ISO - Non-Tomato Based Pizzas

It does have it's place, I've been making them for years as I have a nephew who is severely allergic to tomatoes. He was always left out of pizza parties, because of this allergy.

His first, for Jon Patrick, pizza was a Chicken and Garlic Alfredo with steamed Broccoli...the best because his Aunt Fiona made it just for him.

What else can we put on a pizza that is NOT tomato-based?

Ah, good! I think something I said in a recent post might have encouraged this topic. It's not that I don't like tomato recipes as much as that I think tomato-only pizza is too limiting. Sometimes I want tomato and sometimes I don't. Let's satisfy the "don't want tomato" pizza craving.

Does anybody have a non-tomato Thai pizza suggestion? (Never mind that Thai and pizza don't go together at all. Think "fusion"...)

Greg,
What about using peanut sauce instead of pizza sauce and topping the pizza with shrimp, green onions, shredded carrot and shredded bell peppers? These are things I put in my Thai Salad Rolls that are then dipped in my killer peanut sauce.

My absolute favorite non-tomato pizza is caramelized balsamic onions, goat cheese crumbles, and walnuts. When it comes out of the oven, drizzle a little good quality EVOO over the whole thing. No sauce. No meat.

My wife and I have this about twice a month and never get tired of it.

Bruschetta, Foccacia...love to use these as a base for "pizza."

I like bruschetta topped with typical anitpasto and shavings of peccorino-romano. And yes, even some chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Okay, now I have to go raid the fridge.

You've got to be kidding on the Hatch's chiles. The only ones available here are the ones I have sent from Denver each fall.
