Caprese Crostini al Forno | Baked Caprese Crostini

This super easy antipasto is essentially an open-faced panino. A panino is a sandwich cooked on a panino press. My version is much easier and contains half the calories and carbs, which means more vino 😉

I love to pair this crispy crostini with some chilled bubbles like Centanni’s 100% Passerina Charmat Brut from the Le Marche region.

1 Loaf of Bread, sliced into 1/2 inch thick, I like to use Ciabatta

3 tablespoons EVOO

2 Ripe Tomatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick

10 Slices of Mozzarella, about a 1/4 inch thick

Fresh Basil Leaves, rinsed and dried, to garnish


Preheat the oven to 550 degrees.
Lightly toast the bread. I use a toaster to speed up the process so I do not have to wait for the oven to preheat.
Drizzle some EVOO on each slice.
Cover each slice with mozzarella and tomatoes.
Place the crostini on a baking sheet and bake until the cheese is melted.
Serve immediately.
