Bikini Pizza with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

Bikini, the Catalan term for grilled cheese sandwiches with ham, are a favorite snack in Barcelona. Ferran Adrià loves these sandwiches, which is rather astonishing for an experimental Spanish chef to admit. He makes his hamless version with a tasty mix of mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms and basil, and calls them pizzas.

  1. 8 slices sourdough bread
  2. 1/2 pound buffalo mozzarella, drained well and thinly sliced
  3. 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained, plus 4 teaspoons oil reserved from the jar
  4. 4 small white mushrooms, thinly sliced
  5. 4 large basil leaves
  6. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Arrange 4 slices of the sourdough bread on a work surface and top with mozzarella. Cover with the sun-dried tomatoes and the mushrooms. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of the tomato oil over each sandwich and top with a basil leaf. Close the sandwiches.
  2. Heat a griddle. Brush the sandwiches with the olive oil, transfer to the griddle and weight them down with a heavy pan. Cook over moderate heat, turning once, until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, about 9 minutes total. Cut into pieces and serve right away.
