Description

These super easy, super light pizzas are one of my favorite appetizers. Have fun with the toppings and let them puff away!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Sheet Frozen Puffed Pastry
  • Olive Oil For Brushing
  • ½ cups Fresh Mozzarella, Grated
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 8 ounces, weight Mushrooms, Washed And Sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ¼ cups White Whine
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 8 whole Yellow And/or Red Grape Tomatoes, Halved
  • ¼ cups Goat Cheese (chevre)
  • 12 whole Basil Leaves (chiffonade)

Preparation

Thaw the puffed pastry on the counter for 45 minutes or in the fridge for several hours.

When thawed, carefully open the sheet, then slice it in half down the middle. Place both halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a baking mat.

Preheat oven to 415 degrees, then start on the pizza toppings.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute mushrooms and garlic in the butter for 2 minutes, then pour in the wine and season with salt and pepper. Allow to continue cooking for 5-7 minutes, until mushrooms are cooked down and liquid is mostly gone. Remove from heat and set aside.

To build the pizzas: Brush a thin layer of olive oil in the center part of each half of puffed pastry.

On each half, sprinkle on half the cheese so that it covers all but a 1/2 inch border all around the pastry.

On one half, sprinkle on the cooked mushrooms. On the other half, sprinkle on the halved tomatoes. Press both mushrooms and tomatoes lightly into the cheese.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 15 minutes pastry could go crazy and puff up in areas here and there, but don’t worry! It’ll be fine.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle the goat cheese crumbles on both halves. Allow the pizzas to sit for 10 minutes. If there are any big air bubbles/puffs, just give them a little smush or wait and they’ll calm down.

Sprinkle on basil, slice into pieces, and serve!

OK, I made these for my Oscar Party (of 2 – myself and my husband ) except I made his mushroom’s with tequila and added cooked spicy breakfast sausage. We have been doing mushroom’s with tequila for awhile now. Really adds some zing to the mushrooms (we aren’t wine people). Had to cook about 10 minutes longer but came out perfect. Maybe my oven needs calibrating.

Both pizza’s were really good and will definitely be making them again.
