Step By Step  

Use up those garden tomatoes and serve these for your next gathering!

As prepared by Half Baked Harvest,

If there’s one thing I love about summer, it’s caprese.

I make SO many variations on caprese all summer long. It really is one of my favorites, especially when using homegrown tomatoes and basil!

Caprese is traditionally three main ingredients: tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, garnished with olive oil, salt and pepper on top. Effortless, healthy and delicious, it really doesn’t get any better (or easier). It’s always a hit when served at summer parties!

Today I made simple caprese pizza bites—melted mozzarella over perfectly baked pizza dough and topped with fresh tomatoes and basil. YUM!! Melted cheese and pizza dough is always a hit, and when paired with fresh basil and tomatoes—definite crowd pleaser!

Tips  

To make these ahead of time, prebake the pizza triangles without any cheese. Allow to cool and then top with cheese + tomatoes. Just before serving, drizzle each pizza with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top off with fresh basil leaf.
