Caprese Bombs

These Caprese Bombs are just the bomb, pardon the pun.

Caprese Bombs made with 5 ingredients, I kid you not. The recipe makes 20 and they flew off the plate before I could take proper pictures. The kids (and dad) absolutely loved them. A traditional Caprese Salad is a salad made with fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil. The three colors of the Italian flag. So, that makes my Caprese Bombs Italian hybrids, I think.

Caprese Bombs

South Africa’s most loved Tomato Sauce is once again turning up the magic with the launch of two 700 ml Limited Edition collectable bottles. These Limited Edition painted bottles will be available in two designs. The ‘Crammed Full of Tomatoes’ design, which celebrates the fact that ALL GOLD Tomato Sauce is crammed full of tomatoes, and free of thickeners, colourants and preservatives. The second design, the ‘Crammed Full of Local Flava’ version, embraces ALL GOLD’s tradition, which is intrinsic to our rich local South African heritage. The design includes classic South African-isms, favourite foods and colourful greetings that South Africans from all backgrounds will identify with and enjoy.

Caprese Bombs

makes 20


1 kg store-bought bread dough ( ask your local baker)

250 ml All Gold Tomato Sauce

250 g mozzarella cheese – cut into 2 x 2 cm cubes

fresh basil leaves

750 ml oil for frying


Divide the dough in 20 even-sized balls. Use a rolling pin or use your hands to flatten each ball into a round “mini pizza”- about 4-5 cm in diameter. Use your finger to wet the edges of the dough with water. Place a cube of cheese in the middle, top with a little tomato sauce and lastly a basil leaf. Bring the edges together and give it a twist to ensure the filling does not leak out during frying. Repeat the process until all the “bombs are finished. I use baking paper with a little flour to place the “bombs” on while I finish the batch.

Heat the oil in the pan or wok and fry the bombs until golden brown. Serve with more tomato sauce, fresh basil, fresh tomatoes and grated parmesan as an optional extra.

Cook’s Notes –  This is perfect for lunchtime when the children come back from school, Sunday-night movie time or for the men watching rugby.

    Hoekom All Gold Tamatie sous…. daar is geen gelyke. All Gold Tamatie sous op alles selfs op n brood korsie sonder botter…. en in stew as tamaties te min is….

    I just love the taste of all gold tomato sauce. No other brand tastes the same. You can actually taste the tomato in the sauce. Nothing else with a fried egg or slap chips for me

    There are too many favourites to mention but I will not be able to eat fish cakes or French toast without All Gold Tomato Sauce!

    WHEN MY SON WAS BORN 47 years ago he had allergies,we were advised he was not to have anything with preservatives or colourings and he has not had any other sauce.He married 19 years ago and in their household All Gold goes on the table and eaten on anything and everything.

    Ek kan glad nie mash en wors eet sonder All Gold se tamatiesous nie.
    ‘n Snoek toebroodjie met tamatiesous is ook ‘n wenner!

    Fried eggs on toast with a good dollop
    of All Gold Tomato Sauce. It’s those simple pleasures in life that are the most delicious.

    Maybe a little bit boring but a nice soft fried egg with some All Gold tomato sauce mixed wth the yellow of the egg with bacon and toast or just plain old “slap chips” with the tomato sauce.

    fry one chopped onion and lots of crushed garlic and chopped up chicken breasts and add one or two cups All Gold Tomato sauce salt and black pepper and serve on cooked noodles or rice topped with grated cheddar cheese

    I love All Gold on my French toast 🙂 I know other people use golden syrup or maple, but i love traditional french toast with a lot of tomato sauce, and if it is All Gold, it tastes even better…

    Met warm aartappel skyfies en op vars brood met net botter en dan natuurlik All Gold Tamatiesous. Lekkerrrrrrrr.

    All Gold Tamatiesous gee net daai EKSTRA lekker smaak aan Cowboykos; Bredies souse en doopsouse. Ek het altyd ‘n eksta bottel in die kas.

    My mom makes a dish that we call tomato sauce chicken. It’s basically chicken pieces baked in All Gold tomato sauce, with a few other ingredients. So Yum, and warms you up in the winter. A family favourite!!
    My other favourite All Gold tomato sauce on slap tjips 🙂
    My kitchen rule states 3 items will always be in my kitchen, course salt, course black pepper and All Gold tomato sauce.

  17. Marionette 18 September 2017 at 6:20 pm #

    We are NEVER without All Gold tomato sauce in our home. We use it for sauces, relish, marinades, tomato bredie, sweet & sour chicken and our favourite onion and tomato relish with barbeque and pap, scrambled or friedv eggs,and my personal favourite…….All Gold tomato sauce on buttered homemade bread….yum yum. Or a slice of toast topped with All Gold tomato sauce, covered with cheese and placed under the grill!! Pure bliss!! What is a home without All Gold Tomato Sauce??
