  2. Squash down the puffed-up pastry inside the scored rim, then top with the ham, cheese, peppers and olives. Sprinkle with oregano and bake for 10-12 mins more until the base is nice and crisp. Scatter with rocket leaves and serve.

This is delicious and easy. My husband loved the thin crust. I used parmigiana instead of mozzarella, added more olives, but omitted the salad. I'm not sure why you need to pre-bake the crust with the tomato paste for so long (or at all). The puree started burning at 8 minutes, and I ended up peeling it off and re-applying it. It should bake on the lowest rack of the oven, and I think you could do the whole tart in one go.

So simple and tasty, I will be making this one again soon. I didn't change a single thing as the flavours were lovely but really you could add whatever you like on top of these.

Very easy and tasty, but would be tempted to use parma ham next time for a bit more flavour.

This was amazing and soooo easy to make. Once id taken the puff pastry base out of the oven after its first 12-15 mins of cooking i sprinkled a layer of Gruyere cheese over the sundried tomato paste before the rest of the toppings, i also added some kabanos sausage sliced. It was so yummy, i will definetly make this again.
