More About This Recipe

  • 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!
