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

Directions

Special equipment:
2-inch pastry cutter
  1. 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. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
