Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (10 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells, thawed

  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (about 4 ounces)

  • 1 medium green or red pepper, chopped (about 3/4 cup)

  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)

  • 3/4 cup Prego® Pizzeria Style Pizza Sauce

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella or Swiss cheese (about 4 ounces)

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry shell into a 7-inch circle.  Place the pastry circles onto the baking sheets. Using a fork, prick the pastry circles thoroughly.

  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until the pastries are golden.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks.

  4. Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, mushrooms, pepper and onion and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

  5. Spread 2 tablespoons sauce on each pastry to within 1/2-inch of the edge.  Divide the vegetable mixture among the pastries and top with the cheese.

  6. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Tip

The kind of pan you use can affect baking times. A nonstick or dark glazed baking sheet may bake faster, so adjust your time and check pastry while baking.

If your Puff Pastry becomes soft and sticky while working with it, chill it in the fridge for a few minutes. Place in the refrigerator between rollings, too.

Always flip and place the cut side of the Puff Pastry down on the baking sheet.

You can thaw Puff Pastry in the fridge. Separate and place each sheet on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and defrost in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.

"This is a great recipe to make that gets all the kids involved to make their own, individual pizzas. The crust is sooo much tastier than regular pizza dough and it is a fun way to get everyone involved in making dinner!"
