Puff Pastry Vegetarian Pizza

It was a good day; after finding a recipe on Sweet Paul’s Blog, I knew I had to make it…and I did. It was so delicious that I will be making it again tomorrow night. I followed the way EASY directions exactly, except…I added a couple of things I needed to use up and some of my fresh herbs, which are in abundance right now - thyme, oregano, rosemary, and at the end of cooking time, some basil dipped in olive oil. Added a couple of chopped green onions and sun dried tomatoes, a few black olives…this was so simple…and too DELICIOUS to be so simple. The puff pastry is now my new favorite pizza crust, tender and flaky. This tasted much more like the European Pizza I used to eat in Germany, no tomato sauce. I love recipes like this, you can use what you have, add extras that you like.

Ready for the oven.

 Ready to eat.

Hi Sixpence,

Your pizza looks yummy and a good way to use up with you have in the fridge. I make a tart with oven roasted tomatoes on puff pastry ( a French recipe ) and that is really good.

Hope that you are having a great week

Hi Carolyn,

I can't stand to throw food out, so I am always changing a recipe a bit. I make my own pastry, but I have NEVER been brave enough to make puff pastry. It is so time-consuming that I would be furious if I spent all that time and it didn't turn out. :) I wanted to add a couple other veggies tonight, and will tomorrow night now that I know how it cooks. Maybe tomorrow I will add the fresh basil after cooking the pizza and not cook the basil at all. Even though it was in the oven only one-two minutes, it took away some of the flavor of the basil. I love the strong flavor from fresh basil, so will try it this way tomorrow night. I could have inhaled this it was so yummy.:)

My week is going well, thank you. Hope you are having a beautiful week.

Now I'm hungry again. That looks fantastic, like a festival in the mouth! :)

LadyCat said...

Wow...this looks delicious! I am having lunch and it consists of cottage cheese and an orange. Boy, do I want that pizza : )
On another note, I just saw the post that you did on the song "Bluebird'. I didn't see it at the time and am so sorry I missed it. Thank you SO much for your kind words in the post. (((hugs)))

Sixpence and A Blue Moon said...

Adrielle, it sure is...:) Thanks so much for visiting, it is such joy when I see your lovely comments. xOx

Ladycat, I LOVE cottage cheese with tomatoes or fruit. A great summer lunch.:)
Ah, it is so easy to miss comments and post - don't worry about it. I miss postings all the time. Some days I have more time for the computer than other days, therefore, I miss a lot. I try to visit my favorites on a regular basis, but I don't always do so great at that.
Have a lovely day!

OK...that's it. Where do you live? I'm moving into your neighborhood. hee hee

The pizza looks great and I can't remember the last time I made my own homemade pizza. Ummmm. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are well. Hugs

Sixpence and A Blue Moon said...

Sophia, you must try this - too damn easy to be so good. I'd rather move where you are.:) I'm in the Midwest...wanting to be somewhere else.:) But I would love it if you lived in the neighborhood.:)

Wishing you a wonderful, productive, creative day.
