1. Preheat oven to 475°F.
2. Lightly toast the bread for 5 minutes.
3. Spoon the tomato sauce over the bread. Top with the basil, then tomato slices, then the cheese.
4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, then broil for 1 to 2 minutes to brown the tops.
TIP: Look for fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese, which adds just the right tang and creaminess.
