Puff Pastry Pizza

To enjoy pizza with a buttery, crunchy and flaky crust, you have to use Puff pastry sheets…

Whenever I buy puff pastry, I make Kerala style ground beef puffs out if it. Meat or egg puffs are sold at most bakeries in South India, it’s a delicacy enjoyed as an evening snack along with tea.

The other day, the idea of making pizza using puff pastry sheets hit me real hard and I was so excited to execute the idea. I spread the thawed puff pastry with seasoned tomato sauce and topped with sliced potatoes, shallots, jalapeños and parmesan cheese. The end result was buttery, crunchy and flaky crusted pizza with a delicious potato topping.
