On parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet, unroll pastry.

In bowl, stir together red peppers, Fontina, Parmesan, basil and garlic; sprinkle over pastry. Tightly roll up pastry. Arrange, seam side down, on sheet of waxed paper; wrap in waxed paper, twisting ends to seal. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Remove waxed paper. Using serrated knife, slice pastry into scant 1/2-inch thick rounds. Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper– lined rimless baking sheet. Bake in 400°F oven, turning once, until golden, about 20 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes about 18 pieces.
