Bread, cheese, tomatoes, and pesto. There’s just no better combination in our book! This easy recipe takes just 10 minutes to prepare and 8-10 minutes to cook. If you’re short on time, you can use jarred pesto instead of making your own. While we love this recipe best on the grill, you can also make it in the oven by placing the bread direction on your oven rack. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
