Ingredients
  • Roasted tomatoes:
  • 6 small (about 1 1/4 pounds) roma tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pizza bites:
  • 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup jarred marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 5 fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Special equipment: 2-inch pastry cutter
Directions

To roast the tomatoes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Season the tomatoes with oregano, salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with oil and arrange them on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Roast until then are golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F when the tomatoes are roasted. Unfold 1 puff pastry sheet onto a clean cutting board. Prick the dough evenly, multiple times, with a fork. Using a 2-inch pastry cutter, cut out 12 circles and arrange them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with the second sheet of pastry. Bake until they are nicely puffed and golden, about 8 minutes.

To assemble: Cut the puffs in half. Spoon a generous teaspoon of marinara sauce into the bottom of half of the puffs and sprinkle with Parmesan. Put a roasted tomato on top of each followed by the basil and a sprinkling of the mozzarella. Top with the other puff pastry halves and arrange them on a baking sheet. Bake for another 5 minutes, giving the cheese time to melt. Transfer the bites to a serving platter and serve warm.
