Caprese Bruschetta

  • Author: caroline

If you love crusty bruschetta, or you are a sucker for a classic Italian Caprese salad then you’ll love this Caprese bruschetta combination! Sweet diced Caprese on crunchy bread. Perfect for a snack, canape or starter!

The default recipe makes around 8 bruschettas. 


  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 8 mozzarella balls
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 loaf crusty bread (such as bruschetta)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Wash and quarter the cherry tomatoes and slice the mozzarella balls into quarters. 
  2. Chiffonade the basil by rolling along the length of the leaf into a cigar shape and then slicing thinly.
  3. Mix the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil in a bowl with the olive oil. Season to taste. 
  4. Slice the bread into thin pieces and place on a baking tray. Drizzle over the olive oil. Bake in the oven for 6-8 minutes until crispy. Mound the Caprese mixture over the top and serve. 


  1. To chiffonade basil first roll it longways into a cigar type shape. Then slice it with a sharp knife down the length into small pieces (see main recipe post for a photo)
  2. You can use diced tomatoes (deseed first) or large mozzarella balls chopped into small pieces instead
  3. Some fun additions you can include are diced artichoke hearts, chilli flakes, feta (instead of the mozzarella) or some diced peach
  4. Balsamic glaze is the perfect pairing for this recipe – drizzle over the top before serving
