Servings: 8 to 9 tarts
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17 1/2-ounce package), thawed
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
1 large plum tomato, thinly sliced
8 to 9 leaves fresh basil leaves
3 ounces (about 8 or 9 slices) fresh mozzarella, very thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
On a lightly floured surface, unfold the pastry. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 8 or 9 rounds; place rounds on the prepared baking sheet. Prick the pastry rounds all over with a fork. Sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon Parmesan. Bake rounds for 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
Top each tart with a slice of tomato, basil leaf and mozzarella slice. Bake for 10 minutes or until puffed and golden. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
