Mediterranean Pizza (TNT)

Here is another really great meatless meal....Just a few notes...I also added some fresh spinach to the toppings and I used the black olives instead of the Kalamata olives. I couldn't find a two pound round loaf of bread, so I used two 1-lb. loaves of bread and cut 4 slices of bread (you might need to make them a little thicker than 1/2 is hard to cut them that thin....

I also added some fresh spinach as a topping for the pizza. I used the black olives just because we prefer them....and they are much less expensive than the Kalamata olives!
