1. Slice loaf in half horizontally. Set halves, cut side up, on a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. Broil about 4 inches from heat until toasted, about 2 minutes. If crust side is soft, turn over and toast 1 to 2 minutes longer.
2. Cut garlic clove in half. Rub clove over cut surface of bread. Brush or drizzle bread with oil.
3. Cut tomato in half horizontally; rub cut sides over toast, squeezing slightly to release juices.
