Mozzarella and Prosciutto Sandwiches with Tapenade

['1 1/2 teaspoons chopped anchovy fillet', '1 teaspoon capers (preferably salt-packed), rinsed, chopped', '1 garlic clove, minced', '1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel', '1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange peel', '1 1/4 cups Niçoise olives, pitted, divided', '1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for brushing and drizzling', '1 tablespoon (packed) chopped fresh basil plus 24 whole leaves for garnish', '24 basil leaves', '2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice', '6 6-inch-long pieces ficelle or narrow baguette, split horizontally in half', '6 thin prosciutto slices', '2 8-ounce balls fresh mozzarella cheese', 'drained', 'cut into 1/3-inch-thick slices']

Combine first 5 ingredients in mortar; mash with pestle to paste. Add 1 cup olives and mash to coarse paste. Chop remaining 1/4 cup olives and stir into mixture. Mix in 1/4 cup olive oil, chopped basil, and lemon juice. Season tapenade with pepper. (Can be made 2 weeks ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Brush cut sides of ficelle with additional olive oil. Place 1 prosciutto slice on bottom half of each ficelle, then top with mozzarella slices, dividing equally. Spoon tapenade over each. Sprinkle with pepper; drizzle lightly with olive oil. Garnish with basil leaves. Cover with top halves of ficelle.
