Tomato Mozzarella Pesto Crostini

Ingredients
  • ½ baguette
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup pesto
  • 1 cup Black Diamond Mozzarella, grated
  • handful fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
Preparation
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Slice the baguette on a diagonal to ensure maximum surface for toppings.

  8. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until cheese has melted and is oozing.
  9. Remove from broiler and top with the warm tomato halves, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and finish with a garnish of basil (chopped or whole small leaves).
