burn.


Storage: These are best eaten hot out of the oven. If you store them in the refrigerator, the tomatoes will get soggy, so it's best to make them fresh each time.
Dairy-Free: If you're dairy free, opt for dairy-free shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese! So many grocery stores carry these options, including Trader Joe's!
Serving: Serve these pizza tomatoes at a gathering, as an appetizer, or eat a couple of servings as a full meal. The calories and carbs are low and this is the perfect healthy-ish snack or entree!
Equipment: I loved using these baking sheets and I line them with parchment paper for easy cleanup, and so the tomatoes don't stick!
