Servings 1 person


  • 2 Slices French Bread
  • 2 Tbsp Pizza/Tomato Sauce
  • 2-4 Slices Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3-4 Fresh Basil Leaves, chopped
  • 1-2 Pinches Garlic Powder
  • Olive Oil


  • In a pan on medium-low heat, add a light coating of olive oil.
  • While pan is heating, brush the outside of both slices of bread with olive oil (a flavoured olive oil like basil, or garlic goes great on this sandwich!),
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce on the inside of each slice of bread, top the bottom slice with 2-4 pieces of fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, a sprinkle of garlic power, and the top slice of bread.
  • Place in pan, cooking until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted. Add more olive oil if needed.
