Recipe: Tuna and thyme bruschetta

Sandwiches and bruschetta with herbs
March 18, 2013

Sometimes we prepare often some recipes, completely changing the ingredients and keeping only the basic idea. It's the case of this bruschetta, fast and tasty, that my mother called bread pizza. She used the classic ingredients of pizza capricciosa: boiled egg, ham, mozzarella, origano, but just like the pizza, you can vary the ingredients of this bruschetta as you prefer.
Over the years I have tried many different combinations, and this version, with tuna and thyme was very successful.

Serves two:
2 rolls of wheat, preferably from the day before
150g mozzarella
100g tuna oil
1 tablespoon capers
tomato sauce

Cut the sandwiches in half and place them on a baking sheet with the inside facing up.
Brush with a layer of tomato sauce, add the chopped tuna, the capers and finally the mozzarella, then sprinkle with thyme.
Grill in the oven for 5-7 minutes, until the mozzarella is melted.
