I'm no Tony Bourdain but I do consider myself an adventurous eater.
I've done some traveling in my time.
I've eaten giraffe in Kenya, an unkown street food in Malaysia, and maybe even more daring... beef tongue. (The thought of french kissing a cow crossed my mind more than once but I got it down and chased it with vodka like any good Russian would do. Consequently - I was in a Russian resaurant at the time - in Baltimore.)
All that said, I don't like to mess too much with my pizza.
Most definitely NO fruit (sorry you ham & pineapple crazies).
So the thought of putting Bumble Bee tuna on a pizza was definitely a challenging one for me.
The fact is, I'm a big baby.
Because not only is this recipe REALLY EASY, it's REALLY GOOD and made me feel like a real gourmet!
Mediterranean Tuna Pizza
Buy or make a pizza crust. I have done both and my theory is - some people are just not good at making their own pizza crust.
Then top with the following ingredients:
1 can of Bumble Bee Tonno in Oil
1-2 strips of Prosciutto torn into smaller pieces
fresh tomato slices
Brush the pizza crust with olive oil and spread the toppings evenly across reserving the mozzarella cheese for last. You can add red pepper flakes too.
Place into over and follow pizza crust baking instructions - but usually it's about 10-15 minutes.
Mine looked like this
and it was truly delicious! Everyone had a slice if not two.
So yes, you CAN have tuna on pizza as well as on a few other surprising things.
