Pizza Neapolitan from 1935
“…A noted chef calls these little pastries Pizza Neapolitan.
If he didn’t invent them, at least he introduced them to
Manhattan and when you taste them, you’ll be glad he did…”
1 large onion
2 tbsp butter
1 medium tomato
2 tbsp minced mushrooms
1 tbsp grated Swiss cheese
1/4 tsp powdered mixed herbs**
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
rich uncooked pie crust
If you don’t have mixed herbs, use a smidge of powdered sage
with celery pepper and parsley pepper.
Mince onion and cook slowly in butter until tender.
Peel tomato and remove seeds. Cut flesh into dice and add with mushrooms to onion.
Cook 5-minutes and cool.
Beat egg until light and add to first mixture with cheese and seasonings.
