  6. Place the puff pastry (or phyllo pastry) on a rimmed, greased, baking sheet and cut the excess on the edges.
  7. Spread the herb ricotta evenly over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Spread the sautéed leeks over the ricotta. Arrange the tomatoes in a concentric pattern over the leeks. Arrange the zucchini slices in a concentric pattern over the tomatoes.
  8. Sprinkle the parmigiano reggiano over the top.
  9. Fold the border of the pastry up and over the edge of the tomatoes.
  10. Bake the galette in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden and puffed.
  11. Remove the galette from the oven, sprinkle with fresh basil over the top and set aside to rest for about 10 minutes.
