Tuesday Tidbits #137 ~Puff Pastry Margherita Pizza

Puff Pastry Margherita Pizza

It’s time for another Tuesday Tidbits! This week flew by. We had lots of family fun this past week. I love it when we can get together with family.

An easy homemade pizza that’s easy to make and quite delicious and is perfect for gatherings is this Puff Pastry Margherita Pizza. With our summer gardens in full swing this a perfect way to use up some tomatoes. There are many renditions of this Pizza on Pinterest. This is my version.

* I sliced the tomatoes and put them on paper towels. Sprinkle the tomatoes with salt. Let them sit for about 20 minutes. This way the juices will come out on the paper towel and won’t make your pizza soggy.

* I placed parchment paper on a sheet pan. When the puff pastry thawed I placed it on the parchment paper. I used a rolling pin to flatten the puff pastry out a bit.

* Mix about a 1/2 cup of olive oil and about a teaspoon of garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush this mixture onto your puff pastry. (Add more if needed.)

* Then Sprinkle 4 oz. of shredded mozzarella onto your pizza.

* Add your sliced tomatoes. (I added sliced black olives as well which is optional.)

* Bake your Margherita Pizza according to your Puff Pastry directions. I baked mine at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the pizza starts turning a golden brown. (Ovens vary.)

* Add fresh Basil and drizzle with a Balsamic Glaze.

This is a quick and easy and quite delicious pizza. Hope you give it a try.

Thanks for the visit! Have a fabulous week to come… Can you believe it will be August soon?

  1. Oh, the good ol’ puff pastry pizza – it’s amazing how good it tastes and so easy – especially when you keep the pastry in the freezer and always on hand for a quick pizza (emergency in some cases) 🥰

      1. I’ve made a few myself over the years. Hope your Tuesday has been terrific. Stay safe and keep well.

  2. I recently made a similar pizza with puff pastry and it was so good! The balsamic glaze and fresh basil really make it and I loved the airy puff pastry crust. Happy Tuesday Nancy and please slow Summer down!

  3. Good morning, Nancy! Oh how I adore pizza! Your pizza looks both beautiful and delicious. I can’t believe August is almost here. July went by in a blink. We move Caroline to college on the 14th of August. Oh, how I wish we could slow these days down. Wishing you a most wonderful day, sweet friend!

    1. Oh Shannon I wish I was there to give you a hug. I always like to give my Mom Friends a care package for when they take their kids to college. It’s chocolate, tissues, potato chips… and a bottle of wine. Hugs to you!

    1. Hi Dawn… it can usually be found near Balsamic Vinegar in most stores. It will be marked Balsamic Glaze and comes in a squeeze bottle. If you can’t find it… it will still be delicious! Or have some balsamic dressing on the side to dip your pizza in it? Not sure if that will work but could give it a try.
      Let me know if you try it. There’s lots of other versions on Pinterest as well.

    1. Thank you Maria! I’m so happy to see you back here in BlogLand! I’ll be by soon to check out your recent postings.
      Happy Tuesday my friend!

    1. Hello my friend. Good to hear from you again. How is the puppy?

      Easy and delicious. Plus, we liked the crispness of the puff pastry as well.

      Happy Tuesday!

  4. Holy cow this looks so amazing Nancy! I love using puff pastry (store bought only it takes too long to make it) and what a clever way to make this delicious looking pizza. It has everything I love especially the balsamic glaze!

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
