  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 (14-1/2 ounce can) whole peeled tomatoes, drained

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped

  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

  • 10 leaf basil leaves, torn


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spread each sheet of puff pastry onto a piece of lightly floured parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll pastry into even rectangles. Lift pastry (with parchment paper) onto baking sheets.

  2. Pierce puff pastry all over with a fork. Beat egg with water in a small dish; brush pastry all over with egg wash.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.?

  4. Meanwhile, pulse tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon of the olive oil, garlic, and a pinch of salt together in a food processor until pureed.

  5. Carefully press pastry crusts down to deflate them. Spread half the tomato sauce evenly to within about an inch of edges of each crust; drizzle with remaining olive oil. Top evenly with mozzarella cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

  6. Bake until cheese is melted and crust edges are golden, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the oven and scatter basil leaves over the top. Slice and serve hot.
