   medium heat, heat oil.  Add onions and mushrooms; saute for 5 minutes
   until the onion and mushrooms are tender.
   Meanwhile, split pita bread in half horizontally.  Place pita halves
   directly on oven rack and bake for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
   Arrange tomato slices and basil leaves on bread.  Scatter cooked
   onions and mushrooms over top.  Sprinkle with oregrano and goat
   cheese. Bake 3 to 8 minutes or until begins to brown around edges.
   Remove from oven and cut each pita half in 4 wedges.
   
   NOTE: Substitute zuccihini for the mushooms and Parmesan for goat
   cheese. Proceed as directed. ( I will keep the mushrooms and use
   Parmesan Cheese).
