Pesto Caprese Grilled Cheese

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 4 mins
  • Total Time: 9 mins
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 2 slices bread (I used rye)
  • 1 tablespoon prepared basil pesto
  • 34 tomato slices (enough to cover bread slice)
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese (enough to cover bread slice)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Spread pesto on 1 bread slice. Top with tomatoes and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Season with pepper. Top with mozzarella slices and remaining slice of bread.
