Let's Make It
In a small bowl, combine the oil and garlic; let stand for 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, basil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the garlic mixture. Stir well to blend and let stand for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to broil. Brush both sides of the bread slices with the garlic-oil mixture. Place on a baking sheet. Broil 5 inches from the heat, turning the slices until each side is lightly toasted.
Spoon the tomato mixture onto each bread slice and top with mozzarella cheese. Add a sprinkling of parmesan or feta cheese, if desired. Return the baking sheets to the oven and broil until the cheese is melted and the tomato mixture is warmed.
