Step 3: Assemble the Sandwich
I like to lay the tomato down first in a cascade manner where the top of each tomato rests on the bottom of the one above it. I this ensures total tomato coverage and allows me to stack a few more slices than if I just laid them down flat on the bread.
On top of the tomato goes the mozzarella cheese. Again, I like to use a cascading effect to maximize my cheese to area ratio.
After the cheese comes the basil. I like to add in a pretty liberal amount, so what is pictured below might be a bit more than you might like on your sandwich.
