* Cut the tomatoes in wedges and spread them over the top.

* Pour 3/4 Cup of olive oil over the tomatoes. Sprinkle salt and oregano over the entire focaccia.

This is a recipe that I have leaned from my mother-in-law Romana. She makes it every Sunday and we always look forward to it. Now I have learned to make it myself and it comes out great every time.
