How to prepare Mini puff pastry pizzas
To make mini puff pastry pizzas, roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut it into roughly 1.2″x12.” squares with a smooth cutter 1: you’ll make 24 pieces. Place the squares on an oven tray lined with parchment paper in 4 rows of 6. Pierce the puff pastry with a fork 2 and top the first 2 rows with the tomato puree 3.
Add some diced mozzarella to the first row 4, with a pinch of oregano. Now garnish the puff pastry squares in the second row with the capers 5 and a piece of anchovy 6.
Garnish each puff pastry square in the third row with 2 olives and half a dried tomato 7. To finish, add a tuft of spreadable cheese on the puff pastry squares in the fourth row 8, and a grating of lemon peel 9.
Season with a grating of pepper 10 and a few thyme leaves 11. Garnish all the puff pastry squares with a drizzle of oil 12.
Bake in a preheated static oven at 392°F (200°C) for 20 minutes 13. Remove the mini pizzas when golden 14; garnish those with the olives with a few marjoram leaves and those with the mozzarella with some more oregano. Leave to cool until warm and serve you mini puff pastry pizzas 15!
Mini puff pastry pizzas can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days, in a sealed container. Before serving heat them in an oven at 302° for a few minutes.
If you prefer a more golden result, brush the puff pastry pieces with some beaten eggs before topping and baking. You can create lots of different mini square pizza versions, by adding various ingredients!
