Prosciutto Mozzarella Crostini

    I was inspired to make this appetizer after trying something similar in a local restaurant. It turned out to be fantastic. The secret of good crostini is in the good and fresh ingredients. This means good quality olive oil, sea salt, fresh mozzarella, fresh bread and believe it or not, oregano as well. I have tried making this recipe many times and if you want your guests to be impressed you have to use the good stuff. In this photo you can tell I used kalamata olive baguette and it was wonderful. I hope you enjoy this killer recipe as much as I do. 

Makes 8 - 10 slices 
Time: 10 minutes 


8 - 10 thin slices of french baguette 
8 - 10 slices of prosciutto (preferably smoked)
8 - 10 slices of fresh mozzarella (in water is the best)
extra virgin olive oil 
freshly ground black pepper 
sea salt 


Turn oven to broil on high. Brush both sides of bread with olive oil and place on a cookie sheet or a pan. Sprinkle with crushed pepper and sea salt. Broil for a minute and a half. Flip the slices of bread over and broil for another minute. Place slices onto a serving plate. Layer the mozzarella and the prosciutto. Drizzle with olive oil generously. Sprinkle with sea salt and oregano to taste (if you are using smoked prosciutto you won't need as much salt since it already has a strong flavor). The crostini are ready to be served.
