- Gluten Free Puff Pastry
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Start by preheating the oven to 200°C (392°F).
Line a baking tray with parchment paper and unroll the puff pastry over it. Cut it into squares, each measuring 5 cm, using a wheel cutter.
Cut the tomatoes into thin slices and set aside.
In a small bowl mix together the chilies, paprika, salt, and oil. Brush the entire surface of the pastry sheet with the oil and spices mix.
Place a tomato slice on each of the pastry squares and sprinkle with basil.
Repeat for every square of pastry.
Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for 10-15 or until the pastry has turned lightly golden.
Remove and place each square on a plate or wire rack to allow cooling down a bit before serving.
The puff pastry squares can be enjoyed hot or cold for you next dinner or party.
If you want to warm up these pastry squares, use a regular oven instead of a microwave to keep them crispy.
