    SweetSueAl's Note:

    From America's Test Kitchen. A recipe designed to render a crispy crust. They say: "Thawing the frozen puff pastry in the refrigerator overnight will help prevent cracking while unfolding it. Be sure to use a low-moisture supermarket mozzarella sold in block form, not fresh water-packed mozzarella. If you prefer to do some advanced preparation, the tart shell can be prebaked through step 1, cooled to room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap, and kept at room temperature for up to two days before being topped and baked with the mozzarella and tomatoes.

      I had gone to post this awhile ago from my ATK cookbook and I saw you already beat me to it!This is excellent, though I did make a few changes in processes which I hope you don't mind. I only used one sheet of puff pastry and just smoothed the folds with my fingers. Then rather than cut off the side pieces I just folded the outside in about 1/2 inch the whole way around. I did poke thoroughly before baking but it puffed up a lot, which really didn't end up being a problem, I was just surprised by the size of it lol. To the tomatoes I added salt as well as sprinkled them liberally with garlic powder. Even though the pastry was all puffed up I just laid the tomatoes on top and once it baked the juices deflated the pastry a little. This was so yummy. I served it as a side to a steak salad and it made a perfect dinner. Thank you for the recipe!

      This is really delicious and a crowd pleaser. Made it for a Christmas party and the colors are quite festive, although I'll be anxious to try this in the summer when tomatos are in season and even more delicious.
