Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta

Not just for caprese salads, this tried-and-true ingredient trio pairs well with Giada's two-bite bruschetta, which can be ready to eat in only 30 minutes. Before Giada adds the tomatoes and basil, she moves the cheese-topped toast to the oven for just a few minutes so the mozzarella becomes slightly melted.

Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

Giada gives you options here. You can make homemade pizza dough from scratch, but store-bought dough works just as well. Instead of spreading sauce over the dough, you bake fresh tomatoes right into it!
