Okra and tomato pizza

We had some leftover okra and tomatoes in the freezer and decided that it should make a good pizza topping. So on Friday I made a crust, sauteed some mushrooms and a leftover half an onion from the fridge, and used the okra and tomatoes as a sauce for the two pizzas.

The okra are the green bits in the sauce. Click to neapolinate.

They were delicious! I think this is the first time I've had okra on a pizza. It probably won't be the last.


  1. I neapolinated the picture and it looked even more okralicious !!

    I hope Ken has a nice time in North Carolina. I bet the time will pass very quickly for you, with all that to do in his absence - that's what I usually find when Nick is away - I have loads of things planned but the job of just running the house and routine stuff takes all my time.

  2. I am getting worried about what Ken will eat when he visits the US, given the standard of his home meals.

  3. OK, okra in the pizza sauce is really clever. I would't have thought of that. Sounds like it was a nice new twist.

  4. That just looks delicious... thank gord Pauline is cooking as I type!

  5. So much to do. You'll be worn out by the time he gets back.

  6. jean, okralicious! Love it!

    andrew, don't worry. He'll have hamburgers and lots of seafood.

    diogenes, it was very good!

    tim, yum.

    starman, I know!

  7. This looks extremely yummy. I absolutely love pizza, so this one is just perfect for me. Thanks for sharing it with us. I’m definitely going to make an okra pizza.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
