Not to be confused with thick Sicilian caponeta made with eggplant, Neopolitan caponeta originated with local sailors who tossed tomatoes with a dash of seawater with the ship's store of hardtack. We have added cucumbers and capers to this simple tomato and bread salad, using baked leftover pizza dough torn into bite sized chunks, and accented the flavors with tuna. Toasted crusty bread also makes a fine salad, but it's worth keeping this recipe in mind when you have extra dough after a pizza-making frenzy.
