Cut the loaf of bread crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Toast the bread slices until they are golden brown. Lightly rub the toasted bread with the garlic clove, then rub the tomato, cut side down, thoroughly into the toasts. Top the toasts with a couple of slices of Ibérico ham, drizzle the olive oil over the toasts, and season with a few flakes of coarse sea salt and pepper.
