Caprese Tarts

These Caprese tarts feature flaky pastry topped with garlic, melted Mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and juicy tomatoes!


  • 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, defrosted per package instructions (such as Pepperidge Farms)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (if you love garlic, you may want to use two)
  • ¾ cup shredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil leaves, or more if desired
  • 1.5 oz sliced or diced tomatoes, I used sliced grape tomatoes


  • On a clean, dry surface sprinkle a small amount of flour to prevent sticking and lay down your sheet of defrosted puff pastry. Using a rolling pin, roll the pastry into a 10”x14” rectangle of even thickness. Place in the refrigerator until needed.
  • In a small skillet, bring the olive oil to medium heat. Add the garlic and allow garlic to cook for about a minute. Remove the garlic and oil to a small side dish to cool.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place the rolled pastry onto a cutting board and using a knife (or a pizza cutter works wonderfully for this!), cut the dough into 12 equal pieces (3 sections lengthwise and 4 widthwise). Place the pastry sections a little bit apart on your parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the garlic and oil across the center of each pastry piece. Top the oil with a tablespoon of Mozzarella per piece, then add the sliced basil and tomato. Make sure you leave an edge around the toppings on each piece.
  • Preheat the oven to 400. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to ensure the pastry is still a bit chilled. Transfer the sheet to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until pastry is golden and cheese is melted.
