  • Tear bread into 1/2- to 1-inch irregular pieces. Place on a large baking sheet and toss with oil. Season with pepper. Bake until golden brown and crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
