Caprese Sandwich…my new favorite!

I’ve been eating a good amount of mozzarella and tomatoes as of late, it could be a problem. Really though, I made this sandwich three times last week.  You know me, the easier the better and who ever paired tomatoes, basil and mozzarella is my hero. I used a roasted Garlic  Italian bread and buttered both sides first and put in the toaster for a bit to make the bread nice and crispy. I added the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil and toasted it again. Viola!


Three Cheese & Basil Pizza

Man I love making homemade pizza!

I was originally going for a Margherita and my husband loves Ricotta so much that I decided to add that and then I said what the hell and added some shredded sharp. It was gooooood!

Italian Sandwich

I thought I would try something different. I’m reading up on Food Styling and Food Photography and they talk about styling a sandwich and tricks no one would think that goes into styling such a “simple” dish like folding the meat (which I forgot to do), using toothpicks to keep tomato and pickle in place (forgot to do that as well) oh and I forgot the onion but only due to the fact that I did not have any in the house. Man is it tough to style a sandwich! I don’t really think my sandwich holds any enticing, thought provoking qualities but I wanted to post it anyway…maybe one day I can look back on this sandwich and think “wow I have come a long way” and show you a deliciously stacked cold cut sandwich! Until then…
