Crostini couldn't be simpler to make or more versatile to use. Meaning "toasts" in Italian, they are the perfect base for your pick of toppings.

Slice it evenly, brush with a little olive oil on both sides, and toast just enough to crisp, not darken, the slices. Pair with one (or more) of our favorite toppings for your next party.
