  • 2 x 250 g sheets Woolworths frozen all-butter puff pastry
  • 250 g Woolworths Ayrshire ricotta
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • basil pesto, for serving
  • Woolworths petite leaf edible garnish, for serving
  • basil, for serving
  • For the filling:
  • 500 g Woolworths exotic tomato selection, sliced into 1 cm rounds
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the pieces of pastry on top of one another, then roll out slightly so that they stick together.

2. Cut off the corners to make the largest circle possible, then place on a lined baking tray and bake for 12–17 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up. Allow to cool.

3. Whisk the ricotta until slightly fluffy, then add the lemon zest and seasoning. Toss the tomatoes with the olive oil, lemon juice and seasoning.

4. Top the pastry with dollops of the ricotta, tomatoes, basil, pesto and herbs. Season to taste.
