Tomato and Mushroom Focaccia


1 tablespoon olive oil

6 ounces fresh crimini mushrooms, sliced

1 focaccia bread (10 to 12 inch)

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)

1 can (14.5 ounces) organic diced tomatoes, drained

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. In 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Drain if necessary.

2. On ungreased cookie sheet, place bread. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of the cheese on bread. Top with mushrooms and tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is hot. Sprinkle with basil.

Tip: Look for focaccia, a flat Italian bread, in the bakery section. Choose a plain focaccia or one flavored with garlic or Parmesan.
