Roasted Sweet Mini Peppers with Burrata and Garlic-Basil Oil

This is a simple, yet good Summer appetizer. Nothing beats some roasted mini sweet peppers topped with some good ole garlic-basil oil and burrata. This is what makes this dish a show stopper that everyone in the family will enjoy. Not to mention, all that goodness is going on top of a toasted baguette. What makes me happy about this Summer treat, is that it can be made in the oven or on the grill. So you don’t even need to fire up the grill to make this tasty snack.

These look so lovely! I love the idea of using pizza dough. We make TJ pizza all the time and often have like half a bag of dough left. Next time we do, I'll make these for breakfast the next day. Thanks for sharing :)
