Mozzarella Bruschetta

by Erin @ Food Doodles on August 11, 2020

This mozzarella bruschetta is incredibly simple but packs a ton of flavor. It can be made in the oven or on the grill. It’s also easy to make dietary-friendly (gluten-free, vegan, paleo, etc).

This recipe, along with my Italian Tomato Salad, is our favorite use of tomatoes. If we went crazy buying tomatoes on sale, this is what we do with them.

It’s quick, easy and so very satisfying. It’s especially great if you’ve got the grill on. Admittedly, we usually use the oven, because it’s turned on way more often than our grill, but bruschetta is even better grilled.

This bruschetta could also be called Caprese bruschetta. Lots of mozzarella, fresh basil and tomatoes. 

Authentic bruschetta calls for just olive oil, bread, garlic, tomatoes, basil and salt. It can vary a little from region to region. Sicilian bruschetta, for example, might use oregano instead of basil.
