14 ounce package (12-inch)
thin-style Italian bread shell, such as Boboli brand
roasted sweet pepper bruschetta topper, kalamata olive bruschetta topper, or desired pizza sauce
fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
Freshly ground black pepper or crushed red pepper
Small fresh basil leaves
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil; set aside. Use a 2-inch round cutter to cut Italian bread shell into 18 to 20 circles (or use a knife to cut into 20 squares/pieces).* Place bread shell pieces onto prepared baking sheet.
Spread bruschetta topper on bread shell pieces. Top with mozzarella cheese and tomato slices. (If necessary, cut cheese and tomatoes to fit.)
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread pieces are crisp. Sprinkle with black pepper and top with basil leaves just before serving. If desired, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
