Preheat oven to 375° F. Place pancetta on a baking pan and cook 5 to 7 minutes or until it is crisp. Remove from pan and break into small pieces.
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-to-high heat. Drizzle cut side of lettuce and the cherry tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the gem lettuce cut side down and grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until lettuce is marked and slightly wilted. Remove from grill and transfer to plates.
Grill tomatoes, taking care not to let them slip through the grill grate. (Note: cherry tomatoes can be easily grilled in a grill pan).
