Italian bread serves as the crunchy crust for this quick meal. Try the bacon-mushroom mixture with salads and pasta, too.


  • 12 oz bacon
  • 1 1/2 lbs white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tbs garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp oregano leaves, crushed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 large (10 ounces) Italian bread shell
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup plum tomatoes, sliced


  • In a large skillet over medium heat cook bacon until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel; crumble; set aside.
  • Pour off all but 4 tablespoons bacon fat. Add mushroom, onions and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid evaporates, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in crumbled bacon, oregano, salt and black pepper. (Yields 3 1/2 cups).
  • Preheat oven to 450° F. Place bread shell on a pizza pan or baking tray. Sprinkle cheese over shell. Spoon 1 3/4 cups drained mushroom bacon mixture over cheese. Top with tomatoes. Bake until hot and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
