Tuna, Fresh Mozzarella, and Basil Pizza
Tuna, Fresh Mozzarella, and Basil Pizz If you have ginger, kalamatan olives, radishes, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the puff pas
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400°F.
Roll out puff pastry on floured work surface to 11-inch square. Using 4 1/2-inch bowl as guide, cut out 4 rounds from pastry.
Transfer pastry to large ungreased baking sheet, spacing apart.
Place another baking sheet atop pastry rounds to weigh down slightly.
Bake until pastry is golden brown and baked through, about 20 minutes. Uncover pastry and cool completely. DO AHEAD: Pastry can be made 6 hours ahead.
Let stand at room temperature.
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Add green onions; sauté until soft but not brown, about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat. Divide green onions among pastry rounds.
Brush tuna lightly with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Alternate 3 tuna slices, 3 mozzarella slices, and 3 basil leaves in concentric circles, slightly overlapping, atop green onions on each pastry round. Scatter tomatoes, olives, and radish slices over each.
Sprinkle each with ginger and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake just until tuna is opaque around edges but still translucent in center, about 3 minutes.
With the pizza, pour a rosé. Try the Domaine Le Galantin 2006 Bandol Rosé ($17), which has stone fruit, mineral, and rose petal flavors.
Recommended wine: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Rose Wine
Merlot, Pinot Noir, and rosé Wine are great choices for Tuna. Though fish is often paired with white wine, 'meatier' fish like tuna can absolutely go with red wine. A Rosé will also pair nicely, particularly if your tunan is prepared with ingredients better suited to a white wine. One wine you could try is Beringer Howell Mountain Bancroft Ranch Merlot. It has 4.2 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 35 dollars.
