Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Tomato marinade

Cut a ripe tomato into cubes and marinate the cubes in a shallow dish with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a few minutes.

Pizza Toast

Butter the bread on both sides.

In a hot frying pan, toast the bread for about two minutes on each side, until crisp and golden.

Once the bread is toasted, lower the heat to medium-low and add 2 slices of mozzarella on each slice of bread.

Cover and cook over low heat until the mozzarella starts to melt.

Once the mozzarella has melted slightly, add the marinara sauce (tomato sauce) on top.

Arrange the diced, marinated tomatoes on top. (Leave the oil and balsamic mix out).

Add grated Parmesan and broil in the oven for a few minutes.

Garnish with fresh basil and a drizzle of truffle oil. Enjoy !
