This easy appetizer recipe is perfect for any party or get together! With roasted tomatoes and ricotta cheese, this bruschetta recipe is a fun twist on a classic! When paired with Red Baron pizza, you’ve got a real party on your hands!
Something that involves competition, great (we hope) commercials, and food. Lots and lots of food.
Because let’s be honest, without food, the game part just isn’t the same. ?
And really, when it comes to pizza and easy apps like this roasted tomato and ricotta bruschetta, you’ve pretty much already won…at life.
I’m pretty sure it should be a life rule that pizza should be present at any and all football parties. Is it even possible to watch football and not enjoy every touchdown with a celebratory round of pizza (and not just any pizza–Red Baron, to be exact)? Probably. But, honestly, why take the chance?
And, while we’re on the subject, I think it’s safe to suggest that bruschetta be a mandatory football appetizer. As far as color schemes go, it’s on point with the pizza. It’s also Italian, so it matches geographically.
Obviously, with that logic, those points should be enough. On the off chance you’re still not convinced that bruschetta and Red Baron pizza belong together in a Pat-Benatar-We-Belong kind of way, I’m just going to leave these three things here:
It’s pretty, it tastes great, and I love them. #boom
This is what we call a touchdown of a meal. ?
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes red, yellow, and/or orange
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 loaf French bread large enough to get about 18-20 slices when cut
- olive oil for sprinkling
- pepper for sprinkling
- 1 cup Ricotta cheese
- 2 tsp basil dried
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Pour tomatoes in a foil-lined baking dish, and sprinkle with salt and olive oil. Roast for 35 minutes, or until tomatoes have burst and begun to shrink.
Place all slices of French bread on a large baking sheet. Drizzle each slice with a little bit of olive oil (about 1/4 tsp on each) and sprinkle each with a little bit of pepper (this is for flavoring and a little goes a long way). Allow to toast in the 400 degree oven for 3-4 minutes, or until the bread is just turning golden brown. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
Spread a bit of Ricotta cheese on each slice of bread. Top with a couple roasted tomatoes and sprinkle with dried basil.
And last but not least, what football party is complete without a dessert to cheer to the victory of a win or to wash down the regret of a loss?
Since we’re all about the pizza pie today, we’re also all about the dessert pie. Between this easy bruschetta recipe, the simple and delish Red Baron’s pizza, and Edwards eyeball-rolling-amazing dessert pies, everyone might be cheering your name at the end of the game instead of the winning team’s name.
It’s totally possible.
