|12 slices Italian bread, such as ciabatta, about 3/4 in (2 cm) thick||4 oz mozzarella cheese, drained and cut into 12 thin slices|
|1 garlic clove, peeled||1 tsp dried Italian herbs|
|extra virgin olive oil||12 anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained and cut in half crosswise|
|1/2 cup store-bought marinara sauce||6 pitted Kalamata olives, sliced|
|salt and freshly ground black pepper|
Preheat the broiler and position the rack 6in (15cm) from the heat. Broil the bread slices until toasted golden on both sides. Rub 1 side of each slice with the garlic clove. Brush the garlic side of each slice with about 2 tsp olive oil.
For each bruschetta, spread the toasted bread with about 2 tsp marinara sauce and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Put 1 slice of mozzarella on each, sprinkle with the herbs, and top with 2 pieces of anchovy in a criss-cross pattern.
Broil for 2–3 minutes, or until the mozzarella has melted. Serve hot, sprinkled with the olives.
