Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2/3 cup ricotta cheese

  • 2 medium plum tomatoes, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with vegetable cooking spray.

  2. Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 9 x 13-inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 2 (4 1/2 x 12-inch) rectangles. Roll in the edges to form a rim. Place the pastry rectangles on the baking sheet. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  3. Stir 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and ricotta cheese in a small bowl.

  4. Top each pastry rectangle with half the ricotta cheese mixture, half the tomato, half the basil and half the remaining Parmesan cheese.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden.

Tip

The kind of pan you use can affect baking times. A nonstick or dark glazed baking sheet may bake faster, so adjust your time and check pastry while baking.

If your Puff Pastry becomes soft and sticky while working with it, chill it in the fridge for a few minutes. Place in the refrigerator between rollings, too.

Always flip and place the cut side of the Puff Pastry down on the baking sheet.

You can thaw Puff Pastry in the fridge. Separate and place each sheet on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and defrost in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.

Inspiration

  • VIEW:
  • Great tomatoes always improve a dish. Try to buy them at a local farmer’s market if you can.

  • When you can, use fresh basil leaves. To retain flavor, tear instead of chopping them.
