Simply Italiano - Day 3 of 5

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

That weight I lost with "Healthy Eat Week" is going to come right back with all this AMAZING Italian food I've been making.  But what is Italian food without some good sandwich and pizza recipes?  This next recipe is lighter sandwich without all the heavy sauces.  Just some tomatoes, olive oil, cheese and bread....okay, okay....maybe not exactly the lightest of foods, but a good lunch item or smaller dinner served with a soup or salad.  I hope you enjoy this one, 'cause I know it's already got me heading to the kitchen, thank goodness for laptops!  So...grab your aprons and hold on to your chef hats!  We're gunna get cookin' up something good :)

Rustic Tuscany Bread

1 pound frozen bread dough
1 tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1 can (14.5-ounces) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano, drained
1/2 cup (2-ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (2-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
Non stick cooking spray

Thaw bread dough; let rise according to package directions

Roll dough out to a 12X10 inch rectangle.  Brush dough lightly with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Layer well-drained tomatoes and cheeses over dough.  Fold dough in thired over filling.  With a sharp knife, make three diagonal cuts, about 2 inches apart, on top of dough through first layer.  Repect with second set of cuts in opposite direction.
