I hate to be the one giving a bad review here... but I just didn't care for this at all. My bf thought this was "OK," however. I didn't expect him to BEG me to make this again, especially since he doesn't care for baked tomatoes anyways (but he WILL eat them). As other's have mentioned, these DO NOT taste like pizza at all (but I can't say I expected them to...)!!! I used my tomato slicer to make thin, even slices, abt. 1/4 in. thick. I used 1 lg. tomato (which was plenty for 2 ppl. - IMHO, 2 tomatoes would be PLENTY for 4 ppl.). I used powdered Romano cheese & Progresso Italian seasoned bread crumbs since I couldn't find fresh at the store & didn't have any stale bread on hand to make my own. I also added ~ 1 T fresh chopped basil instead of parsley (I had it on hand, so why not?) & subbed Italian seasoning for oregano b/c I didn't have any avail. I overlapped my tomato slices in a round baking dish, sprinkled with coarse salt & fresh cracked blk. pepper, spread w/ Romano, breadcrumbs, garlic, seasoning & a drizzle of EVOO, baked @ 350 degrees for 10 min., then topped w/ shredded mozzarella cheese (to taste) & broiled for another 2.5 min. We served this w/ Creamy Pesto Shrimp by Loretta Buffa (thx. for the suggestion Bayou Gator!). Even though I didn't care for either, I must admit that they paired nicely together. Maybe this will float your boat, but it just didn't ours. Thx. anyways :)
