According to a news report from www.nashvillescene.com, “With the Tomato Art Festival pizza recipe contest fast approaching on Aug. 11, organizers are calling for recipes that celebrate the humble vegetable-or-is-it-fruit. Submit your favorite recipe for a pizza, along with its background story, to MyPizzaIsBest@hotmail.com. Entries will be posted at the Tomato Art Fest website for tomato-lovers to peruse.”
“The whackier the story, the better,” says Mary Beth Lasseter of the Southern Foodways Alliance, who is organizing the call for pizza recipes. “It just has to include tomatoes,” said the story.
