Frozen bread dough is the convenient base for this herb-flavored flat Italian bread. These savory slices are a super appetizer at a summer gathering. It's a fun and delicious way to use up abundant garden tomatoes and fresh zucchini.
"I often substitute portobellos for hamburger patties, but in this open-faced recipe, they take the place of buns. My family loves this tasty, healthful dinner, and it's ready in no time." Elizabeth Doss, California City, California
