1 small loaf French bread (or foccacia or other bread)
6 tablespoons basil pesto (or substitute olive oil)
6 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
1 pound fresh mozzarella, thickly sliced
fresh basil leaves (about 24)

Slice the French bread on the diagonal, making at least a dozen slices. (If using foccacia, split in half and slice into wedges.) Coat one side of each slice of bread with pesto or olive oil. Layer on the tomato slices, season with salt and pepper, add the mozzarella slices and fresh basil leaves, and top with a second piece of bread.
