Rinse the tomatoes and cut them into slices, removing the stem portions. Slice the mozzarella balls. Place the slices of mozzarella and tomatoes to fit the plate, alternating the slices as if you were to cover the center of the plate with a roof of shingles. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with the olive oil.
Serve garnished with fresh basil leaves.
