  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 12 basil leaves, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • Meanwhile, place the tomatoes, mozzarella, olives, spring onions and basil in a bowl. Drizzle over the oil, then season well and mix to combine.
  • Transfer the pastry cases to a wire rack and spoon in the tomato and olive filling. Serve drizzled with balsamic glaze.
