About this recipe: I had this in an Italian Restaurant close to home. This is my version. Make extra because these little treats disappear rather quickly.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 French baguette, cut into diagonal 1.5cm slices
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved
  • 6 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh Italian basil, julienned
  • 1 pound (450g) fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Brush the slices of bread lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking tray. Toast under the broiler for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Rub each crostini with a garlic clove for flavor.
  2. Place the tomatoes into a medium bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the crostini on a serving tray. Top each one with a slice of mozzarella cheese, cover with a spoonful of tomatoes, and garnish with fresh basil.
