Cherry tomatoes : I used these small tomatoes for the recipe because their taste is very sweet, they hold together well once cut (even returned to the pan).

Buffalo Mozzarella : I chose the buffalo milk version because it is much better for my taste than the classic version. You can also use creamy buratta instead if you wish.

Rye or country bread : here we want large slices to place the garnish. Choose the bread that makes you happy. It should be sliced ​​neither too thin nor too thick. As a bonus: rub it with garlic for even more flavor!

Fresh basilic : a nice bouquet of basil to make the pesto. It is really essential here! It is also added before serving the bruschetta.

Pine nuts : they are used in the pesto to give texture, and also to decorate the bruschetta before tasting.

Parmesan cheese : the essential for the pesto! Instead of the already grated Parmesan, I advise you to grate it yourself, it will have much more flavor.

Ail : we need it for the pesto, it is used to spice it up. You can also rub the bread with it (optional).

Olive oil, salt, pepper : for seasoning.

NB: for a meat version, you can add shredded country ham as a garnish.
