Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich - caprese style grilled cheese with sparkling tomatoes, garlicky basil pesto, plenty of fresh mozzarella cheese all wrapped in prosciutto then grilled till crisp!

Adequate, so you’ve were given a yearning for a good old toasted cheese sandwich. What if I recommended a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich? My Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich is simply that!

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

In terms of flavour, think caprese grilled cheese – so fresh tomatoes, garlicky basil pesto plus lots of sparkling mozzarella cheese.

And my fancy, gourmet (exceptional clean!) twist – I wrap the sandwich in prosciutto before toasting it!

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich


  • 1 tbsp salted butter soft
  • 2 slices bread I use just plain, fresh white bread
  • 4-8 slices fresh mozzarella (see notes)
  • 4-6 slices tomato
  • 2 tsp basil pesto (see notes)
  • 2 slices prosciutto very thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper


  1. Butter each slice of bread on one side, all the way to the edges then set aside.
  2. Place one slice of prosciutto onto your work surface, then place one slice of buttered bread on top - butter-side down.
  3. Top the bread with sliced mozzarella, then spread the basil pesto (2 tsp) roughly over the cheese.
  4. Top with sliced tomato and season with salt and pepper, then top with an additional layer of sliced mozzarella if using.
  5. Place second slice of buttered bread on top, butter-side up.
  6. Place the second slice of prosciutto over the top of the sandwich, then fold the ends of prosciutto over each other to enclose.
  7. Heat a panini press, then grill sandwich until cheese has melted and the prosciutto is crisp.
