Preparation steps

1.
Preheat oven to 450º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.
Lay out 1 sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured work surface and roll it out to 10 x 12-inches. Carefully place it on the prepared baking sheet and brush the top with mustard, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Place a layer of ham followed by tomato slices and cheese, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges.
3.
In a small bowl, combine the beaten egg and water, creating an egg wash. Brush the border edges with egg wash.
4.
Roll out the second sheet and place it on top of the filling. Trim the edges straight with a sharp knife and gently press together. Brush the top with the egg wash and carefully cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Season with pepper.
5.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown. Allow to cool for several minutes before cutting. Serve hot or warm.
