    Bruschetta and crostini, terms now unfortunately used interchangeably, are similar yet have subtle differences.

    Bruschetta (from the verb bruscare, to roast or to char) historically larger pieces of bread, while crostini (from the verb crostare, to cook as to form a crust; literally, little crust) are made with smaller slices of bread. Roasting/toasting both over coals or a wood-burning oven gives them a grilled, smokey flavor compared to broiling in an electric oven.
