Pesto, Bacon and Tomato Tart

Wondering what you can cook to keep all the tummies in the house happy and full? spoiltpig to the rescue! This quick and easy tart/pizza is full of peppery pesto and tasty tomatoes. Pair that with our yummy spoiltpig bacon and you’re on to a sure-fire winner.

What you'll need:

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 slices unsmoked bacon, diced
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 125g baby mozzarella
  • Extra pesto
  • Rocket

How to prepare:

Preheat the oven to fan-assisted 170C/190C/375F/ gas 5 and line a baking tray. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon pieces until they are done and set aside. Lay the puff pastry sheet on the baking tray and score a 1cm border round the edge taking care not to cut all the way through.

Spread on the pesto, before toping with the bacon, tomatoes and finally the mozzarella. Bake for 20 mins, until the pasty is puffed round the edges and golden. Serve with extra pesto drizzled and rocket leaves on top.

Serves 6 with a side salad.
