  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(R) Diced Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar, Basil & Olive Oil in place of whole tomatoes. Or, Hunt's(R) Petite Diced Tomatoes may be used--requires no slicing or dicing!
  • Find great prepared pesto in your grocer's refrigerated section.

I made this with my 5 year old daughter. She loved making it and the whole family enjoyed eating it! We'll definitely make it again.
