Ingredients
Whole Grain or Lite English Muffin
4 thin slices of a large tomato
1 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
Garlic powder
Oregano
Salt & Pepper
Any veggie topping you like ( broccoli, green peppers, onions, corn, olives, etc)

Method

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees. Toast the muffin till light golden on both sides (about 3-4 mins). Brush with a light layer of olive oil if you like.

Measure out the mozzarella cheese and slice the tomato. Add a little sprinkle of the cheese on each toasted muffin (will help the tomatoes stick). Place a slice of tomato on each and sprinkle with all the spices. Add bit more of the cheese to help the next tomato slices stick.

Layer with more tomato slices, sprinkle with spices, top with any veggie toppings and remaining cheese. Bake for a few minutes until cheese melts.
