This Easy Caprese Soup is full of tangy tomato flavor and finished with fresh mozzarella cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar for the ultimate gourmet comfort soup.

Caprese love has taken the world by storm over the past decade, thanks to blogs, Pinterest, and all those who can’t get enough of tomato, basil, and cheese. We love it as much as anyone else! In this recipe, we’ve taken all the classic flavors of caprese and turned them into a delicious soup. This is a hearty tomato soup base infused with fresh basil, topped with melted fresh mozzarella cheese and drizzled with vinaigrette. This is such a great soup!

Fire Roasted Tomatoes:

This recipe calls for canned fire roasted diced tomatoes. Fire roasting adds a lot of extra smokiness and we highly recommend it. If you want to make the soup base entirely from scratch and roast your own tomatoes, you can certainly follow this recipe!


Using fresh basil in this recipe is very important. Nothing beats the flavor of fresh basil and dried basil won’t cut it at all!


Using fresh mozzarella cheese in caprese soup is essential. You can use pre-sliced ​​fresh mozzarella if you want, but you should definitely avoid shredded mozzarella from the grocery store. Much of the success of caprese soup is due to the quality of the ingredients, so be sure to use good quality fresh mozzarella.

Do I have to puree Easy Caprese Soup?

In this recipe, we guide you through pureeing soup. If you want a thick tomato soup for a change, either partially puree it or let it thicken completely. When pureeing, you can use an immersion blender or transfer it to a regular blender. Remember to vent the mixer so that no pressure builds up. You don’t want tomato explosions!

2 bowls caprese soup, topped with vinaigrette

Storage and Reheating Instructions:

Store leftover soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in a skillet on the stovetop over medium-low heat until heated through.
