2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs

*Picture depicts parm cheese, you may sprinkle with soy parm if you wish.

Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; brush with 1/2 teaspoon oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon bread crumbs. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Repeat layers, being careful to brush oil all the way to edges.

Fold each side 3/4 in. toward center to form a rim. Spread with pesto. Alternately arrange the red and yellow tomato slices. Sprinkle with pepper.

Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and crispy. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove parchment paper before cutting. Garnish with basil. Yield: 8 servings.
