A merging of french bread and italian mozzarela

For breakfast variation eats, I have been preparing this french bread slices topped with lots of grated garlic, diced fresh tomatoes, olive oil, freshly milled black pepper, mozzarella cheese, and some fresh basil, and then heating it in the breakfast oven since 5 years ago. That was when I knew very little about cooking and food preparation. Duh!

Now, I realize it is something similar to the Italian's bruschetta.

According to Wikipedia bruschetta is:

"is a food whose origin dates to at least the 15th century from central Italy. It consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper, tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, and/or cheese; the most popular American recipe involves basil, fresh mozzarella, and tomato. Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer. In Italy, Bruschetta is often prepared using a brustolina grill. In Tuscany, bruschetta is called fettunta, meaning 'oiled slice'."
