- while still warm, mix in the mozzarella, so it melts slightly.

Very tasty. I had a problem with the temperature and cook time. I had to go up to 400 for the last 10 minutes and it was still not done enough on my onions. I put in the cucumber to bake for my picky son who hates both tomatoes and cucumbers. He even loved it. He said it tasted like pizza salad.
This was very good and easy to make. I am always looking for things to make to take to work. This fits the bill nicely. Thanks for sharing it.
Tried this recipe because we had some cucumbers to use up. Personal preference, but my family didn't really enjoy it. (Think that's our taste buds, not the quality of the recipe.) I did take the leftovers and stir fry them with about 1 cup of angel hair pasta and it was very tasty.
