I love paula Deen she is the best. Ms Deen hasn't done what others has done and have got away with it. I don't think the punishment fit the crime as a black woman I think the punishment was to harsh. please bring her back. Who they need to take off tv is Bill O'Reilly.

These are so delicious!! But I agree with the review below....I also cook the puff pastry almost completely before adding the mozzerella and tomato because the first time I made them the other way, the pastry was soggy!

I use this recipe for nearly every appetizer party that I throw. I do cook the puffed pastry almost the full amount before adding the toppings instead of just 5 minutes. I also pat and salt the tomatoes to much that they are crazy dry or they absorb all the way through the puff pastry. I then add a little extra parmesan cheese and chopped basil to the top with some cracked pepper for decoration. But the overall recipe is a standout among other dishes and great for my vegetarian friends!
