  1. Cut the mozzarella into 4 equal slices (approximately 1/2-inch thick).
  2. Beat the eggs with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Add prosciutto slices and basil leaves on top of 2 of the mozzarella pieces. Top with a little tomato sauce. Cover with the other mozzarella slices, forming a sandwich.
