Tomato and Mozzarella Oven Bake

Tomato and Mozzarella Oven Bake

This is a great starter dish with the rich umami flavor of the ingredients. Because you bake it at a high temperature the sweetness of the tomato increases and the mozzarella melts to make a great dish.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Mozzarella cheese
1/2 packet
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
to taste
Salt, black pepper
to taste


1. Slice the tomato and mozzarella.
2. Place the tomato and mozzarella on top of each other in a heat resistant dish and drizzle the olive oil on top. Rip basil leaves and place on top.
3. Bake in a oven for about 15 minutes and you're done. If you don't have fresh basil, sprinkle dried basil on top.

Story Behind this Recipe

Caprese is delicious, but I love melted mozzarella cheese.
