TIPS
Puff pastry is easiest to work with when it's cold. Thaw it in the refrigerator, and keep it chilled until you're ready to use it.
Soft cheeses like mozzarella are easiest to shred when they're very cold. Freeze it for 15 minutes before shredding.
To make Toasted Baguette Slices, preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Place 24 thin slices of French bread on Large Round Stone with Handles. Lightly brush or spray the bread slices with olive oil. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the bread is lightly browned.
