This Tomato Puff Pastry recipe is the perfect appetizer, snack, or light lunch! Made with less than ten ingredients, it requires minimal prep time, bakes in under 30 minutes, and is bursting with flavor to satisfy even the pickiest crowd!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the puff pastry sheet on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork to poke holes all over the puff pastry.
Slice the tomatoes, and place them on a paper towel. Sprinkle salt over the tomato slices, and let them sit for 5 minutes to release some of the juices. After 5 minutes, pat them dry with a paper towel.
Spread the pesto evenly over the puff pastry, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Arrange the sliced tomatoes on top of the pesto. Scatter the fresh Mozzarella pearls over the tomatoes, and sprinkle the shredded Mozzarella over the entire tart.
Bake the tart in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the puff pastry turns golden and crispy, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove the tart from the oven, and drizzle additional pesto over the top. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Slice the tart and serve it warm as a delicious appetizer or a light meal.
