  1. Just tried to make this and it looked pretty and flavors were there. However crust was pretty soggy. I let it sit about 15-20 min before flipping. Do u think that was problem? Any suggestions?

    The rocket was great on it. We also added a little crumbled goat cheese.

    • You can sprinkle some breadcrumbs on the tomatoes before placing the puff pastry , it should soak up any extra moisture . The added goat cheese is a great idea , i will try it . Thank you for your comment.
