Bruschetta Pizza

The inspiration came from a dish I saw on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  Bruschetta is a traditional tomato-based topping for toasted bread slices. Using pizza crust, rolled very thin in cornmeal, makes it even better. The combination of tomatoes, garlic, red onion, feta, and fresh herbs works beautifully. This makes a lovely appetizer or main dish when served with a salad. Enjoy!

Bruschetta Pizza
1 pizza dough round
4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
10 yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. finely minced red onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano

1. Roll out dough on a surface dusted with cornmeal, and place on baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle crust with tomatoes and next 3 ingredients. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs.
2. Bake at 425° for 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Cut into triangles or squares.
