Caprese Crustini

Trish told me about this delicious and flavorful appetizer. It's an easy variation on a simple caprese salad. You have your fresh tomatoes and your soft mozzarella cheese, but instead of using fresh basil leaves, just top each tomato with a little pesto sauce. It's SO tasty! Your guests will love it!
Thanx Trish!

Italian bread
fresh tomatoes
basil pesto sauce
fresh mozzarella cheese

Place sliced bread on a baking sheet and place under broiler for a minute or two, just until lightly golden. Flip them over, and place them back under the broiler to toast the other side. Top each one with a slice of tomato, a tsp of pesto sauce and slices of mozzarella cheese. How easy is that? Enjoy!

You can use store bought pesto or make Chris's Pesto Sauce (it's really yummy!). After you assemble the crustini, you can drizzle each one with a little olive oil, if you like.
For another favorite variation, try my Oven Roasted Caprese Salad!
