Baked Tomato Parmesan

Makes 2 servings


  • 1 large tomato
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp. parmesan cheese
  • Dash of Kosher or sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh or dried oregano and basil , about 1/4 tsp
  • 2-3 tbsp. tomato sauce, homemade or store bought, use a good quality for best taste
  • 1 tsp pine nuts, divided



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Rinse tomato and dry completely. Slice in half. Make a very small slice on the bottom of each tomato so they can sit without
    rolling over.
  3. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and spices. Spoon on the tomato sauce then top with both cheeses.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet that is lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
  5. Bake for about 15- 20 minutes until the cheeses are melted but not burnt and the tomato has softened.
  6. Add pine nuts on top of tomato the last 5 minutes of baking.
