- 3-4 medium sized tomatoes (chopped)

- 6tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- Mozzarella cheese ( or a cheese of your choosing)
- Fresh oregano
- Fresh rosemary
- ¼ tsp of dried red pepper flakes
Take your chopped tomatoes (their juices) and place them in a bowl, then seasoned them with salt, pepper, oregano, rosemary and red pepper flakes. Now tear your basil leaves then stir them into the tomatoes and allow the mixture to sit for 10-12 minutes. Next place your bread on a broiler to toast them on both sides; you can also toast the bread to achieve the same results. Then take a piece of garlic and rub one side of toasted bread slices to ensure that the garlic flavor is on the bread. Now spread your tomato mixture onto each garlic side slice of bread then sprinkle a little bit of Mozzarella cheese on each slice.
