Want a quick and easy week night meal? No time to let pizza dough rise? Sounds like a night for Puff Pastry Pizza!
Set the oven to 400 degrees F and gather the following ingredients, it’s pizza time! What is needed: package of puff pastry dough (find in the freezer section), jar of pesto (or tomatoe sauce, or fresh tomatoes), green pepper (cut into slices), Italian sausage (cooked), onion slices, oregano, basil, garlic, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese.
Let the puff pastry dough thaw enough to work (but not to the point of being tacky). Place the puff pastry on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll the dough slightly, especially at the folds to flatten. Top pastry with pesto or sauce of choice leaving a border around the edge for the “crust” to form. Add toppings and herbs. Sprinkle with cheese and pop in the oven for 15 minutes, until puffed and golden.
This is a very light pizza as the puff pastry is nice and flaky. One sheet of puff pastry will serve about two persons, at four sliced squares total. If additional servings needed, use more puff pastry. Serve with a side salad if desired. Fast, easy, and quite tasty indeed!
