Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 4 min.
Wash and remove the stalk from 2 tomatoes.

You can peel them, but it's not essential.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and pour into a large bowl.

Stage 3 - 3 min.
Pour over tomatoes 4 tablespoons vinegar, 4 tablespoons olive oil, chopped herbs, salt and pepper, then mix well.

Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F).

Stage 4 - 2 min.
Place 4 slices bread on a sheet of baking paper on a baking sheet.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Using a brush, carefully oil each slice of bread, then season lightly with salt and pepper.

Stage 6 - 4 min.
Place the tomatoes on each slice of bread.

Stage 7 - 4 min.
Scatter the mozzarella over the top.

Stage 8 - 15 min.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Stage 9
Enjoy warm or cold.
If possible, choose a sourdough bread, a rustic country-style loaf, which you can also toast before oiling.

You can try replacing the mozzarella with gorgonzola cheese, which is very successful.
Enjoy as soon as possible, but can be reheated.
Home made.
