Tomato Mozzarella Muffins Recipe

Tomato Mozzarella Muffins Recipes

Ingredients :

4 large, ripe tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato paste

8 pitted black olives, halved

4 muffins

4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tbsp butter

1 tbsp chopped basil

50g mozzarella cheese, sliced

salt and pepper

fresh basil leaves, to garnish


1 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp clear honey

Method :

Cut a cross shape at the base of each tomato. Plunge the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water - this will make the skin easier to peel. After a few minutes, pick up each tomato with a fork and peel away the skin. Chop the tomato flesh and mix it with the tomato paste and olives.

Cut each off the muffins in half to give eight thick pieces. Toast the muffin halves under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes until they are golden. Mix the garlic, butter and basil together and spread onto each muffin half. Top with the tomato mixture. Mix the dressing ingredients and drizzle over each muffin. Arrange the mozzarella cheese on top and season.

Return the muffins to the grill for 1-2 minutes until the cheese melts and serve at once, garnished with the fresh basil leaves. These delicious mini pizzas, using muffins as a ready made base, can be prepared and cooked in just half an hour. Use balsamic vinegar instead of the lemon juice for an authentic Italian flavor.
