A common method of cooking the dish

Pappa al pomodoro is a thick Tuscan bread soup typically prepared with fresh tomatoes, bread, olive oil, garlic, basil, and various other fresh ingredients. It is usually made with stale or leftover bread, and can be served hot, room temperature, or chilled.

Pomodoro means "tomato" in Italian;[1] the dish translates to English as "mush of tomato". The dish has ancient origins, although it was largely popularized by the 1911 publication of Il Giornalino di Gian Burrasca and by its television version, in which Rita Pavone sang the well-known song "Viva la pappa col pomodoro".[2]
