Kumato and Heirloom Tomato Pizza, delicious you will love it!

I love fresh pizza and even more when using seasonal ingredients from the farmers market. And today I am preparing fresh Kumato and Heirloom Tomato Pizza with basil and olive oil asiago cheese from Sartori a family business with a lot of tradition and history. This time of the year it is very easy to find many kinds of tomatoes, I particularly like those called heirloom and Kumato tomatoes.  This Sartori gourmet cheese that I won on a social media giveaway conducted few months ago goes perfect with the fresh tomatoes I chose for making this pizza. But you might be wondering what are kumatos and heirloom tomatoes. Heirloom tomatoes are a very special kind of produce. These tomatoes  have been passed down through several generations and come from very special breed of seeds and are very flavorful not like the standard tomatoes found in the market year round. Kumato tomatoes are considered the king of the tomato, the flavor is sweet and very intense. These tomatoes come from Spain where this kind of tomatoes are harvested. The color of this tomatoes goes from deep red and green to purple. And the flavor bursts in your mouth, if you like tomatoes these two types are a must try and even more when you prepare Kumato and Heirloom Tomato Pizza at home.

    What a great pizza! Hands down those Kumato are my fave. I have to still try your aged cheese. But the sounds of the mix with your serving mix really feels like a fabulous flavor explosion to discover.

    This looks so amazing! I have seen Kumato tomatoes at the grocery, but I have to confess I have never tried them. I was a bit put off by the color, but they look just beautiful against the baked crust in your photos. Great Post!
