Recipe Tips

Food FactsFresh mozzarella cheese can be found in the specialty cheese section of most grocery stores. It comes in a variety of forms, including small, medium and large balls, and sliced or unsliced logs. While we used the small balls, cut in half, to prepare this recipe, any of the other forms of cheese will work equally as well.

Make it EasyThese Caprese RITZwiches are equally delicious without melting the cheese. Just top 6 crackers with cheese, tomatoes and basil and cover with remaining crackers. Easy and delicious!

Special ExtraTop hot cheese-topped crackers evenly with 1-1/2 tsp. pesto before covering with remaining ingredients as directed.
