Margherita Pizza the easy way

You know what? To heck with the great Tomato Scare!
I made a great quick pizza-ish bread a few weeks back that is so tasty and easy, I wanted to share!
Take one large baguette or french bread loaf, white, wheat whatever you like,
and split it in half lengthwise.
Then slice up some fresh mozzarella (Costco sells a nice, moderately priced one)
and slice some tomato thinly. You can also slice up some basil if you like.
Light toast the bread under a broiler for a quick 15 seconds just to get the bread lightly crusty,
and drizzle with olive oil and brush with some crushed garlic.
Lay the cheese and tomato all over the bread and pop it back into the broiler until the cheese is melted and slightly bubbly, if you sliced basil, now you add it, after its cooked.
Do this all just before you intend to eat so you can have the sensation of the oozy cheese during dinner. Serve with a lightly dressed salad and listen to your taste buds sing!
Thank me later... go make some now!
Go! Now! Yum is waiting!
