If you are looking for a last minute New Year's Eve appetizer, I've got the perfect one. These puff pastry pizzas are quick to make (10 minutes to prep, 15 minutes to bake) and they are super delicious!
They taste like mini pizzas with the added fluffiness and richness of puff pastry.
PUFF PASTRY PIZZA
- 2 roma tomatoes sliced thin
- fresh mozzerella
- fresh basil
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan - we used a three cheese mix (fontina, asiago, and parmesan) from Wholefoods
- olive oil
- 1 package puff pastry dough
- salt and pepper
Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut puff pastry into 2" x 3" rectangles.
Brush with a light coat of olive oil. Use a fork to polk about 8 - 10 holes in the center of the pastry where you are going to place the tomato slice.
Add your thin slices of tomato.
Add slices of mozzarella.
Add about a half turn of pepper, and a pinch of salt over the mozzarella.
Sprinkle grated parmesan on top.
Add thin slices of fresh basil.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Since it's almost New Year's, I'm serving mine with champagne shooters made with champagne, a touch of cranberry juice, and a blackberry for garnish. They're not only pretty, they're yummy!
Have a wonderful New Year's Eve! I look forward to sharing parties, recipes, crafts and all that great stuff with you in 2013!!
