An Italian friend of mine scoffed at the notion of using tomatoes as a pizza topping (unless they are cherry tomatoes and added at the end, in the manner of basil and arugula). Maybe it's a Venetian bias, or the addition of tomatoes as a cooked topping is truly a foreign abomination, but either way it seems controversial. So where do you stand on tomatoes as a topping?
