Did you know that you could make pizza with puff pastry? If not, you've been missing out. It is SCARY good how delicious a puff pastry pizza crust is: puffy, flaky, crunchy and oh so easy!
All you need to do is thaw the puff pastry and then slather it with toppings: pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, seasoning, and then some Parmesan! It couldn't be easier! Throw it in the oven at 425 for about 20 minutes and you have a quick and delicious meal that everyone will love.
Jessica Merchant's blog, How Sweet Eats, is full of different versions of her puff pastry pizzas. There is a breakfast version, a pesto version, one for pickle lovers and my favorite -her Zucchini, Lemon and Goat Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza that I made several times this summer. They are all delicious and quick - perfect for busy weeknights!
Puff Pastry Pepperoni Pizza
Adapted from How Sweet Eats
by Jessica Merchant
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed
1 cup tomato or marinara sauce, your favorite
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
a bunch of pepperoni, to your liking
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 425F. Place the thawed puff pastry on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Spread the tomato sauce evenly over top, leaving a small border at the edges. Sprinkle on the herbs and garlic, evenly between both sheets. Cover with the cheese and pepperoni. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until super puffed and the cheese is golden. The pastry will look crazy puffed up, but then it will deflate once it is out of the oven. Cover with Parmesan and cut each pastry into 6 slices. Serve!
