First of all: What is Carasau bread (Pane Carasau)?
It is a very typical bread from Sardinia! Wikipedia describes it as: “… thin and crisp, usually in the form of a dish half a metre wide…” and you can also read some information about its ancient origins, if you’d like to know more.
I am sure you can find it in some Italian deli… even if it’s nicer eaten on a Sardinian beach – no doubt!
4 -5 Tomatoes (or some cherry tomatoes)
1 Nice fresh Onion, red or white
A small fist of Pine nuts
A small fist of Capers (salted capers are definitely the best choice)
A few Basil leaves
Chop all the tomatoes in small pieces and leave them aside in a bowl to marinate with olive oil, salt and the basil leaves.
Place a first layer of Carasau bread and cover it with the chopped tomatoes, their sauce and the thin onion slices.
Carry on, putting alternate layers of tomatoes and layers of mozzarella.
Pour all the nice sauce from the tomatoes and add some salt, olive oil and oregano if needed.
Place a last layer of bread and finish with the roasted pine nuts, olive oil and salt.
