An incredibly delicious appetizer or light snack. These crispy little bites have the perfect flavor combo of fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese, and crisp, buttery pastry.

what you need:

puff pastry dough

roma tomatoes

basil leaves

balsamic vinegar

whole milk mozzarella


Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. Using the top of a wine glass, cut out 9 circles per sheet of puff pastry.

Place the dough circles on the prepared baking sheet.


Using a paring knife, score an inner circle into each puff pastry, about 1/4 of an inch in. Use the tip of the knife to prick the center of each circle 2-3 times.


Add a slice of tomato on each circle and then drizzle 3 or 4 drops of balsamic vinegar onto each tomato slice.


Top each tomato slice with some chopped basil. Add a cube of mozzarella cheese to each tart.
