Ingredients

  • 4 slices of fresh sourdough bread
  • 2 tsp olive oil (+ more to finish)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 + 1/4 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced (about 5 mushrooms)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (like marinara)
  • 3 large or 8 small balls of bocconcini cheese, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • Fresh basil, to garnish
  • Salt + pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to a broil.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and place slices of sourdough bread on top.
  • Heat a small pan to medium and add olive oil. Sauté mushrooms and cherry tomatoes for 5 minutes (they do not need to be fully cooked). Remove from heat.
  • Spread pizza sauce on top of each slice of sourdough. Then, add slices of bocconcini, sautéed tomatoes, and mushrooms - divide ingredients evenly between 4 slices of bread.
  • Once your broiler is ready, place the baking sheet under the broiler for 2-5 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted. Be sure to keep an eye on your toasts to make sure that nothing burns!
  • Remove from oven, and top with oregano, fresh basil, salt, pepper, and an extra drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy immediately!

Notes

*Bocconcini cheese comes in different sizes. If you purchase the smaller balls, simply cut them in half. If you purchase the larger ones, cut each ball into 4 rounds.
*These pizza toasts should be enjoyed immediately while still hot. If you need to reheat them, place them in the oven for a couple minutes until the cheese melts again!
*MORE TOPPING IDEAS: There are SO many ways that you can customize this recipe! Just like regular pizza, the topping combinations are endless. Here are some ideas:
  • other vegetables, like roasted red peppers or grilled zucchini (this would even be a great way to use up leftover cooked veggies!)
  • other cheeses, like goat cheese, shredded cheddar, or gorgonzola
  • pesto instead of (or in addition to) red pizza sauce
  • pepperoni slices, if you enjoy meat
