1. preheat oven to 375°F. on a lightly floured baking sheet, roll out puff pastry. using a fork, make holes in pastry, leaving a 1" border around edges.

2. in a small bowl, combine garlic & 1 tbsp olive oil. brush pastry with garlic oil, except for edges. arrange lemon slices, tomatoes, & thyme on top. season with salt & pepper, & drizzle with 1 tbsp oil.
