  • 2 plum tomatoes, thinkly sliced

  • 8 large basil leaves, optional

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 cup store-bought pizza sauce

  • 8 strips mozzarella, 1/4 in. wide x 4 in. long

  • 8 sliced pitted black olives


  • Preheat broiler. Sprinkle 4 bread slices with cheese, then divide tomato and basil over cheese. Top with remaining 4 bread slices. Brush oil on both sides of sandwiches.
