Open Faced French Bread Pizza

This is another of those recipes I bought the ingredients for but on account of rain my tennis match was cancelled.  I made one any way and had it for dinner that night.  You can top these any way imaginable but here is what I did.  Split 1 Italian Loaf of Bread evenly down the middle lengthwise.  Preheat Broiler.  Brush each half with Olive Oil.  Add a layer of clean dry Spinach Leaves.  Thinly slice Tomatoes and lay them onto the spinach.  Using a press, press a Clove of Garlic and distribute as evenly as possible onto the tomato.  Add a small sprinkle of Kosher Salt and some Freshly Ground Pepper.  Top with a single layer of Munster Cheese (or whatever you are in the mood for).  I personally like the way this cheese melts and browns.  Add a sprinkle of Oregano.  BTW, you can always add fresh herbs under the cheese layer.  Place under the broiler for about 5-7 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes and cut on the diagonal into 3-4" slices.  Nice for lunch, snack, appetizer or dinner.  If you are taking these somewhere, cut them onsite.
