Ready in just minutes, this delightful, easy tomato and fresh mozzarella toast has a layer of fresh pesto that gives it just the right enhancement of flavor. It’s so, so good!

Start with sour dough bread and lightly toast it.

Spread some fresh pesto on top, then layer the fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.

Hit it with some salt and pepper and a drizzle of balsamic glaze and you are going to be in heaven, my friends.

I buy my pesto at Costco or Sam’s Club and the Balsamic Glaze at pretty much any grocery store.

Hope you get a chance to try it.

PS…even my teenagers love it. 🙂
