If you are looking for the taste of Italy, look no further than this delicious appetizer! This stuffed puff pastry is filled to the brim with fresh mozzarella, juicy vine ripened tomatoes, Italian olive oil and a fresh basil leaf. With each bite, you'll be transported to a quaint villa in the hills of Tuscany. Pair each puff with a crisp glass of white wine for a truly Italian experience!

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) can of refrigerated puff pastry dough
  • 4 ounces of fresh mozzarella, chopped
  • 2 medium vine tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
