Late-Summer Green Tomato Pizza

Last week, my friend Alice had us over for a casual night of pizza and movies. Earlier in the day, she had gone to Bari and loaded up on antipasti--the green olives stuffed with anchovies were a revelation! We noshed on prosciutto and Asiago cheese and sipped sherry and dreamed up toppings for pizza. I suggested we try a green tomato and manchego cheese pizza I had seen on Mark Bittmann's blog. Luckily, Alice had a few tomatoes left from her garden. What a simple, but delicious pie! We left out the sage, but didn't miss it. The tomatoes were soft and sweet, with just enough acid to bite through the fat in the cheese. Lovely.
