Recipe Instructions

Quickly slice and saute fresh or frozen artichoke hearts in olive oil until just tender. Drain on paper towels (if using canned, simply drain well). Saute mushrooms in olive oil until tender and lightly browned. Drain on paper towels and season lightly with salt and pepper.

Lightly but evenly butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan and coat with 3/4 cup of the bread crumbs. Combine the parmesan, pecorino, remaining l/2 cup bread crumbs and chopped herbs in a bowl and set aside.

Alternately layer one third of the mushrooms, artichokes, capers, olives, tomatoes, mozzarella and bread crumb mixture. Press down lightly after each layer is formed and be sure to end with the bread crumb mixture.

Drizzle a tablespoon or two of olive oil over the top of the pie and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Remove and cool for 8 to 10 minutes before unmolding. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
