How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 425°F. Place bread cut side up on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes; let cool slightly. Add the parsley, oregano, and ½ teaspoon salt. Brush the butter mixture onto the bread. Bake until the edges of the bread are crisp, 6-7 minutes. Remove from the oven.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, red pepper flakes, several grinds black pepper and remaining ¾ teaspoon salt in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.

Step 4

Spread tomato sauce on the toasted bread. Top with mozzarella and Parmesan. Broil on high until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly, 6-7 minutes.

Chef's Notes


For three cheese: Add 1 oz. Asiago per third before baking
For pepperoni: Add ⅓ cup chopped pepperoni per third before baking
For margherita: Add fresh basil after baking
