Method

  1. Put a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to fan 200C/conventional 220C/gas 7. (Heating the sheet helps cook the pastry base.) Use the pastry to line a shallow rectangular tin about 20 x 30cm. Prick the base lightly with a fork.
  2. Scatter the Parmesan over the pastry base. Drain the peppers and pat dry on paper towels. (If the peppers are in oil, don’t worry about this part.) Lay the whole peppers widthways across the pastry base. If the peppers aren’t in oil, brush a little over them and the pastry, then season. Bake for about 15 minutes until the pastry is puffy and golden.
  3. Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella. Lay alternating, slightly overlapping lines of tomato and mozzarella over the peppers. Drizzle with oil, scatter with basil leaves and an extra grinding of black pepper, then serve while the pastry is still warm.

Was lovely and simple to make. Perfect summer evening meal with a crispy salad. Didn't feel the need to melt the mozzerella as per other comments.

This is lovely. I added some shredded cooked chicken, mainly because my hubbie thinks he has to have meat every day. Not that I take any notice most of the time! I have also added roasted sliced shallots . Really tasty !

Great for a family meal in the summer with a salad. Also nice if you put it back in the oven to melt the mozzarella.

a great recipe for a family dinner or a summer buffet, but don't do it to far in advance because it goes a bit soggy

This is a family favourite. A light meal - great with a herb salad. Everyone likes it and it is ready in a few minutes. I always have a jar of peppers in the cupboard and a block of pastry in the freezer now
