How to Make It
Preheat broiler to high with oven rack in highest position. Arrange cutlets in a single layer on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet.
Drain tomatoes in a colander (reserve tomato juice for another use, like making Bloody Marys). Crush tomatoes into small pieces with your hands; drain again. Transfer drained tomatoes to a bowl and stir in salt. Spoon tomatoes over cutlets. Top with cheese and 1/4 cup basil.
Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining 1/4 cup basil and several grinds of pepper.
