Neapolitan style Crostini

Neapolitan style Crostini

Ingredients

  • 16 slices of Italian bread, cut 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup black or green olivada or 1/3 cup (4 oz) Calamata olives, chopped
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, cut in 14 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 pound plum tomatoes, cut lengthwise into 16 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Yield: 16 servings. 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. 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. Note: 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.
