Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Unfold puff pastry sheet onto lightly floured surface; roll out to 12-inch square. Crimp edges; place on prepared baking sheet.
  2. Spread pesto evenly over puff pastry. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; add tomato slices in a single layer. Finish by topping evenly with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  3. Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired. For small bites, cut into 16 pieces. Serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Tips
  • Garnishing with fresh basil adds another layer of taste, plus taste-tempting aromatics.
  • Wow guests with this simple yet upscale ‘small bite' appetizer. For variation, use Hunt's® Diced Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar, Basil & Olive Oil in place of whole tomatoes. Or, Hunt's® Petite Diced Tomatoes may be used--requires no slicing or dicing!
  • Find great prepared pesto in your grocer's refrigerated section.

I like to use fresh tomatoes thinly sliced instead of canned. They overlap on the top of the crust. I have also added thinly sliced onion (think Vadalia or red) and bleu cheese crumbles. I will make this for an upcoming class reunion with all these toppings in strips on a sheet pizza so I need to bake only one, but will have many options on that one.
