During the holidays, I made one of my favorite quick appetizers – puff pastry-wrapped brie. It is such an easy, yet appears elevated, appetizer. However, I had an extra sheet of puff pastry and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I usually used puff pastry to make. well, pastries. But I figured there must be another way to use the puff pastry. Enter puff pastry pizza. This might be my new favorite and the easiest way to make pizza at home.
What is Puff Pastry?
Puff pastry is a type of pastry made from dough that is repeatedly folded and rolled to create layers of butter between layers of dough. When the pastry is baked, the butter melts and creates steam, which causes the pastry to puff up and become flaky and crispy. Puff pastry is often used in pastries such as croissants and Napoleons.
