Ingredients

  • 1 package 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 ears corn
  • 2 small zucchini cut into a small dice
  • cracked black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons pesto below
  • 1 large tomato thinly sliced
  • 2 cups GO Veggie! lactose free mozzarella shreds
  • chopped fresh basil and GO Veggie! parmesan for topping

For the pesto:

  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup GO Veggie! lactose free parmesan topping
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ¼ cup olive oil

Instructions

  • To prepare the pesto, add the basil, parmesan topping, pine nuts, and garlic to a food processor. Cover and pulse several times to form a thick paste. Scrape down the dies, if needed. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil. to store, cover with a thin layer of olive oil and refrigerate up to 3 days.
  • Heat your oven to 400F. Unroll the puff pastry and cut each sheet in half, cross-wise, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicon mat. Leaving a 1/4 inch border around each sheet, dock the pastry several times with the tines of a fork. Bake 10 minutes.
  • While the pastry cooks, heat the oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Cut the corn kernels away from the cob and add them to the hot pan. Add the zucchini and cook 5-6 minutes, or until lightly charred. Season with cracked black pepper.
  • Brush the partially-baked puff pastry with the egg, then spread 1 tablespoon of pesto onto the center of each piece. Top with tomato slices, mozzarella, and sautéed vegetables.
  • Return to the oven and bake 8-10 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven and top with chopped basil. Serve with additional parmesan topping.
