Peach and Tomato Toast with Mozzarella & Basil

Step aside, Avocado Toast, there’s a new and improved Toast in town! While there is absolutely nothing wrong with Avocado Toast, whatsoever (spoken by a true Avocado Toast enthusiast), why not step outside of the box a bit and give some other ingredients some time to shine during your weekend Brunch? Cue, Peach and Tomato Toast with Mozzarella & Basil.

Peach and Tomato Toast Close up

Peaches AND Tomatoes living in harmony? It sounds odd, but stay with me. Not only do the duo work well together, but they shine. Peaches and Tomatoes are both in peak season at the end of summer, which makes this a perfect time for you to make your way to the Farmer’s Market or Produce section nearest you.

Example of how the Tomatoes and Peaches should be sliced

This is another one of those recipes that does not require you to abide by the book 100%. For example, I favor Heirloom Tomatoes, but you can use whichever Tomatoes suit your fancy or happen to be in your refrigerator, just make sure that they are very ripe! The same rules apply for the bread. I used Dave’s Killer Organic 21 Grain and Seed Bread (one of my favorites) that Rollin’ Oats has a large display and variety of , but any bread will suffice!

Additionally, there’s room for customization with honey, too. I chose to use Raw and Unprocessed Florida Honey, which Rollin’ Oats also carries a large variety of, among plenty of other honey varietals, like Manuka. For this dish, if it drizzles well, it’ll work well!

The Toast can also be adjusted to meet various dietary restrictions and lifestyles. Use Gluten Free Bread, leave out the cheese and butter or use Vegan alternatives, swap out Honey for Agave, and so on.

This Toast can be made year-round, of course, but Tomatoes and Peaches are in their prime during late summer.

  • 2 Heirloom Tomatoes Ripe and sliced into thin rounds. If you can't find Heirlooms, any ripe Tomato will do.
  • 1 Peach Ripe, sliced into thin half moons
  • 1 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella Sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 Handful Fresh Basil large and small leaves
  • Raw Honey Use any Honey that you'd like, as long as it drizzles well.
  • 4 Slices Bread Organic is preferred, as always.
  • 2 Tbsp Grass-fed Butter Such as Vital Farms, but any butter/Ghee will suffice, just make sure it's at room temperature
  • Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter each piece of Bread on one side and (carefully!) place the bread in the oven directly on the oven racks (in my experience, this allows for evenly crisp toast). Toast for 20-25 minutes- the toast should be golden and crisp all over.
  • Carefully remove the bread from the oven with kitchen tongs. Immediately top each piece of Toast with Mozzarella, a few large Basil leaves, Peach and Tomato slices, a generous drizzling of Honey, a few small Basil leaves and a sprinkle of salt.
