Preheat oven to 360°F (180°C).

Brown onions in a frying pan with butter.

Add the tomatoes, bell pepper and zucchini to the pan with the onions and add a little salt. Stir well.

Cook until vegetables are golden brown. Reduce the amount of liquid as much as possible, to avoid a mushy pie crust. Add pepper to taste. Set aside.

Pour a drizzle of olive oil and maple syrup into a tart tin, spread out and sprinkle over the rosemary.

Pour the cooked vegetable into the dish and add sliced mozzarella.

With a fork, poke a few holes in the crust and place on top of the vegetables.

Bake for approx. 30 min.

Once the Tatin is cooked, remove from the oven and turn it upside down onto a large serving plate.

Decorate with slices of fresh bocconcini and fresh basil leaves.

Serve either warm or cold!
