Puff Pastry Pizza

This past weekend I was having a huge Netflix and Pizza kind of craving. I just wanted to veg out on my bed, eat some pizza, and watch Friends. I was about to order some pizza when I thought how much of it would go to waste, how fatty it is, how I’d have to physically go and pick it up, blah blah. So I figured, why not make some myself!

The easiest part about Puff Pastry Pizza is that all the ingredients are most likely already in my kitchen, I can customize this pizza with any topping I want, and it’s super fast and easy to make.

Traditional pizza dough can be pretty heavy at times, then you have to add the sauce and the cheese, etc; it just gets really heavy for me. I wanted to have something a little on the lighter side, so I thought puff pastry should do the trick! I always have some on hand and luckily had a sheet thawed already from a cream cheese blueberry pastry I made the other day (I’ll put up the recipe for that soon as well). What I love about puff pastry is how light and airy it is, it doesn’t taste like dough and is definitely not as heavy either. It makes the perfect amount so I don’t have to feel bad about storing leftovers.

I decided to go with the classic pepperoni but you can easily use absolutely any topping you want; it’s so much fun to play around with all the different ways you can make this.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400ΒΊ F.

  3. Take out the puff pastry and roll it out to stretch out the sheet. With a pizza cutter, cut the sheet right down the middle and put both pieces on a baking sheet.
  4. Using a pastry brush, brush the olive oil and garlic mixture on top of each pastry sheet.
  5. Top each sheet with cheese, making sure to lay it out evenly throughout.
  6. Add the tomatoes and pepperoni (or your desired toppings) and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Garnish with parsley and serve hot. Enjoy πŸ™‚
