Cut bread diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Lightly brush with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place on oiled grid over medium-high heat; grill until lightly toasted and grill marks appear, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. (Can also toast in oven.)
Place bread in serving basket; serve with sun-dried tomato mixture and cheese.
