Tomatoes Mushrooms and Mozzarella Baguette Pizza
This simple and espress recipe comes from the issue of May 2006 of Coup de Pouce. It looks delicious. And I have not tried this. With the review of Redsie, it's a good idea to add pizza sauce.
- Ready In:
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 onions, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 3 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mixed Italian herbs
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 baguette, cut in 4 on the width, then in half on the length
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
- 2⁄3 cup basil leaves, packed
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- In a skillet, heat oil at medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, mushroom, salt, italian herbs and pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 6 minutes or until mushrooms are golden.
- Put slices of baguette on a baking sheet and sprinkle them with half the cheese. Spread on the slices of bread 1/2 cup of basil leaves, the mixture of mushrooms and tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Cook in a preheated oven of 400 F for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Cut remaining basil leaves in fine strips and sprinkle on hot pizzas.

I made this for a party I went to so I sliced a mini baguette and topped with everything but the tomato, only because I forgot it trying to get out of the house to the party. It was very good, but I think the key here is the Italian herbs that you use. I recently bought some spice mixes at TJ Maxx (believe it or not) that are out of this world. They can be found at www.vgourmet.com. I used the the Sicilian. To put the onion and mushroom mixture on the little bread, I put it in a bowl and cut it up with a fork and knife (I know, not very gourmet.) :D Only if you like onions and mushrooms is this recipe for you. I love them. The pizza sauce probably would have been a nice addition - of course the tomato as well. Pretty tasty though!
I scaled this down for two though I probably scaled down most ingredients by only about a third - so our baguettes had wonderfully generous toppings! Enjoyed for a lazy, leisurely weekend brunch. Just loved the herbs and particularly the basil with the mushrooms and tomatoes. Do use the most flavoursome tomatoes you can in this recipe! Made for PRMR. Thank you for sharing another delicious recipe, Boomette.
