Slice zucchini in 1/4 slices longwise. Brush olive oil on both sides and grill until beginning to brown.
Slice bread in half length wise. Toast under broiler until slightly brown. Remove immediately, brush with olive oil then rub with peeled garlic clove. Season with Italian seasoning.
Put basil then zucchini on bottom half of bread. Cover with half the tomato and mozzarella slices. Layer top half of bread with remaining tomato and mozzarella. Put under broiler until the cheese starts to bubble but not burn.
Remove from oven, sprinkle with more Italian seasoning and layer one half with crispy lettuce. With a hand on each half, close the sandwich quickly and press down on a flat surface to marry both sides. Slice and serve. Feeds two hungry college boys or 3-4 adults.
