To serve bread or not? I ask myself that a lot. Carbs or no carbs? Garlic bread goes perfect with a pasta meal. Grilled bread with a little olive oil and fresh rubbed garlic is perfect with a light salad. Cornbread is great with chili. And is BBQ really a BBQ without a side of garlic bread? I think I know that bread is good with any meal!
This Pesto Caprese Bread was just what we needed with our BBQ’d chicken and Orzo Salad dinner.
This is another of my “un-recipe” recipes. I used small dutch crutch rolls, but you can also use a single large loaf of french bread.
Easy peasy: Lightly butter bread. Spread on a generous layer of your favorite pesto (homemade or store-bought), top with sliced tomatoes, and slices of fresh mozzarella. Bake at 350* to heat bread, then broil for just a couple of minutes to get the cheese good and melted and the edges of your bread a little toasty.

I’m assuming the ‘to carb or not carb’ question was purely rhetorical since we all know the answer includes delicious carbs, especially those covered it pesto, tomatoes and cheese.
Delicious carbs is right!! You’ve got to splurge once in a while, right?

Yum, Renee! We have a ton of last summer’s pesto to use so I will be making this very soon! Pinned, Yummed and Stumbled!
Carol, Oh my gosh, don’t you love having homemade pesto in the freezer. I was disappointed in myself last year, I didn’t make nearly enough. I hope to do better this year!
I can’t grow enough basil! Love it, but unfortunately I already have a bumper crop of oregano …
I love having a garden full of basil. It freezes so well. Unfortunately last year mine didn’t do well. I’m hoping for better this year.
