I always want appetizers to be easy,quick and delicious. it is something that has to be prepared right before the guests arrive and you don’t want to spend too much time and have a messy kitchen..;-)
One such alternative is Puff Pastry. I mastered in making curry/vegetable puffs and I don’t want to dull my guests with the same dish again and again.
After looking couple of recipes on internet, Puff Pastry Pizza’s are quite popular. I made it twice and both the times they are a hit.
They have a really nice texture, you can change the toppings and so incredibly easy to make with impressive results. I know it is not hard to find the recipe, however, thought I will share my version:-)
So, lets get started and see what we need:
Thaw the puff pastry as instructed.Preheat the oven to 415 F and place a skillet with 1 tsp of oil and heat on medium flame.
Chop the onions, mushrooms and sweet peppers as shown and sauté the onions and mushrooms until tender
Season the mushroom with some paprika, Oregano, salt and pepper. Spread it on the puff pastry and top it with Mozerella & parmesan cheese and finally with some sweet peppers and bake it for 18-20 minutes.
And you have a delicious appetizer, you can make them as bites too. Also, you can change the topping and make a customized pizza with some salad or soup for dinner.
