What you’ll need

Cook beans and set aside. Set the oven to broil with a rack 6 inches from the broiling element. Place sliced bread on a sheet tray, drizzle with olive oil, and broil for about 3-5 minutes until golden brown, monitoring throughout.

The bean liquid should be rich and concentrated. If watery, simmer for 5-15 minutes to concentrate. Reserve ⅓ cup of the liquid, drain the beans, and pour back into the pot. Add pasta sauce, half of the basil leaves, and the reserved bean liquid. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using). Stir to fully incorporate and wilt the basil, and transfer to a casserole dish or large oven safe skillet.

Top with the sliced mozzarella, pepperoni (if using), and a drizzle of olive oil. Place on the prepared rack and broil for about 5 minutes until golden brown and bubbly, monitoring throughout. Carefully remove from the oven, garnish with remaining basil, and serve on toasted bread.
