How to use fresh tomatoes on pizza without turning out a soggy pie? The key, say Chowhounds, is to use plum tomatoes, which are meatier and less juicy than other varieties. Halve the tomatoes and remove the seeds, which will get rid of a lot of the liquid. Some hounds like to roast plum tomatoes before using them as a pizza topping, as this dries them out and concentrates their flavor, but others feel roasting negates the freshness factor. They advocate slicing seeded tomatoes very thinly and allowing them to drain on paper towels before adding them to your pie.
