Heat olive oil and butter in a large saute pan. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add Arborio rice and stir to coat each grain with oil. Add saffron and stir until fragrant. Add white wine, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring continuously. When the white wine has cooked off, add chicken stock, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring until risotto is creamy but rice grains are still intact. Stir in Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
Cut tops off tomatoes. Hollow out tomatoes using a scoop or large spoon. Fill each tomato with approximately 3/4 cup risotto. Arrange in a hotel pan and bake in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.
Remove tomatoes from oven and top each with two Bocconcino halves. Place under broiler for about 5 minutes until cheese melts. Serve each tomato on a bed of mixed greens.
