Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Arrange slices of baguette onto a baking sheet and brush both sides of each slice with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Toast the bread in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Flip the bread slices over and top each slice with a slice of tomato and a slice of mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. Return crostini to the oven and bake until tomato and mozzarella slices are warmed through, about 5 more minutes.
  5. Arrange the crostini onto a serving platter and sprinkle with basil. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle lightly with more sea salt and black pepper.

This is a solid recipe - however I would recommend toasting the bread under the broiler flip and top then back to the broiler for just long enough for the cheese to start to melt. I think I prefer to dice up the tomatoes with the basil and some olive oil. It is easier to eat without a knife and fork. Thanks for a tasty recipe. BTW - I served this with a balsamic glaze.

This was delicious. I served it at my holiday party and everyone couldn't get enough. We really like the crunchiness of the bread.
