Ingredients
  • 6 slices good Tuscan round bread, sliced 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 large garlic clove, cut in half
  • Good olive oil
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto (torn in pieces, if desired)
  • 2 ounces fresh smoked mozzarella, grated
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Prepare a charcoal grill with medium-hot coals or turn a gas grill to medium-high heat.

  • Grill the bread for 2 minutes, until golden on one side. Place the bread grilled side up on a platter and immediately rub the cut side of the garlic clove over the surface of the bread. For really garlicky fettunta, rub hard. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over each slice of bread.

  • Place the torn prosciutto over the grilled side of the bread and top with the grated mozzarella. Return the bread to the hot grill, cover the grill, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes-just long enough to melt the cheese and rewarm the toast. (Be sure the vent is open so the fire doesn't go out!) Drizzle with a little more olive oil, sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper, and serve hot.
