  • Author: Amanda
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings 1x


  • 1 loaf Sourdough Bread
  • 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated
  • 2-3 tbs Basil Pesto
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 4 oz of fresh mozzarella
  • 8 Fresh Basil leaves
  • 2 oz of prosciutto (optional is you want to keep it vegetarian)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. While the oven preheats, make the balsamic glaze.
  2. In a small sauce pan, heat the balsamic vinegar over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the vinegar has thickened and reduced by half. (About 3 minutes).
  3. Next, spread the garlic and basil pesto on each half of the loaf in a thin even layer. Add the tomatoes, mozzarella, and prosciutto. Drizzle the balsamic glaze on top.
  4. Toast in the oven for 15 minutes. Or until the bread is golden brown in color and the cheesy is nice and bubbly.
  5. Pull out of the oven to cool slightly. Add the fresh basil leaves.
  6. Enjoy!
