Greek Bruschetta Pizza

I cook a lot.  When you cook as much as I do you have to search for deals at the grocery store otherwise I would totally blow my food budget.  I have a beautiful grocery store close to my house and I only shop there for their deals. I scour their weekly ads and zone in on all the by one get free offers, the buy 2 get three free offers and sale items.  In the recent months I noticed that had a large shelf in the middle of the produce section.  It's for reduced for quick sale produce.  Now I don't usually buy stuff like this, but they must have a high standard of what they think is "ripe". I can buy a bag of 2-3 large eggplants or 6 zucchini for $1.  They even put the organic fruits and veggies for a $1.  The other day I noticed 4-5 bags (about 3lb each) full of organic roma tomatoes.  I grabbed a few bags fast... organic tomatoes for 33cents a pound... unheard of!  So now I have my stash of tomatoes that I need to use up.   I created this Greek Bruschetta Pizza since I had bought feta cheese at on sale as well.  I made these for my husband and I for lunch one day and he loved them.  I can't wait to go and check out my discount rack at the grocery store again.

PS... get ready for a lot of tomato recipes. :)

3-4 Roma tomatoes diced small (remove seeds)
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup black pitted olives
1-2 green chilies (seeded) minced
1/4 cup red onion finely diced
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and black pepper to taste

Naan Bread
2 Tbs butter  (as needed)
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Prepare Bruschetta ingredients and season to taste.  Next mix the butter and granulated garlic.  Spread it on both sides of the naan bread and place on a griddle.  Toast both sides of naan until crispy.  Top with bruschetta toppings. Serve in slices.  Enjoy.
