The best things in life are cheese. Crispy puff pastry topped with olives, sun dried tomatoes, & gooey mozzarella, make these Cheesy Olive and Tomato Tartlets the ultimate holiday treat.
This past weekend, I saw a coupon for Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese, and I couldn’t wait to grab some and create a cheesy new holiday party recipe. I headed on over to Walmart to pick some up, along with a few more holiday party goodies.
These bite-sized treats give you a pop of richness and a warm gooey finish. I’ll definitely be making another batch to take to a holiday party this weekend, especially because they’re so easy to assemble! As for the ones in the pictures… Not gonna lie – Greyson and I paired them with a salad and it was a perfect lunch for two.
How cheesy is that?

- 1 (10 x 9 inch) sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
- all-purpose flour, for dusting
- ¼ cup chopped kalamata olives
- ¼ cup chopped black olives
- ¼ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes (see notes)
- 1 cup Kraft Natural Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- fresh basil, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Lightly dust countertop with flour. Unroll pastry sheet onto counter. Using a fork, poke holes all over sheet.
- With a cookie cutter or pizza cutter, cut pastry into desired shapes. If any of the sheet is leftover, use a rolling pin to flatten and cut again.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place pastry cutouts onto baking sheet ¾ inch apart. Cover with an additional piece of parchment paper and another baking sheet.
- Bake on center oven rack for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove top baking sheet and top piece of parchment paper.
- Combine olives and tomatoes in small bowl. Scoop mixture evenly (about 1 tbsp) onto each tartlet. Sprinkle cheese (a little more than 1 tbsp) onto each tartlet.
- Bake an additional 5-7 minutes, until cheese has melted.
- Remove from oven and top with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
For this recipe, I used a 3-inch round cookie cutter. You can also use a small cookie cutter, pizza cutter, or knife to create any shape you'd like. The number of tartlets and the amount of topping on each will vary.
You can prep ahead by chopping your olives and tomatoes and combining them in a storage container until they're ready to use.
