I was looking for something for a nice light lunch, these fit the bill and mmm they were delicious. I used light mozzarella cheese and cus my basil plant was getting sparse i just used one basil leaf on each of 6 slices. I used Tobasco Chipotle sauce for the hot sauce drops, mmm mmm good, these will be on my list when i get a craving for Caprese!!
