Don't think pizza. This delicate tart may have the flavors of a fine pie from your local joint, but it's more refined. Not snobby; everyone can relate to warm mozzarella combining with plump juicy tomato slices. The puff pastry just adds an excitement, a newness to what is already familiar. With a bit of pesto drizzled over, this surely isn't pizza. It's better.

Prepare the Ingredients
Mince garlic.Core tomato and cut into 1/4" rounds. Cut rounds into half-moons. Pat tomato dry, and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Patting tomato dry prevents tarts from being soggy.Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely.
Make the Dressing
Add mayonnaise, garlic (to taste), half the Parmesan, white wine vinegar, 1 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a mixing bowl and thoroughly combine.Set aside.
Make the Crust

Remove any paper in between sheets.Place two squares on prepared baking sheet and wet an 1/2" border on each with water.Place each remaining puff pastry square on squares on sheet, overlapping on 1/2" wet border. Press firmly to seal squares together, forming two rectangles. Pressing firmly is key; otherwise, dough will separate as it cooks.
Assemble the Tarts
