Look for a good quality whole wheat French baguette or Italian bread as your base, top it with fresh mozzarella and finish with tomatoes, basil and balsamic glaze. So good! Can be made on the grill, toaster oven or broiler.

  1. This was so good, and easy to make too! I will be making it again!

  2. I had to make this immediately so I did!!! I had everything except the French bread, so I made it with a hearty white sandwich bread. I spritzed it with olive oil spray before I topped it with cheese, and like another trader, drizzled the tomatoes with olive oil, coarse salt and pepper. Nearly an instant lunch and so good!!!

  3. Loved this!  Complemented it with a roasted corn salad with basil and feta

  4. We made this last night, but on ciabatta sandwich rolls. They were amazing! Definitely going into a regular spot on the menu.

  5. Are all these recipes in the cookbook?

  6. Delisious, so simple to make, and quick.

  7. OH MY GOSH-THIS SANDWICH IS DELICIOUS!!!!!! I used an awesome, thinly sliced italian bread and Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze, which is the BEST!! I will make this over and over again. It is a show-stopper both in its beautiful appearance and its utter deliciousness!

  8. I just had this today!! It’s so good!! I love caprese and bruschetta, so of course I also loved this one. The only change I made was to drizzle extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkled some sea salt and freshly ground pepper. 

    I made my own balsamic glaze from a fig balsamic vinegar I purchased from a specialty shop on Pawley’s Island. You may also purchase balsamic glaze from your local supermarket.

  9. This was so good. I was incredibly happy to find a pizza recipe to substitute my family’s “takeout” night. Thank you so much! 

  10. Is the balsamic glaze from a bottle or homemade?

  11. Where does one find these whole wheat french bread baguette? I’ve never seen them, or maybe never looked. I only have a Walmart , Meijer and Family Fare (spartan store) to shop at.. Could I bake my own??

  12. Hi Gina,

    How would you recommend cooking this on the grill?

    Thanks! 

  13. What is balsamic glaze? Do you have a recipe?

  14. What. balsamic glaze do you use??
