  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Brush the slices of bread lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking sheet. Toast under the broiler for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Rub each crostini with a garlic clove for flavor.
  2. Place the tomatoes into a medium bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the crostini on a serving tray. Top each one with a slice of mozzarella cheese, cover with a spoonful of tomatoes, and garnish with fresh basil.

I don't really like bread broiled. So I mixed it all up, heaped it on the bread & cooked at 375 for 6-8 min. Perfect, thanks!

LOVE It! Love it! Love it! My family had this as a light dinner with fruit and summer sausage. We are definetly going to keep this one! Thanks for a quick and easy recipe that is bursting wit...

The flavor was very good. The bread was too hard to bite into to. I will try it again but with extremely fresh, softer bread.

I keep going back to this and similar recipes for bruschetta and am pretty set on what works best for me. I use Iowa-grown Graddy's or garden-fresh roma tomatoes, fresh basil (chopped or torn), ...
