Cunzato bread with mozzarella, chicory and sun-dried tomatoes

First of all, clean the chicory by removing the stems and the hardest parts, then boil it in plenty of lightly salted water. Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a pan: add the crushed garlic clove and chilli pepper. When garlic is golden, Remove it and add the chicory.

Heat the bread in the oven, so that the crust becomes crispy. Divide it in half and season both parts with extra virgin olive oil. Obtain from buffalo mozzarella from Campania D.O.P. two slices of equal size, fairly thick. Chop olives and capers coarsely.

Put on a slice of bread the chicory, Arrange a slice of buffalo mozzarella. Spread some anchovies in oil or salt over the mozzarella (In this case first you have to wash them thoroughly and then grease them with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil).
