One of my favorite salads is Caprese Salad. I was going to a dinner party and my friend asked me to whip up something fun to bring. I was trying to think of something different and fun and decided I was going to try to make a Caprese bread. I’d never made it and didn’t have a recipe, so I just threw some things together and it ended up being so tasty. If you like Caprese salad and crescent rolls, then you need to run to the store, get the ingredients and make this now!


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Handful fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 oz mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • ½ carton cherry tomatoes, divided
  • 4 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons Italian herbs

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, crescent rolls (cut them into small balls), Parmesan cheese, Italian herbs and minced garlic. Arrange them in a Bundt pan.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stuff cubed cheese and tomatoes in crevices of dough. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Top with fresh basil and serve. Makes 1 loaf.
