Puff pastry, tomato concentrate and half a pack of pepperoni and we have a tray full of delicious mini pizzas that take about 10 minutes to make.

Pizza in England can be expensive. Plus, I  don’t always have the time to make fresh dough. These are the factors that led me to creating these pizza rolls. Puff pastry, tomato concentrate and half a pack of pepperoni and we had a tray full of delicious mini pizzas that took about 10 minutes to make.

Swap the pepperoni for parma ham and add feta cheese and you’ve got something that could easily be served up as canapés. Or fry up some mushrooms and onions add create a veggie option that’s just as tasty.

 

here's what you'll need...

  • One pack of puff pastry
  • One egg (beaten)
  • 10-15 slices of pepperoni
  • A few basil leaves roughly chopped
  • A handful of grated cheese
  • Tomato sauce or tomato concentrate
  • Pepper to season

    I took them out again and added the cheese before putting them back into the oven for another 2 minutes or at least until the cheese has melted and started to brown.

    Feel free to use any toppings you’’d normally have, but you can’’t really go wrong with pepperoni and cheese can you? And if you do make your own I would love to know what toppings you’’d choose!
