"This was good, but it didn't have quite as much flavor as I would have liked. The cheese was super melty, gooey, and delicious. The tomato was a little bland and maybe could have used a shake of salt to bring out the flavor. My basil is pretty old so I didn't taste that much (definitely not the recipe's fault!) but the oregano was nice. I might serve this with a side of marinara for dipping in the future."
