Instructions

  1. Spread olive oil with a pastry or basting brush over two slices of bread. Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
  2. Place one of the bread slices, oil-side down and top basil leaves, tomato slices, onion, and mozzarella. Top with other piece of bread, olive oil side up.

  5. Slice sandwich in half to make 2 servings.
