Caprese Pesto Garlic Bread

I've had this on my Pinterest for a while, but I didn't realize there was no recipe attached. I figured that it was a pretty simple concept and would be easy to make, so this is my version. I served this as a side dish with  Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Noodles and Spaghetti

Inspired by this Tumblr Picture.

-Loaf of garlic bread (my grocery store sells fresh garlic bread that just needs baked)
-1/4 cup pesto
-4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
-1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced

Cook the garlic bread for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Once the bread is slightly cooked, top with the pesto, thinly sliced mozzarella and sliced cherry tomatoes. Put the bread back in the oven and turn up the heat on the oven in order to broil the bread for 3-4 minutes. 

This was amazing! I love the traditional flavors of caprese and adding them to garlic bread was ingenious. The pesto + melted cheese + fresh tomatoes were all perfection. Dave was incredibly happy with this, he ate most of it, so I'm not sure how well it would keep because we had no leftovers.
