Bruschetta Pizza – For a Simple & Delicious Lunch or Dinner

Growing up in a large East Coast Italian-Irish family, at family gatherings, holidays and special occasions, we loved to enjoy a host of appetizers before the main meal event.

Bruschetta, an Italian antipasto or starter dish, is made of a mix of tomato, onions, basil, olive oil and salt that you put over bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil, and salt.

My Bruschetta Pizza is a yummy dish that you can serve for dinner with a large green salad, or you can cut it up into wedges to serve as an appetizer when you have guests for dinner.
