   ~----------------- Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
   Mix the meats, bread crumbs, egg, oregano leaves, salt
   and half of the tomato sauce.  Press the mixture
   evenly against the bottom and sides of an ungreased
   10-inch pie pan.  Sprinkle the mushrooms and olives in
   the meat line pan then pour the remaining tomato sauce
   over the vegetables.  Bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
   The pepperoni gives a red-flecked appearance to the
   meat.  Sprinkle the pie with the shredded cheese and
   bake an additional 5 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes then
   cut into 6 wedges. NOTE:
   If a 10-inch pie pan is not available, use a 9-inch
   one but put a pan under it to catch the run off of
   juices.  Also you can use an 8 oz can of cut green
   beans or whole kernel corn in place of the mushrooms
   if desired.
