extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt to taste

1 1/4 pounds
fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
fresh basil, leaves removed and coarsely chopped

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.
