  • 425 grams ready made puff pastry
  • 100 grams mozzarella cheese
  • 12 tsp sun-dried tomato pesto
  • milk to brush pastry edges
  • fresh basil leaves to garnish
  • assorted toppings optional (if desired)


  • Preheat a baking tray in the centre of your oven at 220 C/ 200 C fan/ gas mark 7.
  • Roll out your ready made puff pastry to a thickness of 1/4 inch and cut into 12 squares.
  • Arrange the squares, evenly spaced, on a sheet of baking paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully score a line 1 cm around the edge of each pastry square, taking care not to cut all the way through. Brush the edges with a little milk.
  • Spoon 1 teaspoonful of sun-dried tomato pesto onto the entre of each tart, top with your desired toppings and finish off with some mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or so on the pre-heated baking tray until the pastry is golden.
  • Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.
