These little canapés are bursting with flavour. Fresh ripe tomatoes, basil, and rich buffalo mozzarella in a golden flaky pastry, almost reminiscent of puff pastry. An excellent finger food or any gathering, for sure. If tomatoes are in season, use the fresh ones, they have much more flavour than the canned ones. But, if there are not any fresh tomatoes available for you, you can use the ones from a can, just make sure to strain them really well, because otherwise you can end up with too much liquid in the filling. Ideally, use fresh mozzarella, as well as fresh Ricotta cheese, for the maximum richness of the dough, and of the filling. If you wish, you can even use extra virgin olive oil, it can only make these golden parcels even tastier.
