MEDITERRANEAN PIZZA BREAD

I haven't posted a recipe in a long time and decided it was time. Those of you who know me know that cooking is not my favorite thing to do; but for some reason, my family likes to eat.

This is an easy, quick recipe that can be used for an appetizer or as a side dish to roasted meat.


MEDITERRANEAN PIZZA BREAD


8 slices of Italian bread (sliced about 1/2-inch thick)


1/4 cup olive oil


1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano


1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


3 seeded and chopped Roma tomatoes


1/2 cup chopped and pitted black olives


6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled


Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix olive oil, oregano, and red pepper flakes together; then brush mixture on both sides of bread slices. Bake on baking sheet for about 4 minutes. Turn slices upside down. Combine cheeses. Sprinkle slices with the cheese mixture, reserving about 1/2 cup to sprinkle on the top. Then sprinkle each slice with tomatoes, olives, and remaining cheese. Return to oven, baking until cheese melts.


Hope you enjoy this easy side dish.
