SUPER EASY Tomato "Pizza" Bites

There is really no need for me to give any specific measurements or even ingredients here since you can make these up as you go along. The suggestion to enjoy some just-picked  fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes is enough. The rest is up to you.

Tomato Pizza Bites

-Fresh picked (if you have the option) organic tomatoes
-Fresh basil leaves
-Shredded mozzarella (or vegan alternative)
-salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste
-1 dollop of pesto spread per tomato bite

1. Wash and slice each tomato widthwise. Don't cut the slices too thin. You want them to be sturdy.
2. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt and pepper on the tomatoes.
3. Place a dollop of pesto on each, followed by a sprinkle of cheese, a whole basil leaf and topped with more cheese.
4. Broil on low for approximately 5 minutes, until cheese begins to brown. 


These tomato bites make delicious and visually appealing appetizers. They are also great as a sandwich. Just spread some pesto on a bun and enjoy.
