  • You will need
  • Method
  • Ready-rolled puff pastry 1 sheet
  • Egg 1, beaten
  • Chorizo 80g, sliced
  • Watercress 85g
  • Crème fraiche 120ml
  • Red peppers 2, sliced and roasted
  • Mozzarella 100g
  1. Heat the oven to 220°c / gas 7.
  2. Lay the pastry onto a baking sheet and score around the edge to make a 1cm border. Brush with egg wash then cook in the oven for 8 minutes until just golden.
  3. Cook the chorizo in a hot frying pan until browned, remove from the pan and set aside. Tip away most of the chorizo fat, leaving behind just a coating on the pan, reduce the heat and add the watercress. Toss over the heat until just wilted then remove from the pan and roughly chop then season.
  4. Once the pastry is cooked remove from the oven and gently press down the risen centre. Spread the crème fraiche over the tart, leaving the borders clear, then scatter over the wilted watercress, peppers and chorizo. Finally, tear the mozzarella over the top and return to the oven for 8-10 minutes until hot and bubbling.
