I really like this. Very simple to prepare and delicious. Also very filling. I was going to eat this with salad, but the salad is on the bread! I was a bit flaky when I shopped for the ingredients, as I ended up with fresh mozzarella instead of slices and regular sausage instead of hot. I also ended up with green olives with pimentos, and looking back at the recipe, I suppose it calls for just green olives. Anyway, I really like the combo of flavors in this and am already thinking about how to make it less messy. It's kind of like an overtopped pizza or overstuffed sandwich--you can eat it with your fingers, but everything keeps falling off. I like everything on this bread, and I think you really have to, because there are a lot of strong flavors! I like how it all goes together, and I think that it would be wonderful to sub tapenade for the olives and toast the bread first so that you could put the tapenade, the olive oil and balsamic sauce, then the sausage and the remainder of the ingredients. I think it might make it a bit less messy and manageable. Of course, part of it was my fault since I used fresh mozzarella and sliced it thicker than what purchased slices would be. Still, the bread had a nice crunch on the bottom and I liked all the flavors together. I tossed on some diced orange bell pepper I had to use it up.
