Ingredients
  

  • 230 g pack ready rolled puff pastry round
  • 2 x 125g mozzarella balls
  • 3 medium tomatoes sliced
  • olive oil
  • seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • beaten egg
  • A few fresh basil leaves

Instructions
 

  • Score a circle about 1-2 cm on the pastry round, without cutting through.
  • Glaze with beaten egg and cook until golden at 200 C.
  • Push down the middle puffed part of the pastry with the back of a spoon.
  • Arrange the tomato and mozzarella alternately, starting with the outside.
  • Drizzle with olive oil, basil and seasoning.
  • Bake for a further 5-10 minutes until golden and then garnish with the fresh basil.

Notes

Swap 2 of the tomatoes for about 400g of sliced courgette. Roast them in the oven while the pastry is baking.
Use a mixture of cheeses such as emmental, feta or cheddar.
