Plum tomatoes usually have better flavor and are less watery than other tomatoes during the off season, so they are great for this recipe. If you're without a baking sheet, carefully arrange the bread slices directly on the oven rack.
2 servings (serving size: 2 bread slices and about 1/3 cup tomato mixture)

Ingredients
