Preheat conventional oven or toaster oven to 350°F. Mix together garlic and olive oil and spread over bread slices and place on a baking sheet.

Pat goat cheese into a 1/2-inch pancake and place in shallow baking dish. Ladle tomato sauce into dish to come up to top edge of cheese (do not cover the cheese with sauce). Bake, uncovered, until sauce begins to bubble at edges and cheese is hot, about 25 minutes. During last 10 minutes of baking, toast bread until golden brown. Garnish cheese with basil if using.
