Brush oil on the bread slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until crisp.
Next, add tomatoes, honey, olive oil, pepper and salt in a medium bowl, and toss gently.
Arrange the tomatoes on your other baking sheet and place them in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes or until tomatoes start to shrivel.
Once everything is ready, add small pieces of fresh mozzarella to each slice of toast and add a spoonful of the roasted tomatoes on top.
