Caprese & Prosciutto Crostini with Lemon Aioli

I love mixing up easy and quick appetizers that pack a punch with flavor. This Caprese & Prosciutto Crostini with Lemon Aioli has all the ingredients needed for a delicious bite! I’ve teamed up with Bellucci, an organic 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil to bring you this tasty recipe.

Bellucci’s mission is to preserve the heritage of 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and its production on small family farms. The company is made up of majority owners of the brand. As a co-operative of Italian growers, Bellucci takes extra virgin olive oil very seriously. They are very proud to be 100% Italian grown, produced and traceable to the grove, down to the trees.The dark glass bottle protects the extra virgin olive oil from light and has an easy pour spout which I found to be super helpful.

The best part about this recipe is that it comes together so quickly. It’s as simple as gathering your ingredients, mixing up a little aioli and toasting your bread.

I first chopped up my basil and tomatoes. I found mozzarella cheese that was already sliced. Score! I took my prosciutto and separated each slice then rolled it up for each piece. You can use a full slice or cut it in half then roll it up. You don’t want too much because then it will be chewy.

Slice your baguette into 1/2 inch pieces, top with Bellucci Extra Virgin Olive Oil then toast for about 5 minutes. You don’t want these too crispy, just a little toasty on top. You can drizzle right on top or paint it on with a kitchen brush.

To make the lemon aioli just add a squeeze of half a lemon to 2 tablespoons of mayo. I added a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil to the aioli to thin it out a little too. Mix in your salt and add to the top of the toasted baguette slices. Add your slice of mozzarella, prosciutto roll, tomatoes, basil and drizzle with a little more extra virgin olive oil to finish it off. These are so delicious and your friends will love you if you bring these to the next get-together!
