Brushcetta can be topped with practically anything so long as it all adds up to a tasty experience, though sticking with Italian flavors tends to be the wisest course. As here, for example, where cream cheese (or mascarpone, for a more authentic option), arugula, tomato, bell pepper, and anchovies rule the day, along with a sprinkling of fresh or dried oregano and a drizzle of your best extra-virgin olive oil.


  • 2 slices bread (rustic or homemade)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 handful arugula
  • 1 tomato (sliced)
  • 1/2 yellow pepper (cut into strips)
  • 6 anchovies
  • 1 garlic
  • oregano
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
  2. Brush the bread slices with olive oil on both sides, and bake until well browned.
  3. Rub the bread with garlic while still hot.
  4. Spread the cream cheese on the bread, top with arugula, tomato slices, and sprinkle with oregano.
  5. Then top with roasted yellow pepper strips, and anchovies.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil.
