 Ingredients List

  • 16 Slices of Italian bread,
  • Cut 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/4 c Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c Black or green olivada* OR
  • 1/3 c (4 oz.) Calamata olives,
  • Pitted or finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb Fresh mozzarella cheese,
  • Cut in 14 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 lb Plum tomatoes, cut
  • Lengthwise into 16 1/4-inch
  • Slices
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Brush one side of the bread slices with some
of the olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet oiled side up. Bake until
lightly browned and crusty, about 4 minutes. 2. Spread the olivada or
chopped olives on each toast, cover each with a slice of mozzarella and top
with a slice of tomato. Brush the tomatoes with the remaining oil and
sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 8
to 10 minutes. Serve at once.

* Olivada is a puree of black or green olives packed in oil that is sold at
specialty food stores. You can substitute tapenade or make your own. (Note
from me: We have a batch of pesto in the refrigerator so I plan to use it
instead of the olivada.) I also plan to use Creole or homegrown tomatoes.
