Crostini with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Serves 12
Pizza oven or roasting oven environment


  • 2 baskets small cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 6 slices rustic Italian bread, halved


Rinse the tomatoes and place on a sheet pan with the oil and garlic. Toss to coat and set in the oven. Cook until slightly charred and softened. Remove from oven; add salt and basil.

Set bread slices on a sheet pan and place in the wood-burning oven. Cook for 1–2 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Remove and top with roasted tomatoes and all the pan juices.

    I made this on Father’s Day and it was a huge hit. I used a mix of organic heirloom cherry tomatoes I found at the Farmer’s Market and it was absolutely mouth watering. I will make this again and again. It was so quick and easy too!
