However, I am still unsure. Panzanella Crostini/Bruschetta 1/2 to 3/4 loaf of fresh bread, sliced in 1/2 inch thick pieces(we went with italian as we have loose teeth to worry about) but french bread would be a great choice. 2 large tomatoes, sliced 8 or more slices of mozzarella, about 1/4 inch thick ~1/2 cup baby spinach leaves extra virgin olive oil balsamic vinegar.
