A Pizza-Like Dish That's Beautifully Imperfect
Use: Cherry tomatoes (some sliced, some left whole)

This easy-breezy recipe reminds us of a deep-dish pizza, but instead of using a traditional crust, you use polenta (Italian cornmeal). Once you've whisked it with butter and stock and cooked it in a skillet, you scatter sliced mushrooms (any kind), crumbled feta and a hodgepodge of sliced and whole cherry tomatoes, which give the dish a nicely imperfect look. Slip it under the broiler so everything melts and the tomatoes slump, then toss a handful of arugula on top and your dinner is served.
