8 slices white bread, crust trimmed off
¼ cup olive oil
4 oz cream cheese
2 basil leaves, chopped
¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
Fresh mozzarella ball, 8- ¼ inch slices
Tomato, 8- ¼ inch slices
Preheat the oven to 375.
Remove the crusts from the bread and using a rolling pin, gently press the slices of bread down flat until they are thin and almost doughy. Brush both sides of the bread with olive oil. Press the slices into a muffin tin or ramekin, to form a tart shell. Set aside.
In a small bowl, using a fork to combine, mix together the cream cheese, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper until smooth and creamy. Drop about a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture into the bottom of each tart. Top with a slice of tomato and a slice of mozzarella and a splash of olive oil. Bake the tarts until golden and crusty, 20-25 minutes depending on tart size.
