"What a great and easy snack! We happened to have fresh mozzarella, so we cut slices of that and put it over the tomato. I also didn't have fresh basil so just sprinkled some dried basil on top. I also used regular mayo because that's what we had. LOVED this, I will definitely do this again!"

"I absolutely love this recipe. I have shared it with others and they started to make it too. I use McCormick Perfect Pinch Basil and Garlic in place of the fresh basil."

"Great after school snack for the toaster oven that my daughter is allowed to use! I use english muffins, bagel thins, whole wheat hamburger buns or a 8" flour tortilla! I use plain strained yogurt to replace the mayonaise with some garlic, salt, pepper and chives in it, and I have used ricotta cheese as a replacement. Holds everyone over until supper time! There are so many versions that you can use!"

"We use sandwich thins/bagel thins for this one. I like that I can use this for some of us, and make little pizzas in a similar fashion for the kids."

"I serve a variation of this on puff pastry. My kids consider it "pizza". I don't use mayonnaise, I use pesto instead."
