Summer-sweet heirloom tomatoes are the star of this recipe, complemented by mild and tangy goat cheese atop a crispy char-grilled pizza crust. If heirlooms are out of season, substitute just about any tomato.
Heirloom tomatoes are remarkably flavorful and colorful compared with their grocery store counterparts. They vary from red to orange, gold, taxi yellow, nearly white, pink, purplish black, and green. Some are even multicolored, such as Mr. Stripey, which we used here. Your choice of tomato will shine in this simple pizza.
