• 1 small loaf, sliced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • 4 vine-ripened tomatoes, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil


Preheat a chargrill or grill over high heat and brush the bread slices on both sides with 3 tablespoons (60ml) of the olive oil. When the grill is hot, toast the bread slices (in batches if necessary) for 1-2 minutes on each side until charred and golden, then set aside.

Place the tomato in a bowl with the garlic, basil and remaining olive oil. Season well with salt and pepper and stir to combine. When ready to serve, pile the topping onto the bread and drizzle with a little extra oil if desired.
