Everyone loves pizza! It doesnt matter if you have tomatoes and mozzarella or cover it in 10 different kinds of vegetables/tofu. No matter what combination of toppings you like, that pizza is going to be devoured. I am so use to eating outside pizza but since I started making pizza dough at home, I dont miss outside pizza anymore. Plus homemade dough is better if you are watching your diet. I love baking with puff pastry because it is so versatile. The puffed pastry does most of the work. I use to make puff pastry dough at home but since now its so easy to go grab it from the store, I have given up making it at home. Puff pastry is amazing because you can make anything you like with it, sweet or savory. You can make turnovers, tarts, pizza, puffs, cheese straws, etc. All these things can be made quickly in very short time. When I make puff pizzas, I get very creative. At times I use red sauce, pesto sauce, white sauce, truffle oil, etc. I get creative with toppings too. You can basically make it anyway you like. Use whatever your heart desires. So far my fav is this one, so I thought to share this combination with you 😉 Grab some plates! Pour some wine! Invite your friends and enjoy this delicious pizzas 😉
1 whole sheet frozen puff pastry
olive oil for brushing
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella grated
olives finely sliced
onions finely sliced
tomatoes finely sliced
avocado finely sliced
2 gloves garlic minced
1 jalapeno pepper finely sliced
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp truffle oil to drizzle on top
Thaw the puffed pastry on the counter for 30 minutes. When thawed, carefully open the sheet, then slice it in half down the middle. Place both halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment or aluminum foil. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, then start prepping the pizza toppings.
Brush a thin layer of olive oil on the puff pastry. In the middle layer all your toppings(olives, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, avocados). Add cheese on the top. Add salt and pepper according to your taste. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Pastry could go crazy and puff up in the unwanted areas but dont worry when you take it out it will all settle in the right place.
Remove from the oven and drizzle truffle oil and allow the pizzas to settle for 5 minutes before serving.
P.S. I did not add any sauce this time because i love the taste of truffle oil. You can add red sauce, white sauce, pesto sauce, etc. Basically you can get creative with this pizza. Just remember to go light with the sauce and cheese, The star of the pizza really is the puffed pastry it self!
