Ingredients

  • 1 roll puff pastry thawed
  • 4 tbsp basil pesto see note above
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 cup sundried tomatoes chopped (see note above)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • fresh basil to serve

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll the pastry out to around 5mm thick and cut a large circle out of the pastry.
  • Lay the pastry on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Mark a circle with a medium-sized bowl and with a sharp knife, cut 4 cuts into the center circle. (As demonstrated in the video.)
  • Spread the pesto around the star then add the mozzarella cheese and sundried tomatoes. 
  • Bring one point of the star over the filling while simultaneously bringing the outer edge inwards. Brush with a little beaten egg and pinch together. 
  • Continue until all the points of the star have been connected to the outer edge of the pastry.
