Baked Mozzarella

One new recipe for you, to be tested this weekend. Can you smell the mozzarella? Hmmm yummy=)

Ingredients (Serves 2):

  • 8 ounce package of fresh mozzarella or smoked mozzarella, sliced
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven broiler.
  2. Grease a small ovenproof dish with a little extra virgin olive oil. Layer half of the mozzarella, then tomatoes, then garlic, then the rest of the mozzarella. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Place on the middle rack under your broiler for 5-7 minutes or until the mozzarella is melted and bubbly around the edges. Serve hot.
  4. When we were served this in Italy we just ate it straight out of the dish it was served in and it was delicious. But if you are not as obessed with mozzarella as I am, this is also great when served with a few toasted baguette slices. Also, this dish is best when it is kept hot otherwise the mozzarella starts to get hard, so try to find a dish that can keep the heat. Enjoy!
